ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30303 VELEPHONE (404) 577-1941 October 23, 1967 The Honorable Ivan Allen Mayor of the City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia f Dear Mayor Allen: May I add my congratulations (to what I hope have \ been many) at your decision to press the issue of consolidation. As you well know from our conversations, the CIP Workshops, and the "Atlanta" article I am 100 per cent behind this reordering of our metropolitan governments. If there is anyway I can be of help to you in moving this effort forward, I am eager and willing. Our firm has been deeply involved in this area in recent months through our work with Savannah-Chatham County, the Muscle Shoals Council of Governments, and the District of Columbia. We are gaining some measure of expertise and a deep understanding of the problems of governmental restructuring. It seems inappropriate to us because of our past work for the City and my publically-known views for our firm to make a proposal for the work now being contemplated in studying consolidation. However, we are ready to provide any advice and assistance you might deem helpful in identifying appropriate firms to carry out the work. To that end, I have reviewed the gualifications of some of our competitors ( a difficult task to accomplish with- out bias) to see who might do the City and County a good The Honorable Ivan Allen Page 2. October 23, 1967 job. One organization which you might consider is the Midwest Research Institute. I asked one of their staff to send me some information on their activities and abilities in governmental organization, a copy of which is enclosed. If information on other firms such as this would be of interest to you, I will be happy to assemble it and pass it on. Finally, let me again offer my time and the firm's time to assist you on this project in any matter you might suggest. With best wishes, GTH/am Enc.

Speaking for myself, I would certainly heartedly endorse your proposals, particularly in regards to merging the services of Atlanta and Fulton County. I just makes plain sense to do so, although I know that there will probably be objections from the usual objectors. If the Young Republicans can be of any help to you in this project, I certainly hope that you will let us mow, Although I have disagreed in the past and probably will do so in the future with you on national partisan politics, I do want you to know that in my opinion you have done an outstanding job in your six years as Mayor. Even your severest critics will have to acknowledge that you have the courage to attack problems that persons of lesser backbone would leave alone. Best regards, Sincerely, Cpls u English Thornwell ET:tds

  • Text: | 4 Mother Speaks | of Nudism By Reth Kerk ® TROPICANA NUDIST SOCIETY Post Office Box 1/8 Chicago, lilinois 60690 THE AMERICAN SUNBATHING ASSOCIATION, INC. Mays Landing, New Jersey a) Printed in U.S.A. by A.S.A. Bees oi ea at A Mother Speaks of Nedism By Rath Kirk Secretary of Fraternity Snoqualmie Club I think that as a rule the husband first becomes interested in nudism. The wife generally holds back a little and sometimes quite a bit. It is easier for the male to throw off his co-called modesty, and shyness. He is a little more used to seeing others of his own sex in the nude — in sports, on the job, ete. I think that women are reared more guardedly and instilled much more with the idea of the shame of exposing the nude body. We have so many in- hibitions and complexes to get rid of. Both men and women. Nudism usually starts at home. First the hus- band grows lax in dress — he runs around in shorts for a while before dressing — or from bath to bed- room with nothing on — or maybe he sits and reads the paper a while that way. The children start to copy him — they just naturally like to go nude anyway. You fuss at your husband for setting the example — it just isn’t decent to let the children see you that way; you fuss at the children to put their clothes on. He likes the freedom of movement without clothes and knows the children do too, and tells you to let them alone and let them enjoy them- selves. He coaxes you to try it. But you are horrified — the children will lose respect for their mother if they see her running around like that. And besides, what would the neighbors think? But after a while you catch yourself going from the bathroom to the bedroom quickly to get something you forgot or you dash to answer the telephone in the nude and one of the children catches you. And the child doesn’t seem to be horrified at all — you are the one horrified and ashamed of your nude body. But still — you don’t think it is right for decent people to act that way — the body is sinful and shameful and should be kept covered so as not to excite thoughts or give the chil- dren “ideas.” Then one night your husband brings home a nudist magazine he has seen on the news stand. You refuse to look at it. That filthy thing — imagine bringing that into the home where the children might see those nasty pictures. You are indignant at the whole raatter and refuse to have anything to do with it. Your hus- band reads the articles and tells you about one or two of them. About what a nudist camp is and the activi- ties that go on there. How healthy it is for children — the outdoor living. Out of curiosity, one day when you are alone, you pick up the magazine and leaf through the pages. You see the posed pictures of the beautiful girls. You don’t like them. Then after a while you look at the articles and glance through two or three of them. They do sound interesting, yes, but — you wonder what kind of people are those nudists, anyway. Sunworshippers? Exhibitionists? Fanatics of some sort? Some kind of religious cult? Why do they have to take all their clothes off to get the benefit of the sunlight, why not leave some little thing on to cover up their nakedness? Your husband continues to discuss the subject occasionally. Finally you realize his seriousness and you sit down with him and discuss the matter of taking your family to a nudist camp. Your mental attitude has to go through quite a change. In order for you to make your first visit to a nudist camp a lot of the inhibitions and complexes you have carefully nurtured all these years have to be cast out; the false