“Opposes Negro Discrimination”

Alumnus Harold Field writes a letter to the editor, appearing in the Minnesota Daily on April 24, 1942. As a draftee, Field argues that by urging him to sacrifice for democracy, the University administration should also commit itself to the reversal of its policies of racial discrimination.  He responded to campus protests against the creation of the “International House,” which was created in order to provide segregated housing for African American male students.
