Article: "No Race Discrimination at W&L"

Description

The language surrounding W&L’s decision to admit negro applicants at first glance appears careful and characteristic of our archive. If one were to rummage around the Trustee’s and President’s papers, aside from the blatant racism of few, the language matches exactly W&L’s historic responses, that is, W&L upon desegregation took up the stance that there never existed a policy of racial discrimination. The statement informed the country that the admission of people of color to the university had always been implied. In this 1964 article, a member of Virginia Intercollegiate Press Association examines the statement from then President Fred Cole which also appears on the same page.
