Letter and reply from Robert A. Moore to the Dean of Admissions

Description

Robert A. Moore, a student at the College of the Pacific, was writing to the Dean of Admissions for a Race Relations course on December 8, 1952. He inquired about whether or not the University of Richmond accepted black students, how long they had done so or if they didn't, if they could picture integration in the University's future. The Secretary to the President responded by stating that the University of Richmond did not accept black students, and did not see integration in the University's immediate future.
