Description: In this letter, dated May 27, 1963, John E. McMullen, a faculty member at Woman's College of the University of North Carolina (WCUNC) responds to Chancellor Otis Singletary's concerns at receiving a telephone call from a "disturbed father" who claimed McMullen was using class time to espouse his views on integration.
