Transcript TO: President A. D. Bruce PROM: Clanton W. Williams SUBJECT: Integration DATE: March 13, 1956 The Problem ■ iwii»MWii.. mil i.i ■mi. mr ii At the Instructions of the president a University~wlde committee was established to assemble the facts and to present conclusions and recommendations to the president relative to admission of Negro students to the University of Houston. Assumptions 1. It is assumed that the University of Houston will be so far regarded as a state institution as to make it subject to the laws and court decisions of the State of Texas and of the United States on segregation in such institutions. 2. That being the case, and in view of the series of pertinent court decisions, it is inevitable that Negroes must be admitted to the University of Houston. 3. It is assumed further that it is in the best interests of the University and all concerned that the transition to integration be accomplished with a minimum of emotional disturbance and adverse publicity. Facts Bearing on the Problem 1. In recognition of this problem, on August 31, 1955 the president of the University appointed a University Committee on Integration "to study the problems relative to integration.* That Committee, on February 27, 1956, submitted a report to the president, a copy of which is attached as part of the "Facts Bearing on the Problem." 2. On February 28, 1956, after consultation with the Board of Regents, the president issued instructions that that Committee should be enlarged, and that the new Committee should assemble all additional information pertinent to the problem and should assist in preparation of this study on the subject. Consequently, the Committee was enlarged to include Dean A. A. White of the College of Law (a native Texan), Dean of Women Bessie Ebaugh (a native Houstonian), Dr. Howard F. McGaw and Dr. Theo Hatfield (both Southerners), and Dr. Alfred Neumann (Vice Chairman of the Faculty Assembly who is scheduled to be Chairman next academic year). This Committee*s deliberations have been held in secret.
