Interview with Craig Rains
QUESTION 18
INTERVIEWER:

WERE YOU HARRASSED YOURSELF BY OTHER STUDENTS WHO DIDN'T APPRECIATE YOUR MORE MODERATE POSITION?

Craig Rains:

I was harassed to some point, on occasion. I was interviewed back in '58 on national television, and, there were two segregationists, two moderates and two liberal students-. Six students were interviewed. And I was one of the moderates. The segregationists wouldn't even speak to me, because I wasn't a segregationist. When I invited Ernest Green, the only black senior, to join me for lunch, I got some verbal abuse from some students for doing that. But other than that, that was it.
