    Non-defining relative clause, comma
    The genesis of, and inspiration for, Wheelock’s Latin was the 1946 G.I. Education bill which granted World War II Veterans a college education upon their return from service.
    I think there should be a comma before "which" because the clause in red is a non-defining relative clause. Am I right?
