Lloyd Gaines (1907 hits)

March 19, 1939, police in Missouri received the report of a missing black person, 28-year old Lloyd Gaines. In the 1930s, he was the plaintiff in one of the most important court cases in the U.S. civil rights movement. Gaines was denied admission to the all-white University of Missouri Law School. Gaines sued, and the US Supreme Court ruled in his favor. An additional lawsuit was planned, but Gaines disappeared. To this day, his fate is unknown.
