Information about segregated housing was requested by the Manager of the University of Minnesota’s Student Union in 1939. The information came from a survey of universities secretly undertaken by heads of students unions. It revealed that no segregated housing existed in the universities surveyed. Though segregated student housing had been outlawed by President Guy Stanton Ford, some administrators continued to seek ways to keep dormitories only for whites. The inquiry from the University of Minnesota suggests the question was still alive.
