Interview with Dr. Robert Ellis
QUESTION 2
INTERVIEWER:

COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT IT WAS THAT, THAT JUST TO FINISH THE HISTORY THEN, WHAT YOUR RESPONSE WAS TO MR. MEREDITH. O—ON ADVICE OF COURSE.

Dr. Robert Ellis:

I'm not, uh, I don't recall the precise uh, words of the uh, uh response to Mere—to Mr. Meredith. Essentially uh, it brought about some delay. Uh, we collected, uh, as I recall it, uh, the entire application for admission and then denied the application. It was denied on the basis of um, an attempt to transfer from an institution that was not at that time accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
