Memo from President Kemeny to Al Richard


Memo from President Kemeny to Al Richard


President Kemeny writes the chairman of the Committee on the Handicapped to grant permission for the committee to continue for a year longer than originally planned on a stand-by basis, as suggested in the committee's three-year report. This memo shows the administration's acknowledgment of a need to address issues of accessibility long after the initial responses to new federal legislation, foreshadowing the establishment of the Section 504 Committee on the Handicapped five years later.
