  • Text: August 27, 1963 Mr. Richard Lewisohn 663 Fifth Avenue New York 22, New York Dear Richard: Thanks for your nice letter of the 3lst, and I hope you will excuse my slight delay in answering it. I had seen the editorial in the New York Times, and I think it is excellent and very complimentary, Best of luck to you on the next time around, Although my position has received very favorable national commendation, it has not been very comfortable here in Atlanta, In general, our business friends have really been upset, and I have had to bear constant criticism. I felt that I was right, and I have not changed any of my opinions. We leave next week for Nairobi where Louise will join us for a 4-week Safari. The "we'' is Inman and myself, This is my first time away from the office since I have been here, and I am looking forward to it greatly. Let me know what lyour plans are this Fall, and if you have any free time to come down in November or December, we will spend a full week at the Farm, which now has the added attraction of going fishing as well as good hunting. It is not the same type of fishing that you and I have enjoyed at Homosassa, but it is still good. With highest personal regards, Iam Sincerely yours, Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor IAJr/eo

  • Text: “SOLDIERS JOY” 231 PEACHTREE BATTLE AVE.. N.W. ATLANTA 5, GEORGIA August 3 51963. My dear Ivan the Second : I read with great pride in you that Snator John 0. Pastore , the Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee , had said after your testimony , that he felt humble in your presence . Atlanta fas been brought to the favorable attention of the entire United Stattes and the World though the World Wide recognition of your nobility of character » Your integrity, fairness and goodness stood out in what you said to the Senate Commerce Committee . You are the Earlys' Candidate for the most outstanding Mayor of a large American City in the U.S. for the Twentieth Oomtury so far. May many fine days of Constructive achievements lie in°store for you in the years to comes I cut out a " poison pen " letter which appear= ed in yesterday's Atlanta Jornal signed Neal Adams and in which he g Says : " ANegro is all right in his own place , and that is where hek should stay . " Mark Twain said that the worst thing one could say about a being is that he belonged to the Human Race . The letter of Neal Ad Adams helps prove Mark Twain's Contemtions Who is Neal Adams to decide what is a Negre 's place . What he means is thit while negpoep slavery to individual slave owners ender} with the end of the Civil War , he would have humm slavery continue ina different form by condemning all Negroes to the lowest, most unpaid, and unskilled day labor jobs . Being kept in their place meag)that every person with a chocolate brown skin is to be a Biblical " Hewitr of Wood and Dpawer of Water " and nothing else o Negroes in their place means tovhite segregationaZist Negroes digging ditches , washing dishes cleani-ng up Wash rooms and nothing elseo The Negroes proper place is to be allowed tod do any thing he has the intelligence , ability , character , ambition, education and skill to do and which he would be allowed to do of his skin was not black. America needs the brains , skills and abilities ¢ of every competent and eager-to-serve American Citizen regardless of b the color of his skin, : It is only fair to admit that at present if we take a million Negroes and compare them with a million whites the Negroes will certainly have fewer highly educated and technically skilled persons in their gtoup that the same number of white people. But thatis not, reason to keep the skilled and educated Negroes in virtual slavery: De of their just rights by Southern Segregationalists has un= doubtedly injured Negroes of the South, But is has injured the Communiy of Southern Whitesfar mores The idea that no Negro can compete on term of Equality with the White man just is not so. I am going to Analyze kb the situation in reference to just activity first and that is in line of Athletics, Page lo Page 20 “SOLDIERS JOY" 231 PEACHTREE BATTLE AVE.. N.W. ATLANTA 5, GEORGIA The reason I take Athletics first which is a physical thing is that the Results of Athletic Contexts are facts, NOt even the most vicious and @@praved of the Negro-Hating Racists can @eny and disprove the Negroes achievements in Athletics . Americans kept the Negro girl Althd#¢@ Gibson df the Tennis Courts for many yearse She learned Tennis by knocking a tennis ball around the streets of Harlem with a wooden paddle, But Althaa. Gibson became the Woman Tennis Champion of the World . The United States has not had a Woman Champion Tennis player since Athda Gibson retired o a In the World Olympic Contests which jas you know, take place once evry four years , the United States might well stand abfut equal to some petty South or Central American Country but for tl Negro Athletes on ou¥“Olympic Teamse I need not recall to you that in the 1960 Olypics that Rafer Johnson Negro won the Decthalon , The Negroes Ralph Budd , Thomas , Wilma Rudolp were high on the team stars Miss Wilma hoRudolph won three gold medals for the United States Teamo It is tok be noted that recently in Moscow , Russia our American team of Women Athletes competed against Russian Women Athletes, Miss Wilma Rudolph was not along with the American Team, The Russian Women won all 10 mé@ic fsx gold medals for top places . The American White women did not win a single gold medal. Just the other day a Southern Negro Bob Hayes from Florida broke the world Record for the 100 yards dash , The first Negro that was allowed to play in professional Base ball was in 1947 ; Jackie Robinson ; That was a brief 16 years ago, Last year both the First and Second most valuable Baseball player in bhe National League were Negroes. Number 1 Maury Wills NOo 2 Willie Mays. And who was voted bhe most Vaiuable Baseball player in the American League : A negro of course. In the College Basket ball champion ship this# very year who won 2 Ioyela University in Chicago with dj Negroes playing in the six man team. What white basket ball players can be na named that are in the class with with Wattx Wilt Chamberlain . Bill — Russell , Ascar Robertson etc. Negro professional Basket ball players, If one wishes to see a world Championship Prize fight in most any weight class as for instance the Liston=Clay Conbst schedule for next month , he has to go to see one Negro fighting anetir anothrr . What thd Negro has achieved in competitive Athletics has he achieved not with encouragement but spite of every obstacle that tle Segregationalist could devise . Southren Negroes have " Voted with thierfeet " and nearly half of them left the South . But even at that ’ half of the Negroes in America still live in the South, Until very recently any of the Southern Negroes who attempted to compete in Athldic Page 2.5 Page 3o “SOLDIERS JOY" 231 PEACHTREE BATTLE AVE.. N.W. ATLANTA 5, GEORGIA would have been rushed off to jail immediately. What will the Negro Ac-= hieve when he is free to compete in Athletics every where in the Unitd States. That is one thing that will speed integration x . In mixed Schools when the students anon 2 ae ball game , for instance 3y every member of the team may well be Students of schools are going to cheer for their team even if they are all Negroesan [%e teem. The above just deals with Negries' ae achievements in athletics. The Southern Segregationalsit will say : That is just physical . They are so much nearer savages than we whites when they had to be active to keep alive . But they are inferior in © brain power, They cant compete with white people mentally " Keep them in their place " Let them confine them selves to digging ditches and cleaning wash roomse For many years Marian Anderson was not allowed to sing in a white Concert hall in this country © She had to go and lis © live in Europe to be allowed to sing. Finally the aélaim of Europe en enabled her come back to her native land amd be allowed to sing , The Director of the Symphony La Scala Orchestra in Milan, Italy said that Marian inderson had the finest singing voice in the 20th Century. That is a question of opinion. Any way she was , and is,a superior concert singer. I heard the Laurel , Mississippi NegreSs Leontyne Price Singing in Opera in Vienna in the summer of 1961. I have been going to Opera for 60 Years » Never in my whole life have I heard such tumultow and continued applauseas the Europefig Music Lovers gave Leontyne Prica. o Some ousstanding Music Critics say that LeontYne Price is the greatest Opera singer who ever lived Others are more moderate and say that she is potentially the greatest Opera Singer that has ever liéWd so far, To me she is very good but I have hear others justas good, But if Neal Adams had his way Marian ADAMS AND Leontyne Price would be fixed in their places avedoing menial domestic housework as actieaiiom near slaves . I think that it was wonderful and noble of you Ta Ivan to introduce Mattiwilda Dobbs to her first recital in Atlanta Municipal Auditorium » I attach a clipping I made at the time of you introducing her . You look so handsome and distinguished .If-f Neal Adms Adams had his way Mattiwilda Dobbs would be a waitress in a restaurant or similar jobe By the way,the Story of the Dobbs Family as I read it in the Atlanta News Papers’ is an,epic of the Negro Race . There were and are six Girls in the Dobbs Fomilye The father was a postal clerke There was no money for education-in the Dobbs Fomily. If they were tog get an education they had to get out and work their way t“hrough schodl, All six did o Five earned their M.A. Degrees and one a PhD. Equal. that, if you ean, any Millionaire white Family in Atlanta, I wint prolongue this already much too long letter by going into the constantly increasing triumphs of the Co Y ed Race in the Educational and scientific World, Page 36

