Dean of Women Anne Blitz replied to Dean Lucy Slowe’s inquiry about her friend’s daughter who would be attending the University of Minnesota in 1936. Dean Blitz explained that there was no campus housing for Negro students. Blitz suggests it is for economic reasons since white students would not stay in dormitories.
