 File — Box: SF046
Scope and Contents This file concerns VMI's response to the report produced by the Educational Commission of Virginia, which undertook a survey of public education in the state. The final report recommended that VMI be closed, a conclusion that sparked a vocal response by VMI and its alumni. The commission is sometimes referred to as the Barton Commission (for the chairman, Robert T. Barton) and the report as the O'Shea report (the director of the survey was M.V. O'Shea of the Univ. of Wisconsin)
