Letter from Samuel B. Gould to John H. Hughes

In this letter to New York State Senator Hughes, SUNY Chancellor Gould describes the new SUNY SEEK Program. Gould had shown copies to CUNY’s Chancellor Bowker and Julius Edelstein, CUNY’s “Coordinator of Urban Studies,” who had forwarded the letter to Dean Leslie Berger. Gould describes the launch of SUNY SEEK at Buffalo College in 1967-68 with $500,000 in state funding and the program’s rapid expansion in various forms across SUNY in 1968-69 with $2 million in state funding.
