Transcript University of Houston 3 801 CULLEN BOULEVARD HOUSTON 4, TEXAS OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT May 12, 1958 Miss Betty Jo Montgomery 2733 Welton Denver 5* Colorado Dear Miss Montgomery: I am replying to your letter addressed to the Director of Admissions of the Houston Junior College since the Houston Junior College is a Division of the University of Houston. In answer to your question as to whether Negroes are admitted to the University of Houston* I. must reply that to date none has been admitted. The subject of desegregation is a matter of active study on the part of our Board of Governors* but no action can be expected in time to change our admission policies for the fall* 1958. May I point out to you* however* that we have in Houston an excellent sister institution* Texas Southern University. As a state institution for Negroes* it has tuition much lower than ours* the University of Houston being a privately supported institution. Sincere thanks for your interest in the University of Houston. Sincerely yours* Clanton W. Williams President ekr
