25 years ago: Haskell assigned interim president as Gipp sent to Washington

October 7, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 7, 1988:

The federal Bureau of Indian Affairs was sending Haskell Indian Junior College President Gerald Gipp to its Washington, D.C., office during a review of an investigative report on conflict-of-interest charges. The bureau was planning to send Van Peters, a BIA administrator, to serve as Haskell's acting president in the interim. Gipp was accused by Haskell instructor Don Bread of improperly and indirectly pressuring him to change the grade Bread had given Gipp's daughter while she was at the school the previous year, and then having the grade changed when Bread had refused to do so.
