Description: This editorial, written by the staff of the Guilford College Literary Society and published in their periodical, The Tad, in the Spring of 1959 questioned the policies of the College with respect to the issue of integration. These students offered multiple examples of points when the issue of integration had been broached in the past and had eventually been swept under the rug. In this piece the staff of The Tad, while recognizing that they did not speak for the whole campus community, made the statement that for Guilford College to maintain its reputation as a “…liberal-minded Christian college, we must take a definite, clear stand in favor of accepting any qualified student ... regardless of his or her race, creed, of religion.” Guilford College did not adopt a policy of complete integration until 1962. Also included are the cover and table of content.
