Description

Letter from William S. Hogsett to University of Missouri registrar S. W. Canada, suggesting Canada need not reply to letters from Lucile Bluford, suggesting she "has now been placed in the nuisance class" after losing her two lawsuits against Canada. 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.
