Transcript April 25, 1956 s Mrs. Bennie Benton Savannah 1516 North Street Texarkana, Texas Dear Mrs, Savannah: In reply to correspondence between you and officials of the University of Houston and to assist you in your planning, the following information appears to be pertinent: 1. To date no Negro has been admitted to the University of Houston; 2. The matter is currently under serious study by the University and its Board of Regents; 3# It appears likely that integration at the graduate level will be preliminary to admission of undergraduate Negro students. If you qualify as a graduate of an accredited college and desire to pursue graduate work at the University of Houston, I would appreciate a personal letter to me setting forth your general qualifications, the degree you wish to pursue, and the date at which you wish to be admitted. If there are several highly qualified candidates for advanced degrees who would be willing to approach this delicate problem in a joint spirit of cooperation and finesse, it might be appropriate for them to meet with me personally to discuss the matter in some detail. ^ Very truly yours, Clanton W. Williams ekr
