Loyola Law's first black graduate, Norman Francis, honored

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The retiring president of Xavier University is being honored by Loyola University.

Norman Francis will receive the St. Ives Award from the Loyola College of Law Alumni Association next month.

The award is presented annually to Loyola alumni who have volunteered services to the College of Law or the university.

Francis was the first African-American to graduate from Loyola's College of Law in the 1950s.

The 83-year-old Francis has been president of Xavier since 1968. He is to retire in June.
