Biracial public education study, 1953-1954. The study of biracial public education in the South was initiated by the Fund for the Advancement of Education in the late spring of 1953. Its aim was to provide an objective and comprehensive description of the South's "separate but equal" education system. It was thought at the time that study's findings would be available after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the separate but equal issue for use of the South's white leadership. Actually, however, the first publication from the study came out four days before the Court handed down its Brown decision. Altogether, five books and various other mateirals resulted from the study. Hammer was the research director for the study. The study leader was Harry Ashmore, editor of the Arkansas Gazette in Little Rock. The project was widely known as the "Ashmore Project." #04527, Series: "Addition of August 1993 (Acc. 93117)." Folder 359
