Transcript Mano for the Record On Friday, June 15>, at 10 AM, Mr* Horace Eugene Stevenson and Mr. Roy West discussed the possibility of their dntering the DH School of Architecture •with Di& CWWilliams and ARNeumann. Both are now student* at Tuskegee Institute, That institution has no school of architecture* Both are from Houston, Mr. Stevenson's application had been received June 1 and upon Dr. Williamsf answer of June 7> Mr, Stevenson had sought the interview. Dr. 'Williams stressed the following points in the interview: 1, The Board of ftegents is currently studying the problem of integration. It is being kept informed of all applications by negroes. However, the 3oard has not yet acted. It will not meet again until September. 2, If integration is decided upon, it will probably begin with highly qualified graduate students, to accustom the campus to integration and to avoid dfficulties of the kind of the Lucy case. 3, No action is possible until 1957> due to the fact that the Board will not meet again until September, If the Board were to act on integration for one year from now, it would be at least two years until undergraduates could be taken. l_u The expense of attending the UH would be greater than attending Tuskegee Institute, even if the student could live at home. However, working part-time might offset that factor, 3>, The students were advised to seek admission to the Univ. of Texas, "which has a School of Architecture and is integrated on a limited scale. Mr. Stevenson's average at Tuskeegee, according to his own statement is a "C", and Mr. West a "B". Both students were assured that the University was sympathetic to their problem, but that nothing could be done until the Board of Regents ruled. It was pointed out to them that this was not the type of school which simply said that they mil never have negroes, that rather the UH was studying the program carefully and deliberately to come up with the best solution. ■ ,l^A 2^6* yL A~<~~ At~«J-~. ^/ *-*"* ff I /__/_/• _•/___* At ^At**£ <4a~*A A Aze*++«~*+~-s, 0