ATLANTA 5, GEORGIA Their progress is amazing especially when you consider how many handia@caps they had and how far back they started . When I was a small boy in Vim Virginia in a country district, not a single Negroe could regd or writes And that was 25 years after Geyeral Lee surrendered at Appogatax Courtases Two or_three Years ago the Atlanta News Papers printed an account of a poor Georgia Family who thought they could do better moving out of the State and moved to Pennsylvania, Three of the Biys became doctors , Or a lawyer and 1 an Engineer. One of the Doctor brothers had just been = selected as the Outstand Poctor of the year in hgi state. The point is that the five brothers were Negroes. We dont want any more Negros Families like that driven out of Georgia because they are denied their fair and legitimate opportunities in Georgia ,. They would be real assets to us in Georgias Fsmally in closing I want to insist that I an not a " damyankee " but a Southerner who loves the South and dont want the South to do any thing thd Degrades the South. So if I appear to be bragging about my ancestors it is not from egotism but to set the record straight and establish the fadj that I am a Southerner and Notin— ing but a Southerner. My ancestors on both sides of my Family have bea Southerners and nothing but Southerners for nearly 300 years ely Mother and my father's mother likewise wereCabells . So I am doubly a Cabe@le My people with their kinsmen have been Governors of Southern States including Virginia, Kentucky and Maryland to Alabama . My Great=- greatgrandfathers brother went from virginia to Princeton and graduate in 1792. Instead of coming back to Virginia he came-to & Georgia . -He was Congressman y U,S. Senator and Governor of Ggorgia o Governor Peter Early of Georgia, He died soon at 6 ,. Otherwise he hax might have been better known nationally. Senator John Cabell Breckinrige of Kentucky was my mothers near relative. He was the Southern Democratic Candidate for President in 1860, The Northern Democrats splif off and nominated Senator Douglas of Illinois and the Republicans a minority @ party r, won the election due to the split in the Memocrati partye My father fought as a confederate Soldierinm in the Battle of Gettysburg.