modesty you have been taught; the shame complex; the idea that you have a body that is sinful and shameful and it is obscene to show certain parts of it in public — especially in front of the opposite sex. Most of us have been brought up very strict morally, and nudism seems to be absolutely against everything we have been taught as a child. And then there are the chil- dren — supposing they told the neighbors — or their school chums — or Aunt Sally or Uncle Fred — what would you do? And there is also a very personal fear — your figure isn’t as pretty as those girls in the magazines. Supposing you went there and your husband saw someone prettier than you. Or perhaps you have a surgical scar — it would look so awful. And besides you would lose all your femininity and allure for your husband. You know the old saying, “Familiarity breeds contempt.” Your husband can see the benefits to be gained for his family. And as he becomes more insistent, you finally give in and say, well, all right, just this once. He writes to the local club, whose name and address is in the magazine, and finds out where their camp is and gets permission to visit. You pack a pic- nie lunch, load the children into the car and are on your way. You have varied feelings of fear, curiosity and bravado. You don’t know what to expect. Is it really a place to take your children? What will they see there? You round a bend in the read, go through a gate, and suddenly you are there. You see a nude tian chepping wood. ‘here is a spirited game of velley ball going an. People down by the pool — chil- dren running back and forth, playing, swinging on the swings and hardly anyone even turns his head as you drive in. You sit in the car a minute, taking it all in. Before you can make up your mind to get out of the car you are greeted cordially by one of the members and invited to get out and walk around the camp and see what is there. You are taken here and there and introduced to some of the members. Without appar- ently looking, you see all kinds of people: short, tall, slim, stout, all sorts of figures, both male and female, some with fine tans and scme white and some pink with sunburn. You look at the inviting pool, the green lawn and the sun is warm. The children are tugging at your hand, begging to go in the pool, and can’t we take our clothes of. Mommy? And suddenly you feel so conspicuous with your clothes on and you want to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air with the relaxed free- dom these other people seem to have. You go to your car and disrobe, and the first step has been taken. The biggest step. As time goes on, you find all your fears disspelled. As for your figure, you find there are some who look better than you do and some look worse. You have learned that physical limitations go unnoticed: they are entirely commonplace. You find that it is the indi- vidual, the personality that is important. You think of the different ones, not of their physical defects or beauty, but of their individuality — the effect that per- son has had on you. Their body is unimportant. You find that the moral standard is very high in a nudist camp. There is no liquor allowed, either on the prem- ises or in the individual. There are no smutty stories teld — no over display of affection — folks conduct themselves the same as on any public beach — only their conduct is better. You find there is no sex stimu- lation brought on by lack of clothing of anyone present. There is almost always a game of some kind going on — volley ball is the universal nudist sport; there is usually work to ke done to improve or beautify the grounds. Another thing, you find that the freedom of nudism intensifies the beauly of your martial relations. Your fears on that score were entirely unfounded. As for the children — they are so healthy living in the fresh air and the sunlight this way — learning new and interesting things about the outdoors. They co not have the ingrained inhibitions you have had to overcome. To go without clothes is a perfectly na- tural thing for them. It is easy for them to understand that here they can go nude but in town they can’t be- cnuse everycne doesn’t do it as they do at eamp. And that is all the explanation they need. They look at you strangely if you try to bring cut the shame of showing your body in public. You find in the future that your nudist life has made the answering of the children’s questions in regard to growing up and adulthood and their sexual problems much easier. They do not have the curiosity about the opposite sex other children have. They have seen and understand the differences in the human figure and explaining the functions of the different parts of the body is simple. They are easier in their attitudes toward other children. I do not mean freer — I mean easier. They do not have the shyness that other children have because of curiosity. They have a poise, a sureness — an attrac- tive freshness — a wholesomeness — that comes from knowing they have a healthy body and a healthy mind, which is more important. They are not interested in sneaking down on burlesque row or reading books that have to be sneaked behind the barn or looking at ob- scene pictures. The facts of life are known to them and there is no vicarious thrill in these things. From my own experience — my fifteen year old boy came home to me one day and told me that some of the boys in his class had climbed up on the wall to peek in the win- dows of the girls’ room so they could see the girls. I asked him if he did and he said why should he — he knew what girls looked like. He was disgusted with such behavior and said of they were all nudists that sort of thing could not happen. There is no record of a juvenile delinquent from a nudist family. As time goes on, you will spend as much time as you can at the nudist camp because it is an inexpen- sive outing — the children love it — and it is some- thing your whole family can take part in. No more husband going off fishing or golfing or something else, while you and the children stay home on Sundays. Now, everyone eagerly goes to the “country” for the day or the weekend. And that is because you have found the greatest thing for all — the thing that makes us nudists for the rest of our lives and makes us wish we had not wasted so many years