Memorandum recounting a meeting with Lucile Bluford as recounted by S. W. Canada, registrar at the University of Missouri. Canada writes that Bluford visited his office the afternoon of February 5, 1941, with another woman, to follow up on her telegram reporting that Lincoln University offered no journalism coursework and thus is not a substite for University of Missouri's School of Journalism. She requests admission to the MU program, and Canada reiterates that he has no authority to offer her admission.
