Show full item record

Abstract: This interview was conducted as part of the College of William and Mary Oral History Project. John Pollard, Jr. arrived at William and Mary as a freshman in 1919, followed two years later by his father, John Garland Pollard, who had been attorney-general and later was governor of Virginia from 1930 to 1934. Garland, Jr., went on to Harvard and earned a doctorate in economics, and was a member of the college's Board of Visitors from 1948 to 1956. Mr. Pollard is the only member of the 1951 Board of Visitors who agreed to be interviewed; thus his comments on the 1951 athletic scandal are most valuable.
