Newspaper Articles

In the fall of 1948 Mr. Earl C. Davis, Centre College's Dean of Admissions, reached out Attorney General A. E. Funk about admitting Nigerian students to Centre College under the Day Law. Unbeknownst to Davis, by writing the Attorney General about this issue, he made it public and therefore open to general knowledge. Local newspapers in Danville and Louisville quickly found out about the issue and published articles, editorials, and letters to the editor. These articles caught the notice of a number of alumni, two of whom wrote Pres. Groves. Their letters can be found in this exhibit.
