Description: 

Letter from Rubey M. Hulen to William S. Hogsett and Kenneth Teasdale, reporting that the Missouri Senate has earmarked the $65,000 appropriation for Lincoln University to be used "for the purpose of establishing, maintaining, and operating a school of journalism." 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.
