Poll for Guilford College student body position on integration demonstrations

Description: This survey was used in 1963 to poll the student body at Guilford College in order to "clarify its position concerning nine member students who participated in integration demonstrations this past week." Beth Taylor was one of the nine students referenced in this statement. The statement to be voted on was whether the student body neither supported nor condemned their fellow classmates, but rather left the responsibility of their actions to the individual students who chose to participate. Voting yes meant that a student agreed that the actions by fellow classmates were not the sentiments of the entire student body of the College. This poll helps to document the campus climate to which these nine student protestors returned.
