Benjamin N. Moore

Benjamin N. Moore was Co-Chairman of the Citizens’ Committee during the 1942 crisis over segregated student housing at the University of Minnesota. Though President Coffey promised Moore and Citizens’ Committee Chairman R. Augustine Skinner that the University would integrate the International House in 1942, the President’s staff was soon working to undermine the integration of all other student housing on campus.
