In Memoriam: Gus T. Ridgel, 1925-2020

Dr. Ridgel was a member of Concerned Student 1950, the first group of African-American students admitted to the University of Missouri. He was admitted to the graduate program in economics in 1950 after civil rights groups won a court ruling desegregating the university. He earned a master’s degree a year later.
