Title

Letter from Wildman S. Kincheloe Jr. to George M. Modlin

Description

Richmond College alum, lawyer, and World War II veteran, Wildman S. Kincheloe wrote President George Modlin on June 12, 1961, to express his concerns with the comments of the commencement speaker, fellow Richmond College alum, Dr. Claudius O. Johnson. Kincheloe had read a summary of the "off-color" speech in the Richmond Times-Dispatch and wasn't pleased with its tone, and neither were some other people with whom he spoke. He ensured the president knew he wasn't criticizing him. However, he did feel the need to express his concerns.
