Slaveholding and Judicial Opinions of William Gaston

John Mikhail

Last month I sent a letter to Georgetown University President Jack DeGioia about the slaveholding and judicial opinions of William Gaston, Georgetown's first student and the man for whom Gaston Hall is named. Its aim is to clarify the record and raise awareness about Gaston’s ties to slavery. The letter is now publicly available here, and a related story in The Hoya, Georgetown's main student-run newspaper, can be found here.
