Excluding the ‘untouchables’

Published on April6, 2011

Re the clubs: In 1948 “untouchables,” 8 percent of the junior class, I think, met as a group in one of the lecture rooms. I looked around and was not surprised that we had been excluded. But would it have hurt the acceptable people very much to have let us in?
