Correspondence of Walter A. Groves

Walter A. Groves was a prolific letter writer, sending letters to his fellow presidents of colleges in Kentucky and beyond, and former Centre alumni. Many of his letters are inquires into the racial policies of other schools as he worked to determine the best path for Centre's desegregation. 

This exhibit includes pages on correspondence with presidents of prestigious Northeastern colleges, with presidents of Kentucky colleges, and with alumni. Together they form a picture of a man who was working with a loaded issue in a small town in Kentucky. The responses Groves received and the letters he sent in return are included where available.
