With this initial issue of THE RACE RELA-
TIONS LAW SURVEY, the Vanderbilt University
School of Law resumes its public service function
in the law reporting field. When the Race Rela-
tions Law Reporter was discontinued nearly a
year ago, the promise was made to restore this
service in its original or some modified form if
a source of financing should become available.
Thanks to a grant from the Ford Foundation, we
are iow able to redeem that pledge.
In the Survey, we shall again endeavor to re-
port objectively all legal developments in which
the factor of race is directly involved. The ma-
terial will consist mainly of summaries of court
decisions, legislative enactments, executive orders,
and administrative agency rulings, on the national,
state and local levels. Because of budgetary limita-
tions, the full texts of the opinions, statutes, orders
and rulings will not be printed; but citations to
published sources of these materials will be given
whenever available, and copies of unpublished
items may be ordered from the Survey for twenty
cents per page. In later issues, analytical discus-
sions of legal developments and pending legal
problems in the field of race relations will be
occasionally included. Publication will be on a
bi-monthly basis. .
As a means of bridging the gap between the Re-
porter and the Survey, this first issue is devoted
entirely to significant decisions handed down by
federal and state courts during 1968. It has not
been possible, of course, to discover and print all
of such relevant cases in the brief preparatory
period which has been available, and so others
will appear in the second issue, as will references

to some of the significant 1968 legislative enact-
inents and administrative rulings regarding race
relations matters. We earnestly solicit the assist-
ance of our readers in obtaining copies of or refer-
ences to materials which are appropriate for treat-
ment in future issues of the Survey. We shall be
most grateful to receive individual notices of such
items and to be placed on the mailing lists of ad-
ministrative commissions, clerks of courts, legisla-
tive agencies, civil rights organizations and any
other public or private instrumentalities which are
concerned with developments in the area of race
During the first year, the Survey will be sent
free of charge to anyone who requests it, as long as
our supply of copies lasts. Volume I, Number 1,
is being mailed to all who were subscribers to
Volume 12 of the Race Relations Law Reporter, to
the public libraries of cities with a population of
50,000 or more, to a selected list of college and
university libraries, to the offices of state and local
human relations commissions, and to any indi-
viduals who have requested to be placed on the
mailing list.
All of us in the Law School are very much
pleased to be able to continue to render what we
conceive to be a beneficial service in this extreme-
ly significant field of the law. We trust that you
will find it useful.
