Description: This letter, dated April 9, 1969, is University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson's response to a March 28 letter from Harry B. Fesperman of Thomasville, NC. Fesperman, father of a UNCH student, had written about his concern over student funds potentially being used to support the striking food service workers at UNCG. In his response, Ferguson assures Fesperman that no student funds were used for this purpose and that “outside influences” were responsible for most of the problems connected with the strike, which took place March 27 - April 2, 1967.
