Boyd Lee Spahr, Appold, and Zug Attempt to Abolish Coeducation in 1923

Letter
Date: 
August 9, 1923

In a letter dated August 9, 1923, President Morgan wrote to Reverend John R. Edwards, warning him that three prominent Dickinsonians are attempting to abolish coeducation at Dickinson College. Morgan explained, "A few of the trustees have not been friendly to co-education for a good many years, and raised the question at commencement... Since commencement, however, it has developed that two or three, Boyd Lee Spahr, Esq., of Philadelphia, being their spokesman, Mr. Appold of Baltimore and Mr. Zug of Philadelphia consenting, have stated their wish to have women removed from the college altogether." Morgan asked Edwards if he would be willing to come down to Carlisle so they could further discuss this matter with Bishop MdDowell.
