J. L. LIVERS CHARLOTTESVILLE VIRGINIA May 2nd 1918. Mrs. Mary-C. B. Munford, 503 E. Grace St. Richmond, Va. My dear Mrs. Munford:- I am sure you will be surprised to hear that they are building the Co-Ordinate College on the site selected by Miss Virginia McKennie and the writer. Seven buildings are now being completed on the old athletic field just Southwest of Dawson's Row and Northeast of the Observatory. These buildings will be used by the Government for the training of young men for automobile drivers, and will cost about fifty-five thousand dollars. While it may look foolish I am in hopes that this war will certainly end by the time the Legislature convenes in 1920 and I feel that it will be just the thing for the women of Virginia to ask the State Legislature to establish a Co-Ordinate College and to use the buildings erected and owned by the State, and which will, no doubt, at that time be unoccupied. While these buildings are frame, along the construction lines of the Camp Lee buildings, still I feel sure that it is a beautiful location to occupy and the grounds and buildings could be so improved as to be very attractive indeed for temporary quarters, until such time as permanent headquarters could be erected. The buildings will be in capacity to provide for 600 men. This includes sleeping as well as dining facilities for them and I hope the proposition will work out as suggested above. Hoping that this will find you quite well, and with kind regards, I remain, Yours very truly John L. Livers JLL/EB.
