Letter from William Hogsett to University of Missouri President Frederick A. Middlebush regarding the Bluford vs. Canada trial. Hogsett gives thanks to Lee-Carl Overstreet, S. W. Canada, and Dean Martin for their assistance in the trial, abnd notes that their case has been submitted to the circuit court and they should expect a decision shortly. 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.
