From S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett
Letter from University of Missouri registrar S. W. Canada to William S. Hogsett, forwarding a copy of his reply to Lucile Bluford dated August 21 based on Hogsett's suggestions. He writes that Kenneth Teasdale and Mr. Sappington approved his reply, and also mentions that the newspaper correctly quotes from the opinion in the case. At the time, Bluford was the managing editor of the Kansas City Call and seeking admittance to the masters degree program at MU's School of Journalism. After repeated efforts to enter the program, and repeated denials due to her race, she filed a lawsuit against the university that eventually was heard before the Missouri Supreme Court.
