And One Was a Priest

This chapter describes the “integration crisis” at Sewanee during the 1952–53 academic year. The controversy was given national publicity, personal and institutional reputations were tarnished, and eight members of the School of Theology faculty, including the dean, resigned their positions. The controversy can be traced back to the fall of 1950, just a few weeks after Gray had started seminary. It began in Jacksonville, Florida, on October 3, 1950, when the Executive Council of the Diocese of Florida met and “the question was raised as to the possibility of securing Negro Clergy to fill existing vacancies in the diocese”.
