Clarification on: https://www.mndaily.com/article/2019/05/s-editorial-reviewing-the-task-force-report

Clarification: Many of our claims rely on Hyman Berman’s “Political Antisemitism in Minnesota during the Great Depression.” Citation 38 in this article relies on letters between Nicholson and Chase. As stated in the editorial, we are not historians. The above findings reflect only our interpretation of the report. We want to acknowledge that Chase was a problematic character in the University's history, but, based on the letters, it’s unclear that his character substantiates claims made against Nicholson. This letter does not substantiate claims in Hyman’s citation, which were used for the task force report. The editorial does not reflect the task force’s immense amount of detailed work and the problematic history of the University. Instead, it only offers to small details we found uncorroborated in the report.

Clarification: Planned Parenthood in St. Paul is the closest clinic that provides abortions to the University of Minnesota's St. Paul campus. Whole Woman's Health of the Twin Cities is the closest clinic that provides abortions to the Minneapolis campus.

Editor’s note: there is a substantial correction for this article. We are choosing to leave the original body of text for the sake of transparency – not as an endorsement of the inaccuracies. The correction can be found at the bottom of this page. 

Page 52: The original article incorrectly stated that Nicholson was "incensed" at Elmer Austin Benson's appointment to the University's Board of Regents. According to the task force report and Berman's article, Nicholson was "incensed" at George B. Leonard, a Jewish Minnesotan, being appoint to the Board of Regents. 

The original article also incorrectly interpreted the citation used to support Nicholson being "incensed" by Leonard's appointment to the Board. Hyman Berman, a historian, came to the conclusion that Nicholson was “incensed” by Leonard’s appointment based on separate archives, according to citation 38 of Berman’s article titled “Political Antisemitism in Minnesota during the Great Depression.” Berman's article is used in citation 119 of the task force report. The original editorial only took citation 118 into account.

Page 105: While several African American women lived in the dorms, that does not mean that segregation did not take place in dorms at the University of Minnesota. The atmosphere around African American women in the dorms was not welcoming. 

Page 49: The original article incorrectly states that students' obstacles to employment were a separate matter from their studies at the University. Warning Jewish women about possible obstacles to being employed was related to their time as students at the University, because it related to their decisions to continue studying or not.

Page 51: The original article incorrectly states that the task force report did not include a citation for the "political alliance" described between Dean Nicholson and Ray Chase. The “political alliance” between Nicholson and Chase is cited in citations 111,  112 and 113 of the report. Citation 114 is contextually related to the situation and was not the only citation provided for the “political alliance” described in the task force report.

Correction on https://www.mndaily.com/article/2019/04/o-venkata-en-lan-2019

Correction: A previous version of the article misstated the impact long hours on computers have on student health. Many hours working on a computer did not contribute to more frequent seizures in epileptic students.
