Carl Murphy, a black graduate from Harvard, applies to the University for a summer course in German.  Hopkins’ President, Frank Johnson Goodnow, makes an official statement explaining the decision to deny Murphy’s admission, citing Maryland’s traditional segregationist practices.  President Goodnow says Maryland had always provided for separate institutions for the “white and the colored.”  Carl Murphy goes on to become the noted publisher of the Afro American newspapers and a civil rights leader of the early Twentieth century.
