Warren Grissom, an undergraduate student, was invited by Professor Benjamin Lippincott in 1937 to present a report to the American Federation of Teachers, Local 44, which had an on-campus chapter, on the history of segregated student housing at the University of Minnesota. The report is signed by the members of the Interracial Committee, the Negro Student Council, which was formed in 1937, and the Progressive Party, as well as the African American Greek Letter fraternity and sorority.
