Title

Letter from George M. Modlin to Daniel H. Kruger

Description

This document is a letter in response to Daniel H. Kruger’s August 22, 1967 letter to President George M. Modlin. In this letter, Modlin stated that there is no quota for Jewish students at Westhampton College or at the University of Richmond. Modlin claimed that the Westhampton Director of Admissions had to "check every application to get the information," which was evidence that the quota did not exist. Notations can be seen on Kruger's letter to support this claim. Furthermore, she found that 11 Jewish girls from Virginia applied, seven were accepted, and three enrolled. Modlin wrote that the university was "proud of its open admission policies and of the absence of any religious intolerance on the campus."
