Guilford College Faculty
In this minute from March 12, 1969 President Clyde Milner of Guilford College describes a "sincere and polite" letter requesting that Guilford College consider enrolling three black students. The minute reports how the issue was discussed at length and the opinion of the faculty was that the problem of integration was of vast importance but that they were not ready as a group to consider black applicants at that time.When President Milner asked for a show of hands of those who would have no objections to having black students in their classrooms only three did not raise their hands. When asked to vote on the expediency of enrolling blacks at Guilford however, thirteen voted in the affirmative with seventeen voting against the action.