I had five Cabell Cousins kil (ed in the one small Civil War Battle of New Market where the Vel Cadet Battalion won the victory at heavy lo;s of life. So if I am not a co’ a Southerner and a Son of theConfederacy who is, I hope that some of the info-rmation I have writt®y to you may be of some small help to you in your battle for fairness, decency and justice, The survival of America is involved in your standing fast.

You expressed the thoughtful concern of the decent citizens of Atlanta for the inherent rights of all our citizens and for the need to assure the Negro community of its full rights as Amercians and as Georgians. I know that many Atlantans join with me in un- equivocal support of your position. If there is anything that I can do to help maintain Atlanta's progress in the field of race relations, I hope that you will feel free to call upon me. Janice joins me in warmest regards to you and Mrs. Allen. s always, sincerely, JMR /eks “

Beiswanger Decatur, Georgia September 3, 1963 Mr. Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Allen: Mrs. Beiswanger and I moved in June from Milledge- ville, where both of us were teaching in the Woman's College, to the Aflanta area. I am teaching in the philosophy department of Georgia State College. Though our actual residence, as you see, is in Decatur, we are thrilled to be in Atlanta, It is such a beautiful city. We had been in and out of it many times, but now we are really getting to know it. I had intended to write you sooner because of the stand you took on the Civil Rights proposals now before the Congress, Your position, as I see it, is both right and sound, One of the reasons we took into full acount when deciding to come to Atlanta was its sensible way of dealing with the racial problem, We took pride in that in before we came, and hope we can continue to feel good about the city in this respect, despite the set backs from time to time, and the obstinate. Among summer explorations here, we took in the Shakespeare productions of the Academy Theatre, expect-— ing little and discovering much, Also we are finding the art galleries quite exciting on the whole. And it is such a pleasure to be in a city built in a forest. Our appreciation for all you are doing as mayor and civic leader, Co ly yours, George Beiswanger — r f AZ H AL pels

  • Text: William Voigt, Jr. R. D. 3 Mecuanicssura, Pa. July 26, 1963 Mayor Ivan Allen city of _tlanta Atlanta, Ga. Dear Mr, Mayor: The television news reports and the newspaper accounts of your appearance before the Senate committee on the civil rights issue left me proud of the city of my birth tonight. Don't let the "junior" on my name fool you; I was a reporter for the old Georgian-American when Bill Hartsfield was a young alderman in 1926, I followed his actions in preventing racial discord when he was mayor, and liked the way he handled matters, Now you have proved more than a worthy successor, in my view; you've gone a step further, a long step, Economic integration cannot be withheld any longer. It is inevitable; it must come, Social integration is another matter, We have no choice on the former; we do have a choice on the latter, This is one of the key areas of reasoning, in my view. If it has been used in treating with the die hards, it has not been so reported in the press of the North, where I have lived most of my adult years. It may be worth considering as we painfully creep toward giving the Negro his long overdue due, It may possibly be an argument to use in hastening the day of equal economic rights and treatment, Ad WV, William Voigt,/Jr.

  • Text: 45 West 10th Street New York, New York 10011 July 27, 1963 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. Atlanta Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: Please accept my most sincere and hearty congratulations on the brilliance, clarity, and meaning of your July 26th statement to the Senate Commerce Committee. Among all the millions of words that have been spoken and written on both sides of the segregation-integration is- sue, your statement stands out as a model of integrity and as a rare example of what the United States of Ameri- ca really represents. I feel certain that millions of others throughout this nation, no matter what their racial, ethnic, or religious backgrounds, join me in extending genuine gratitude for your statement. Several years ago, I had the good fortune to spend some time in Atlanta. I found it a beautiful, energetic, and thoroughly gracious citye I do not know if you were mayor at that time, but I am certain that your administration has helped to make Atlanta a still finer city. I send you my best wishes for continued success and my hopes that your civic career will prosper. Your state- ment marks you as one of an all too rare breed of pub- lic official. Would that we had more like you. With respect and gratitude, JI baes Z. GW ey Jess Lowen
