A letter from 1969.

The American creed, one that Yale has proudly espoused, holds that an American should be judged as an individual and not as a member of a group. To me it seems axiomatic that a system which ignores this creed and introduces the factor of race in the selection of students for a professional school is inherently malignant, no matter how high-minded the purpose nor how benign the motives of those making the selection.

It seems to me that the same should be said about any competitive area - not only "the selection of students for a professional school". And not only about "the factor of race".
