Letter from Austin E. Grigg to George M. Modlin

Description

This is a letter from Austin Grigg, Dean of the University of Richmond, to University President George M. Modlin. The letter outlines the various administrative efforts employed by the University to comply with Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) regulations, particularly as they relate to recruiting minority students. Grigg states that despite attempting to recruit minority students through several different methods, there has been no success. Grigg notes that he had mailed offers to both Virginia Union University and Virginia State but that neither college had responded. Grigg writes that these efforts will at the very least show compliance with HEW regulations. Before closing the letter Grigg asserts that he is in good standing with the "Negro" administrators and the main reason for their failure is due to issues of transportation and compensation.
