Article "Alumni Elect Robert Allen"

Description

This article in the Summer 1961 Alumni Bulletin announces the new Alumni Council president, Dr. Robert W. Allen (RC '34). The article details the Alumni Day activities, including a luncheon, classroom visitation, and baseball game, among other activities. During the luncheon, alumni leaders, and seniors from Richmond College and School of Business Administration were given special recognition. One photo titled "Old Friends Meet" shows an alumnus, Watkins Fugate, RC '32, talking with an African American staff member. The caption states that Fugate is chatting "with an old friend, the ageless Jackson who presided at the coffee urn." Jackson is the only African American noted on the page.
