From S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett
Letter from University of Missouri registrar S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett, forwarding a photocopy of a August 21 letter from Lucile Bluford requesting admission to the university for the fall 1941 semester. Canada requests Hogsett suggest a reply. 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.
