Presidents' office records relating to Louisville Municipal College, 1924, 1954. Correspondence between the presidents of the University of Louisville and the deans of the Louisville Municipal College (LMC), the black, undergraduate division of the university. The records document the origins, operation, and closing of the college (1931-1951). Subjects include the growth of African American political power in Louisville during the 1920s; the demise of Simmons University; the workings of the Kentucky Day Law (1904); the relationship between the college and the African American community it served; the integration of the University of Louisville in 1951; and the dispersal of the tenured members of the LMC faculty when the college closed. The records reflect the careers of the university presidents and LMC deans during this period.
University records more than 25 years old are generally open; however, some records may be restricted by statute or federal law.
