  • Text: October 3 1966 Dear Mayor Allen, Iam writing simply to say that Iam proud to have you as Mayor of our city. Ihave always supported you, but along with many others, I don't think I realized what kind of man you were until our recent ''riots''. I believe that you really care about Atlanta ina very personal way. The main reason for my writing this though is because of your stand on our "political race'' held last week. Many leaders must have shared your view that it was ''deplorable"', yet how many said so? Only you and Congressman Weltner, who has given up a lot for his conviction. Again, thank you for being a "strong" leader and for caring about our great city. Sincerely, eo { } . " = ? (_! rs Ao hy f Sy WO Ck Mrs. Guy Q. LeGrand

SECRETARY-TREASURER 705 broad st. and 601 shorter ave. rome, georgia September 30,1966 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: T agree with you that Lester Maddox is not qualified to serve as Governor of Georgia. However, I was astounded to hear you attack him with ridicule in a press conference last night. Mr. Maddox thrives on ridicule. He has gained a great deal of support from misguided sympathy and continued sarcastic attacks on him will serve only to increase his support. Please let us defeat Mr. Maddox on other grounds. We do not believe he is capable or qualified and should have no hesitation in saying so but let us not make a martyr of him since such action will only insure his victory in the general election.

Box #1 Crown Point, Indiana 46307 September 30, 1966 Honorable liayor Allen City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Mayor: Last night, Thursday, I saw you on the news on NBC-TV in Chicago. It was good to hear you speak out, unequivocally, concerning the nomination of Lester l.addox. I felt saddened at his nomination: to think thet so many persons would gravitate toward a man who stands for what he professes to stand! Also, I thought it was brave of you to attempt to stop the recent riots in Atlanta by appearing on the scene and publicly exposing yourself to extreme danger by appealing to the crowd from atop a car. I am certain there are many many more persons in this country who feel as 1 do, but who do not write and say so. Keep trying to inject reason and sanity into the situation in Georgia. Sincerely, Deane l.alaker

Dear Mayor Allen; Here I thought I could write - and I am a master of the written word - but your statement on Lester Maddox this morning was worded better than I could have worded it. It was.a masterpiece! Not only was it aptly put, but courageous. All the world rallies to a man of courage... your star is ascending so rapidly that you are on your way to being the most respected living Georgian. My program (Why in the World?) followed yours on WAIT last year. . . if I had it now, the number of my carry-over viewers would be greater by far.

So, I don't think that anybody could say I am prejudiced either way. Your statement regarding Lester Maddox was a wonderful statement. It is really a great thing to have the leader of the city in which you live to stand up and say what he thinks instead of, as so many of our political people have to do, mak- ing weak, vacillating statements.

I have been able to view your activities on nationwide television on other oecasions--e.g., the Atlanta riots. From all indications I perceived you as a man who was honestly trying to do the best job he could. I also pereeived you as a fair person who was willing to try to understand the views of others and to do something about the plight of the slum-dwellers--be they Negro or White. In short, I have been very impressed with what I have seen of your apparent attitude and action in times of crises and controversy. I am quite sure it is very hard on you at times to stand in the face of bigotry and hatred, but I wanted you to know that at least one person aeross the country wants to give you some reinforeement and to urge you to eontinue in your attempts to make Atlanta, and consequently America, a better place for a human being to live in. Although I will most likely never have a ehanee to vote for you, I hope my eneouragement for your stands and actions eoneerning the eivil rights issues and this Maddox "tragedy" will act as a positive influence for your future behavior. Atlanta, and the nation, ean be proud of you. Sineerely, Mark L. Knapp, Ph.D. Speech Communication Center @ SERVICE AND RESEARCH IN THE USES OF SPEECH COMMUNICATION BY INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS

ROBINSON TELEPHONE 534-7341 ROBERT 8. THOMPSON B.CARL BUICE SAM 5S. HARBEN, JR. October 3, 1966 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: How refreshing it was to read your statement on the results of the election September 28th.! Every word of it was true and I think you analyzed the situation exactly. You are to be commended for having the courage to say it. The pity is that others in high official position in our State and National government are silent in the presence of a possible catastrophe facing Georgia. As a Georgian I feel ashamed before the world because of what happened. As a lawyer, I shudder with overwhelming dismay at the thought that the nominee of the Democratic party might have an opportunity to appointment more than one-half of the members of the Georgia Supreme Court. Four of the seven members of the Court are more than 72 years of age, one is 75. Even the three youngest members are 62, 60 and 57 years of age respectively. Every Georgian will need to search his own conscience between now and the General Election. As for me, if I must embrace Maddox to save the Democratic party, it is not worth saving in Georgia. I hope I shall have the pleasure of meeting you sometime. Sincerely yours, f Guage Emory F. Robinson EFR/gm

I have never before felt such horrified disbelief coupled with such profaund sadness. The contest be- tween Maddox and Calloway is a contest between an insane racist and a sahe racist; that's all. Maybe I'll go fishing on election day, too, I've onLy lived in Atlanta for two years, but I think you've been doing a wonderful job as mayor, and I've been particularly delighted with your thoughtful and enlightened attitude towards racial matters. When you and other guests sang "We Shall Overcome" at the testimonial dinner for Martin Iuther King, jr. after he won the Nobel Prize, I remember think- ing how few northern mayors, let alone southern ones, would have the guts to do something like that, i was Similarly impressed with the thoughtful and yet firm manner in which you handled the recent racial disturbances in Atlanta, I'm certain that your intelligent and understanding outlook on racial matters will probably get you into many scraps with our next governor, be it Maddox or Calloway, and I, just want you to know that here are two more Georgians -— my wife - who will be behind you one hundred per cent.

  • Text: 45 Maple Avenue Cambridge, Mass. 02139 September 29,.1966 The Honorable Ivan Allen Mayor of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Sts _ I have been a great admirer of yours since you defeated Maddox for mayor in--it was 1962 wasn't it?--and on throuch your recent encounter with Stokely Carmichael. But never have I admired you more than when I heard your intense, sincere, perfectly .articu- lated&tatement on the defeat of Ellis Arnall in yesterday's primary run-off. You are the only person who has given any compensation for the horror and dismay I have felt since discovering that Lester Maddox actually defeated Ellis Arnall. I say it only to your credit, that the statement you made today should have been made by Mr. Arnall. I am a resident of Georgia (Macon), and it is as such that I write to encourage you to offer yourself as a write-in candidate for Governor, and to work vigorously from now until’ November for that office. I wrote Mr. Arnall last night (upon hearing the election returns) surcesting the same to him. But on the news tonight I saw him congradulate Maddox with the statement, "The victory is yours," and this rather dampens one's enthusiasm. It is to you that people like me now look (and I still remain convinced that there are more of us than this election indicates). I expect that Maddox will take a lot of Callaway's vote; and would a victory by you on November 8 be any more surprising than Maddox's yesterday? I am sure that many more moderates and liberals--as well as people who are simply sane-- will get out and vote, after this catastrophe, especially if they could vote for you. For many like myself it is a real problem whether to vote for Callaway or not to vote at all. I am a graduate student at Harvard; if there is anything I can do for you, or for even reasonable politics in Georgia, please let me know. And again, let me beg you to offer yourself as a write-in candidate for Governor. Sincerely yours, é dward M. Moore
