Document Description

Immediately following the Trustees' decision of 28 February 1966 to amend the speaker policy, ten students drafted and signed this letter to officially ask Acting Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson to allow Frank Wilkinson and Herbert Aptheker to speak the following week. Note the words "Exhibit 'A' - p.1" at the bottom. This copy of the letter comes from the papers of McNeill Smith, the attorney representing the students in the ensuing court challenge to the law.
