Date: circa August 9, 1949

Author: William Donald Carmichael, Jr.

Biographical/Historical abstract: William Donald Carmichael Jr. (1900-1961) served as acting president of the Consolidated University of North Carolina from 1949 to 1950.

Additional contributor:

Description: This eighteen-page memorandum from W.D. Carmichael, Jr., who served as acting president of the University of North Carolina (UNC) until 1950 to “President Gray” (possibly Gordon Gray, who served as president of the system beginning in 1950) is an assessment of educational opportunities for black students within the UNC system. The memo cites relevant case law about what level of provision was required and details activities and partnerships aimed at compliance. The recommendation was for establishment of more graduate programs at North Carolina College at Durham, the system's black campus and includes a tentative draft for an agreement between UNC and the North Carolina College. Woman's College of the University of North Carolina (now UNCG) was a part of the UNC system.
