- In this May 17, 1963 letter to the Catherine Yalor, dean of students at Woman's College of The University of North Carolina (WCUNC), Longdon condemns the "harassing of local businessmen" by Women's College students and notes their "determination to destroy our way of life". Longdon also inquires as to who might have "sold this philosophy" to the students, asks who at the university condones such behavior, and concludes that it must be a "Communist action". WCUNC's Student Government Association (SGA) had recently endorsed a "selectove buying campaign" against several segargated businesses on Tate Street adjacent to the WCUNC campus. Longdon also sent a critical letter to SGA president Anne Prince.
