Corrections

June 29, 1991

The Sun incorrectly reported yesterday that former U.S. Representative Parren J. Mitchell became the first black graduate of the University of Maryland's School of Social Work, because of a court decision striking down a discriminatory admissions policy. In fact, Mr. Mitchell was the first black to attend graduate school at the University of Maryland at College Park, where he received a master's degree in sociology in 1952. The dean of the School of Social Work said yesterday that his school never had a policy of discrimination.
