Title

Letter from George M. Modlin to Eloise Severinson

Description

This is a letter from President George M. Modlin to Dr. Eloise Severinson, the regional civil rights director of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW), responding to a letter Modlin had received on March 22 from HEW, giving suggestions on how the university could comply with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Modlin writes to apologize for the delayed response, and then goes on to write that that he will discuss Severinson’s letter at the next meeting of the University’s Administrative Council. He writes that the Administrative Council, composed of administrative officers throughout all the different divisions of the University, will take the first steps to follow the recommendations listed in Severinson’s letter. He writes that he will be in touch as soon as the meeting occurs, but reassures Severinson that the University has every intention of complying with all of the recommendations.
