    “Harrison Wilson & UK”

    It is nice that UK is giving Mr. Wilson an honorary doctorate after denying him admission because of race in the 1940s. It does seem, however, that he has been very successful without the aid of UK. Instead, KSU merits plaudits for helping him to progress despite a racist society. Around the same time, the U. of Md. Law School denied admission to a honors student who became the first black U S Supreme Court Justice. He asked UM not to name its new Law Library after him. Sometimes chickens come home to roost in the oddest ways.
