Effective fall 1969 I will become Chairman of the Department of Physics at Grambling College, a four-year liberal arts college located in northern Louisiana. Enrollment is approximately 4000; the student body is predominantly Negro.

A concerted effort is being made at Grambling to develop a science curriculum consonant with the demands of our technological age. An intensive recruitment program is being launched throughout Louisiana to identify students offering good potential for such a curriculum. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible for even the most gifted of these students to attend college without scholarship funds to cover living expenses as well as tuition. The cost of room, board, and tuition for a Louisiana resident is $860 per academic year, or a total of $3440 for a four-year scholarship.
