Title

Letter and reply from Carol D. Silver to George M. Modlin

Description

Carol Silver, a Westhampton College student, wrote President George Modlin a letter expressing how impressed she was by the University's new stance on integration. The University of Richmond enrolled its first black student in 1964 at the University College campus on Lombardy Street. She went on to say that if the Board of Trustees integrated Westhampton, she would be happy to share a room with a black girl. President Modlin responded by thanking Miss Silver for notifying him of her opinion on "the possible integration of Westhampton College."
