From S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett

Description: 

Letter from University of Missouri registrar S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett regarding an April 28 letter from Lucile Bluford, with which she included a copy of a letter to Lincoln University president Sherman Scruggs asking that her letter to be accepted as her standing application. Canada writes that he is unclear how to handle an application to a course that does not and may not exist in the future, as MU had temporarily shut down their own journalism program. 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.
