Letter from CUNY Chancellor Albert Bowker to Hon. Thomas R. Jones

This is the third letter sent on February 12, 1968 from Chancellor Albert Bowker in regards to his absence at the February 10 meeting of community leaders and members at Decatur JHS. Addressed to Hon. Thomas R. Jones, chairman of the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Committee, this letter informs Jones that he has received a comprehensive report from his staff and further reiterates Bowker's commitment to "unified efforts" for Community College No. 7's creation. Bowker had been previously invited to the meeting by community leader, Walter Pinkston, who had called for greater community involvement in the formation of Medgar Evers College.
