Title

Memo from William H. Leftwich to Eva Tashjian-Brown and W. Carter Young

Description

This February 21, 1980 memorandum is from University of Richmond Vice President for Student Affairs William H. Leftwich to W. Carter Younger and Eva Tashjian-Brown, the legal counsels retained by the University. The memo celebrates Tashjian-Brown's phone call to let Leftwich know that the Office of Civil Rights has decided "not to pursue legal action" against the University. Leftwich writes, "I had always heard that one 'can't fight City Hall.' But, by golly, we did and we won!" Leftwich anticipates a renewed enthusiasm as the University moves forward to implement affirmative action plans. The memo is copied to Dr. E. Bruce Heilman.
