Letter from President George M. Modlin to Dean F.D.G. Ribble

Description

This document is a letter from President George M. Modlin to the University of Virginia School of Law Dean F. D. G Ribble that was sent on February 15, 1952. This letter was sent in response to the "Report and Resolution on racial discrimination," in which the Association of American Law Schools addressed racial problems in law schools. However, the University of Richmond’s Board of Trustees believed that the Association’s resolution was "extreme" considering that "different institutions have dissimilar problems and operate under different conditions." Therefore, the Trustees’ opinion was that racial segregation at the University of Richmond "will disappear more or less gradually and naturally" and were concerned that the Association was forcing the immediate elimination of segregation.
