Sept 11, 1912 Mrs Mary C B Munford, 503 East Grace Street, Richmond, Va.
My dear Mrs. Munford: I am very sorry I missed seeing you in Richmond on Monday. You ask me to write particularly about the value of the Tulane-Newcomb connection. First, let me say again that the case here may be somewhat peculiar and might not apply elsewhere. Secondly, let me say that theoretically one would think that the advantage of such connection would be very great on both sides. Now practically, the relation between Tulane and Newcomb during the two years in which I have been a member of the Board have been the cause of more disagreeable squabbling than any other feature or business of the University. There has been constant disagreement as the the meaning of certain terms in the Newcomb gift, and this disagreement continues at the present moment. It would not surprise me if at some day it were taken into the courts. Furthermore there is more or less of jealousy and dissatisfaction in the arrangement of the time and salary whenever a professor is employed jointly by the two colleges.
