Title

Association of American Law Schools
Letter from Vernon X. Miller to George M. Modlin

Description

The Association of American Law Schools in 1963 voted to censure the T. C. Williams School of Law for not complying with the Association’s policy by maintaining racial segregation. The report shows that Dean Muse of the law school was the one who reported the University of Richmond’s failure to adhere to the standard. In a letter from Vernon X. Miller, the Secretary-Treasurer of the Association of American Law Schools, to Dr. Modlin, Miller said that “most of us realize that much of this sort of thing is an imposition on people of good will” in his framing of the enclosed vote for censure.
