Letter from President George M. Modlin to H. I. Willott and W. T. Sanger

Description

In this letter sent on January 13, 1956, President George M. Modlin wrote to H. I. Willott, the Superintendent of Richmond City Schools, and W. T. Sanger, the President of the Medical College of Virginia. According to Modlin, this letter was in response to a letter sent by Willcott on January 17. Modlin wrote that he will not agree to serve as vice chairman of the Central Committee for Educational Television until there are clear expectations on what the three of them would work on together. He wanted to discuss this with representatives from Richmond television stations to "be more certain of their attitudes toward this new educational development." Modlin claimed that if "something constructive may be accomplished by our working together," then he would take the position. However, the details of the new educational development is unstated.
