Items of interest include letters from the U.S. Dept. of Health, Education, and Welfare, Office for Civil Rights, U.S. Attorney General, Boston Police Commissioner, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and School Committee member, Louise Day Hicks. A June 1972 letter from Henry Pottinger of the HEW Office for Civil Rights to Supt. William H. Ohrenberger states that the BPS remains non compliant with Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and thus all applications for federal assistance will be deferred until compliance is reached. A letter from the U.S. attorney General (1974 July) is a reply to Winter stating that his office has no jurisdiction to intervene in the Morgan case.
Letters from both Robert J. DiGrazia, the Boston Police Commissioner and John W. Sears, Commissioner of the Massachusetts Metropolitan District Commission (both 1975) state that the officers will remain posted in the Boston Public Schools until the climate has settled and students are safe. Letters to and from Ruth Batson of the NAACP document the initial dialogue between the NAACP and the School Committee, as the group attenpted to resolve the issue of racial imbalance in the schools. Also of interest is a special report (1975 July) by the Boston Municipal Research Bureau on the costs of desegregation in the Boston Public Schools.
