From S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett

Description: 

Letter from University of Missouri registrar S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett, forwarding on a letter sent by Lucile Bluford to Lincoln University President Sherman D. Scruggs. He writes that he has not acknowledged receiving the letter, and wonders if any acknowledgment is necessarily. At the time, Bluford was the managing editor of the Kansas City Call and her effort to gain admittance to the masters degree program at MU's School of Journalism, and repeated denials due to her race, lead to a case that eventually was heard before the Missouri Supreme Court.
