AbstractArticle outlining events leading to President Dammann's "Principles Versus Prejudices" Address. "...the President of the College, the Reverend Mother Dammann, removed every doubt by replying to the challenge of prejudice in a brilliant, cogent, and convincing address which held her hearers spellbound. To the objectors who feared that Manhattanville's standards and traditions would be lowered, she replied that the prestige of the college was now high than ever before, because their Alma Mater had dared to defy prejudice."
