Title

Letter to Eva Wong from Marguerite Roberts
Westhampton College

Description

A letter from Marguerite Roberts, Westhampton Dean, to Eva Wong, a student at Westhampton College. Wong's name was misspelled "Wang" in this letter. The letter informed Wong that she had been placed on disciplinary probation for "disobeying the directive of the Dean of Students," and that her scholarship would be taken away unless she fulfilled all the requirements, which included "carrying out the policies of the University." Wong was in trouble for bringing a friend, an African student at the Union Seminary, to the Westhampton College Song Contest after being told that she was not allowed to do so.
