Initial Legal Petitions Filed

The Deed of Trust: Deep Springs has filed an initial petition along with supporting documents asking the court in Inyo County California to construe or modify the college’s deed of trust to permit coeducation. You may download the deed of trust filings using the links below.

The Withrow Endowments: Many alumni are aware that when alumnus Jim Withrow (DS’27) donated endowment funds to the college, he restricted them to carrying out the purpose indicated in the Deed of Trust. These endowed funds represent approximately 7% of our total endowment. Deep Springs has also petitioned the court to find that the potential admission of women to Deep Springs would not violate the terms of Withrow’s restrictions.
