Board of Regents Who Supported Segregation

The 1935 Board of Regents who supported segregation and segregated housing on campus. The caption beneath this image from the 1935 Gopher yearbook refers to an important part of student life in the 1930s, to be encountered in the essay on student activism: mandatory drills for male students.

The caption is also remarkably political. It underlines the struggle for power between the Governor and the administration of the University over the appointment of regents, and recognized that the University of Minnesota was a key arena in political life.