accepting it. That is the freedom — the utter freedom. As I said before, in order to take the first step, you have already cast out some inhibitions and old conventionalities. And you get rid of more and more as you go along. You remember wondering why nudists have to take every- thing off — why not leave something on? You have found out why — because you have overcome the shame of the body — of certain parts of the body. You have found that one part is as beautiful as the other and each has its own natural function to do. There is nothing to be hidden — no reason for wearing “some little thing.” Actually, now, you feel it is indecent and obscenely suggestive to cover parts of the body. You feel it is wrong for clothes to be worn for the purpose of concealment. Better that they be worn hbe- cause of the inclement weather or because of the job being done or some other such reason. You have learned the thrill of the sunlight and the air and the breezes on your nude body — the smoothness with which your body glides through the rippling water. You have come to the point where you can hardly wait for the weekends to come around so you can go to camp and take off the clothes you have to wear all week in town because you have learned that the act of taking off your clothes and cleansing your body in the clean air includes cleansing your mind of all the nervous tensions and cares and worries that beset you daily at home; and you find utter relaxation. Absol- ute, utterly free rest and relaxation. And you go home rejuvenated not only in body but in mind. You get the feeling as you stand by your car and disrobe, that with your clothes you strip off the ugly, dirty world and here alene is peace and brotherhood with your fellow man. Here you find friendly, cordial people, broad of mind, tolerant, respectful of persons. This is not something that happens immediately. For some, the transition to true nudism is quick. For others it take quite a while. For some, it is easy to take their clothes off — but not so easy to take their minds off, so to speak — to take off the false veneer of conventionalities; to overcome the petty jealousies and possessiveness between husband and wife; the lustful thoughts towards others; the false shame of the body that is evidenced in these things. And when you do finally reach the understanding of the phil- osophy of nudism, you find your horizons unlimited, a great peace of mind, a richness in your enjoyment of life. You have found that freedom. And you bless the day you agreed to go to the nudist camp. — ADDITIONAL COPIES OF THIS FOLDER ARE AVAILABLE (postpaid) AT POSTAGE AND HANDLING COST. 1 - 5 FREE 6 OR MORE - 1¢ EACH 200 OR MORE - 1/2¢ EACH The American Sunbathing Association, Inc. 6 E.

I congratulate you and the other insurance excutives highly for your brave and courageous committment of goodness from your hearts. I am praying that one day in the near future you will also be proud of your committments. It is not easy to give financial backing to a project when you know the risks outweigh the economic feasibility of said project. The specific project or projects are more than needed in most of American metropolitan cities, as low rent housing in our deteriorating and pest- ridden cities will accept your program without any questions. This is one of the finest things that could have happened to the slums. Yet you have done exactly what I have been pushing some of our large foundations and corporations to do, especially the labor organizations (union). See enclosed letter number one. The banking institutions are doing a swell job considering the many re- strictions that they have to contend with for the best interest of all concerned. [I feel that the large labor unions-could give more consider- ation to the housing situation in our cities. [ believe the union has more dues paying members than any other national organization in America, I have great praises for our honorable president of the United States, L.B.J. for pushing, and trying to get private enterprises involved in the crash-housing program. Our own mayor, the Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., is doing a marvelous job in getting the message through to both private and governmental agencies. ,i.e; how very badly we need decent housing in Atlanta for all people, especially in the Negro areas in which is far less than up to par with the rest of the city. SOUTH FULTON’S FINEST COUNTRY CLUB Page -Z2- to: Mr. Gilbert Fitzhugh September 20, 1967 We are forming ''The Gilmere's Urban Development Corporation" with a proposed capitalization of 65-million dollars. All we need is a top-heavy underwriter or some semi-top-heavy subscribers. We already have projects on the drawing board to exceed 110-million in community de- velopments, about 75-million of this will be strictly for multi-family units in the low and medium income bracket, and of course, some of the most luxurious in the world. Our prime objective is to build and re-build deteriorated sections of Atlanta, not only the residential sections, but the business and down- town area as well. We also anticipate developing parks, schools, and other recreational facilities for Atlanta area. Decent housing and adequate housing alone will not solve all the social ‘and economic problems of our slum areas, but providing decent and adequate housing for all people, it will help to remedy the situation by 50 percent, leaving the need of education about 25 percent, employment 25 percent, and I do mean adult education; i. e; teaching occupatinnal skills, and trades. Sincerely, I do believe you and your colleages have given a hypo in the arm of the poor housing situation, and [I just hope the Hell others will follow suit, not necessarily investing one billion dollars, but just a few million from ten or fifteen of the largest corporations will cure many, many, slum headaches. This will be something that one must consider not from the profit's point of view, but rather a break-even point of view. Again, thanking you and your colleages for your sincerest interest and your most needed investment and contribution to the above program. With kindest regards, and wishing you the most success, I remain Sincerely yours, Francis Gilmere, President FG/bam encls cc: 4 President L. B. Johnson, Dr. Robert C. Weaver, Secty.

