From Dr. F. A. Middlebush to Chester A. Franklin
Letter from University of Missouri president Frederick A. Middlebush to Kansas City Call editor Chester A. Franklin in response to Franklin's letter of May 21. Middlebush thanks Franklin for the copy of The Call he enclosed, and writes that he is "interested in the statement of purpose indicated in [Franklin's] communication." At the time, Bluford was the managing editor of the Kansas City Call and her effort to gain admittance to the masters degree program at MU's School of Journalism, and repeated denials due to her race, lead to a case that eventually was heard before the Missouri Supreme Court.
