"Negro Physicist to Acquire Disputed Brighton
Property," Rochester Times-Union, 8/30/1960.
Story in Rochester Democrat-Chronicle, 8/30/1960, 5 families in the neighborhood contributed to a fund to buy the house out from under the physicist's offer with $500 more. Other families met with the black family to pledge support, though.
