Biographical Note

Virgil T. Blossom (1907-1965) was born in Brookfield, Missouri. He attended Missouri Valley College at Marshall on an athletic scholarship, majoring in education, completing his degree in 1930. After earning a Master of Science degree from the University of Arkansas and taking classes at Northwestern University in Chicago, he started teaching and coaching athletics in the high school at Fayetteville, Arkansas, where he married Clarrene Tribble in 1934. In 1935 he went to Okmulgee, Oklahoma, as teacher and athletic director, then returned to Fayetteville High School three years later as principal. In 1942 he became Superintendent of Schools in Fayetteville. In 1953 he become Superintendent of Schools in Little Rock. Shortly after the Supreme Court found segregation to be unconstitutional, Blossom began working on a plan to integrate Little Rock's public schools. After an unsuccessful court challenge, Little Rock's plan was put into operation in the fall of 1957.

Scope and Content Note

Papers pertaining to Virgil T. Blossom's career as Superintendent of the Little Rock Public Schools, 1953-1958, especially his role in the desegregation crisis in 1957-58.

The papers pertain to the Central High crisis. Blossom became a central figure in the controversy, and he was removed as superintendent in November 1958. He wrote an account of the crisis, published as a series of articles, "The Untold Story of Little Rock," in Saturday Evening Post (May 23 - June 27, 1959) and then as a book, It Has Happened Here. After a short stay in New York, Blossom went to San Antonio, Texas, to continue his career in education.

series 2: Legal Papers,

1954-1960

Boxes 3-5

Apparently Blossom had begun to sort some of the papers in the series, perhaps in preparing to write the articles and book he published on the Little Rock crisis, and for a visual presentation on the subject (see Series 5). His arrangement of these materials stands at the beginning of Series 2 as General Files on Integration.

Other general legal files were arranged by alphabetically by subject, and more specific files were divided according to legal jurisdiction: state government, District Court, Chancery Court, Court of Appeals, and U.S. Supreme Court.

Restriction. Some legal papers pertain to suspensions or expulsions of pupils from Central High for racial incidents. Between September 1957 and Feb 1958, 184 pupils were suspended. Many of these students are well known because of radio broadcasts or newspaper reports. The records, however, are restricted according to the student records policy of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (U. S. Code). Researchers desiring access to the material should consult with the Head of Special Collections.

series 3: Opinion Mail,

1957-1958

Boxes 6-11

This series represents world-wide response to the Little Rock Central High integration crisis. Many items were sent by special mail, often marked "personal" or "confidential." Some correspondence was addressed to "school board" or "Central High principal;" many were forwarded to Virgil Blossom. A few individuals wrote repeatedly in reaction to events. Some envelopes contained only printed matter, sometimes with handwritten comments. The envelopes frequently had no return addresses, and often bore rubber-stamped slogans or stickers such as "Remember Little Rock," "Brotherhood by Bayonet!" or "I do not trade with those who advertise in the ARKANSAS GAZETTE!" Samples bearing such slogans and stickers were kept in the collection; most other envelopes were discarded.

Letters were usually in response to particular events or persons: following desegregation of Central High in the fall of 1957, white students walked out; persecution of the "Little Rock nine" led to the suspension or expulsion of several students; one of the "nine" who retaliated against the whites was expelled in February 1958. Articles about Little Rock in the national press provoked mail, as did the commencement exercises in June 1958 when Ernest Greene received his diploma. Some correspondents sent contributions to a campaign to fund a private, all-white school. Some letters pertained to the closing of the Little Rock public schools. Some reacted to an incident when Blossom reportedly threw two reporters out of his office.

Apparently Blossom had begun to sort the opinion mail into "for" and "against" categories. His arrangement, ordered chronologically, stands at the beginning of Series 3. Other mail received was sorted only chronologically. Notes clipped to the papers were left in place. (Note: Files arranged by Blossom in Series 2, Legal Papers, also contain opinion mail.)

1955-1958

Boxes 15-18

This series includes materials that were not easily included elsewhere: information about Central High in general, material on education in general, segregationist materials, and a visual presentation concerning the Central High desegregation crisis.

The visual presentation is made of sixty "plates," each with a sheet of information, generally in the form of a list or outline. Handwritten and typed notes, apparently for this visual presentation, are in box 3, folder 4, of Series 2, Legal Papers. A spliced strip of slide film was made of the plates; the film is in Special Collections slide storage.

Also included here is a recording of two "pre-broadcast" interviews of Sammie Dean Parker. She was interviewed by Amis Guthridge, the program moderated by Wesley Pruden. Parker's parents also answered some questions. This recording was apparently in preparation for her appearance on television on March 4, 1958, the broadcast sponsored by the Freedom Fund for Little Rock.

Boxes 19-32

This series includes whole newspapers and bound newspapers as well as clippings. Included are complete runs of school newspapers from the three Little Rock high schools: Central, Hall, and Horace Mann. Broadsides have also been included in this series.

The clippings are arranged chronologically in three groups: personal clippings, clippings concerning education, and clippings concerning integration and civil rights. Note that the last group, by far the largest, includes more than just the Little Rock crisis. (Note: Files arranged by Blossom in Series 2, Legal Papers, also contain clippings.)
