Letter from George W. Jennings to George M. Modlin

Description

This document is a letter from George W. Jennings, an Associate Professor of Economics, to President George M. Modlin that was sent on March 26, 1964. According to Jennings, at the School of Business Administration’s faculty meeting, Jennings mentioned that "a member of the Board of Directors of the Tuckahoe Elementary P.T.A. questioned the line of succession of board members of the Virginia Educational TV which P.T.A.’s, along with other organizations, have been asked to support." Since the meeting, they had a drive for donations and raised over three hundred dollars. However, some questioned whether "‘left-wing liberals could not infiltrate the board’" in the organization of the ETV program. Jennings wrote to Modlin for an answer because without one, "support for the ETV program may be lost."
