Hunter College Sued; Lawyer Charges Bias
Paul B. Zuber, a lawyer, has filed suit against Hunter College, claiming that its elementary school discriminated against his own child and other Negro applicants.
Hunter College Elementary School accepts only "intellectually gifted" children, and all its applicants must live in certain areas of New York. Zuber claims that the "defendants have so constructed the attendance area line for applicants as to exclude areas . . . where Negroes lived."
Denying the charges, Dr. Louis T. Camp, principal of the elementary school, emphasized that "we have a number of Negro children attending the school and everyone within the lines is eligible for admission."
