From William S. Hogsett to Rubey M. Hulen
Letter from William S. Hogsett to Rubey M. Hulen, agreeing that the $65,000 state appropriation for Lincoln University be earmarked for a School of Journalism, though expressing disappointment that more funding would not be available for other departments. At the time, Bluford was the managing editor of the Kansas City Call and seeking admittance to the masters degree program at MU's School of Journalism. After repeated efforts to enter the program, and repeated denials due to her race, she filed a lawsuit against the university that eventually was heard before the Missouri Supreme Court.
