UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES URBANA OFFICE OF THE DEAN December 2, 1913. Mrs. Mary C. B. Munford, 503 E. Grace St., Richmond, Va. My dear Mrs. Munford: I have your letter of November 21st and the accompanying pamphlet, for both of which please accept my thanks. I fear I shall not be able to be of much assistance to you in securing a letter from President Lowell since I know him only very slightly and in a rather formal way. Possibly a letter from Dean Charles H. Haskins of the Graduate School of Harvard University would be especially helpful. He was for many years a leading member of the faculty of the University of Wisconsin, and has had opportunity during the last ten years at Harvard to observe the workings of the system of coordinate education as contrasted with co-education in a state university. Another man who in a similar way would be able to speak from experience in the same two kinds of institutions is Professor F. J. E. Woodbridge, Dean of the Graduate School of Columbia University, who was head of the department of philosophy in the University of Minnesota. With very cordial good wishes, Sincerely yours, Kendrick Babcock KCB-D
