Title

Report, Segregation in the Field of Public and Private Law [excerpt]

Description

This is the only known copy of the legal analysis that was used to justify the desegregation of Tulane University.

In 1959, Joseph M. Jones, president of the Tulane Board of Administrators, approached a Tulane law student, David Campbell, and asked him to research all aspects of desegregation as they applied to higher education. Campbell delivered his report on September 4, 1959.

The sixty-page report covered a wide swath of research into desegregation law, including areas to which it applied (jury cases, housing, the right to vote, restrictive covenants, labor unions, etc.), the Fourteenth Amendment, whether Tulane University was a private or public corporation, and laws and cases pertaining to Tulane. Campbell went on to graduate first in his class from Tulane Law School and earn a doctorate in law from Oxford University.

Read the entire report through the Tulane University Digital Library.
