Title

Letter to the Editor "Miss Higgins Praises Board"

Description

This letter by Bonnie Higgins to the editor of The Collegian addressed the integration of black students into University College in 1964. Higgins, a junior at Westhampton College, expressed that the Board of Trustees should be highly praised for integrating the American Institute of Banking (AIB) courses offered at the University's night program. She claimed it was equally unfortunate that the University was reluctant to integrate completely. Higgins advised that the Board rethink its present position and integrate the entire University campus to stay "consistent with the ideals of its Christian foundation."
