The Board of Regents

Letter from Avery to Sarka Hrbkova on termination of Czech Language Program


In this May 13,1919 letter Chancellor Avery notifies Šárka Hrbková of the Board of Regents decision to cancel the Slavic Department and her termination from the University. Scandinavian and Hebrew language instruction also fell victim to the purge of language instruction at this time. Low enrolment numbers were cited as the reason for this change in curriculum.