A. by A.S . A: ~ �By Secretary of Fraternity Snoqualmie Club I think that as a rule the husband first becomes interested in nudism. The wife generally holds back a little and sometimes quite a bit. It is easier for t he male to throw off his co-called modesty, and shyness. He is a little more used to seeing others c,f his own sex in the nude - in sports, on the job, etc. I think that women are reared more guardedly and instilled much more with the idea of the shame of exposing the nude body. We have so many inhibitions and complexes to get rid of. Both men and women. Nudism usually starts at home. First the husband grows lax in dress - he runs around in shorts for a while before dressing - or from bath to 'bedr oom with nothing on - or maybe he sits and reads t he paper a whiJe that way. The children start to copy him - they just naturally like to go nude anyway. You fuss at your husband for setting the example - it just isn't decent to let the children sec you that way; you fuss at the children to put their clothes on. He likes the freedom of movement without clothes and knows the children do too, and tells you to let them alone and let them enjoy themselves. He coaxes you to try it. But you are horrified - the children will lose r espect for their mother if they see her r unning around like that. And besides, what would the neighbors think? But after a while you catch yourself going from the bathroom to the l>edroom quickly to get something you forgot or you dash to answer the telephone in the nude and one of the children catches you. And the child doesn't seem to be horrified at all - you are the one horrified and ashamed of your nude body. But still - you don't th:nk it is right for decent people to act that way the body is sinful and shameful and should be kept covered so as not to excite thoughts or give the chil

Ivan Allen, Mayor City of Atlanta, Ga. City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: I take this opportunity to tell you that I found the speech informative and interesting that you delivered to the Fulton County Delegation at the Tech Motel. You mentioned that you would never advocate merger or consolidation without the consent of all areas involved. On the strength of this statement, do I understand that you or your administration would oppose, or at least not support, the Commission's plan to effect Atlanta and Fulton County school systems merger, through abolition of the Atlanta school system? In effect, this plan would deny the citizens outside Atlanta a voice or vote in this matter that so vitally effects and concerns them. So that I might keep the citizens of South Fulton informed, I would like to further inquire why the city of Atlanta, at this time, is interested only in consolidation in Fulton County? I feel, as I am sure you do, that our citizens should be informed on matters that concern them. I would appreciate it if you could take the time from your busy schedule to give to me the requested information so that I may pass it on to my constituents. Sincerely, () t } eZ ha eh_e fs ee Dick Lane, Rep. District 126

  • Text: August 25, 1967 Honorable Dick Lane The House of Representatives 2704 Humphries Street East Point, Georgia Dear Dick: Thank you for your kind letter of October 23rd. As stated in my talk the other evening, I feel that Atlanta is entitled to the right and opportunity of normal growth and expansion; this includes taking into consideration the needs and desires of the other governments in the area. lam not familiar at the present time with the Commission's report on the merger of the school systems of Atlanta and Fulton County. I would think, however, that people in Atlanta, who, within themselves, constitute nearly 80% of the people of Fulton County, should have the same right as the other 20% of the citizens of Fulton County. It is my hepe that in the near future a meeting of the county commissioners and representatives of city government could be held in order that necessary steps could be planned to provide for a detailed professional study of both the needs and the beneficial results of a metropolitan government. Until this is done factually, I am afraid all of us will be limited in the information we can furnish in regards to the questions you raised, Sincerely, Ivan Allen, Jr. IAJr:am
