To Crozer Theological Seminary
27 October 1947
King writes to Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, Pennsylvania, asking for an application and a seminary catalog. Two friends of his father, the brothers Russell Conwell Barbour and J. Pius Barbour, probably encouraged him to apply to Crozer. Crozer president Edwin E. Aubrey had taught Morehouse president Benjamin Mays at the University of Chicago and spoke at Morehouse's baccalaureate in 1945.
Crozer Theological Seminary
After reading and hearing much about your seminary I have become intensely interested in it. I am now a senior at Morehouse College, and I hope to enter some Theological school after graduating.
I would like very much to secure an application blank and also a catalog of your school
Will you please send this material as soon as possible.
