From Allen S. Peal to Gov. Ben Paulen

Description: 

Letter from Allen S. Peal to Governor Ben Paulen, writing about his concerns with Western University's president, F. J. Peck. Peal writes that he was rejected for the position of Dean at the Negro Topeka school due to the "powerful 'influence' of 'Dr. Peck,'" and that Peck has created other issues for his attempts to obtain teaching jobs. He accuses Peck of being a "dirty coward" who has "illiterate henchmen" who are running him out of Kansas.
