Transcript University of Houston 3 801 CULLEN BOULEVARD HOUSTON 4, TEXAS OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT May 23, 1957 Mr. Leonard 0. Smith, DT3 Dental Department NAS, Whldbey Island Oak Harbor, Washington Dear Mr. Smith: Your letter of May 7 regarding admission to the University of Houston for the Spring Semester, 1958, has been referred to me. I must report to you that to date no Negro has been admitted to the University of Houston. The matter of desegregation is currently a subject of serious study on the part of the University and its Board of Governors. Since your home apparently is In Houston, you will doubtless see press notices when a final decision has been reached. In the mean< time, may I suggest that you contact Texas Southern University to prepare the way for your education as you leave the service. Sincerely, Clanton W# Williams President ekr
