Abstract/ Summary

Handwritten letter from an alumna of the UMaine Class of 1973, expressing support for the University's actions related to the Wilde-Stein Club and the Alumni Fund's acknowledgement of her donation. Transcription: May 12, 1974 Dear Mr. Mooers: I read recently in the Washington Post of the struggle of University of Maine homosexuals for the right to meet and organize. I would like to convey through you, my sincere congratulations to Chancellor McNeil and the trustees for a courageous stand in the face of the threat of loss of financial support. The whole article pricked my conscience, and enclosed is my contribution. I wish it could be more. Sincerely, Ruth W. Allen
