Article "Registrars Seek To Overcome 150 Years Of Black Exclusion"

Description

The article "Registrars Seek To Overcome 150 Years Of Black Exclusion" published by The Collegian on January 18th, 1973, describes University of Richmond's administrators' efforts to reconcile 150 year history of excluding black people, to instead attract them to UR. Mary Ellen Anderson, former Director of Admissions at Westhampton College said, "We have more applicants now than we will ever have beds for. Thus there is really no sensible reason for a recruiting program." For the 1973-1974 school year, in total there were six applicants from black students.
