Description:

An order handed down by Norman O. Nilsen, Commissioner of Labor, in a housing discrimination case filed by an African American couple, Mrs. Pathina Wiley and Mr. Rowan M. Wiley. The original complaint was filed against Curt-Craft, Brice Mortgage, Home Master Sales, Roach Homes, and Retirement Incorporated, Oregon real estate corporations that refused to sell land to the Wiley's based on their race.
