In her letter to Charlotte Crump, Dean of Women Anne Blitz argues that the essay “This Free North,” which appeared in the 1937 Literary Supplement of the Minnesota Daily, contained “misstatements” and she questioned the veracity of Crump’s accounts of campus life. Crump described the experience of being an African American student on the campus. In fact, Crump’s description of housing and African American students is verified through other sources.
