Title

Letter from Ira D. Hudgins to George M. Modlin

Description

Minister of Franklin Baptist Church, Ira D. Hudgins, wrote this letter to President of the University of Richmond, George M. Modlin, on February 20, 1967, to follow-up on the possibility of enrolling a Chinese student at Westhampton College. Minister Hudgins had completed this young woman's application and transcript forms, however, after a conversation with the Westhampton College registrar, he got the feeling that student may not thrive academically. Because of this, Minister Hudgins was now attempting to get her enrolled at Averett College and expressed his hope that if after two years the unnamed student proved herself, she could transfer to Westhampton College. He ended the letter by asking President Modlin if the "Oriental Scholarship fund" could be used to support this student's education.
