Title

Telegraph from Richard V. Carter to George M. Modlin

Description

This document is a telegram from Richard V. Carter, State Editor for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, to George M. Modlin, the President of the University of Richmond, that was sent on June 24, 1949. Carter wrote to Modlin because the Richmond Times-Dispatch wanted to know the university’s reaction to the House Unamerican Activities Committee investigation of communism in American colleges. Carter asked the following three questions: "Have you received questionnaire or any request from the committee in regard to textbooks used at your institution?", "Did you reply? If so, what was your answer?", and "Do you have any comment please on committee’s current probe?" In response, President Modlin wrote that the university did not receive any requests from the House Unamerican Activities Committee.
