Interview with Harold Engstrom
QUESTION 21
INTERVIEWER:

DO YOU THINK THAT THE SCHOOL COULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING MORE ABOUT THE HARRASSMENT [unintelligible].

Harold Engstrom:

Well, you couldn't—of course, we couldn't have a normal school. But we had to have as close to normal as possible. You couldn't follow every student around with a guard into the—you know, the stories where the male guards were going to the restrooms with the female black students. You couldn't do things like that. And you couldn't sit with them at the cafeteria. There wouldn't be any integration if you did that. So I was proud of what we did, and what we didn't do.** I think if we'd done any more, it would have made it possible for them to shut the integration.
