These are the members of the Board of Regents who supported segregation and segregated housing on campus. The caption beneath this image from the 1935 Gopher yearbook refers to their stand on mandatory military drills for all 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.
