  • Text: ee st ees — Vii te a Report of Events Occuring in Peyton and Utoy Forest on Monday Evening, June 11, 1962 At approximately 7:30 p.m. Monday evening, June 11, I received a call from a neighbor who reported having seen several cars driven by Negroes entering the drive to the home owned by F. E. Bennett. Since rumors had been circu- lating recently about the intentions of certain people in the area to sell their houses to Negroes, I decided to investigate the matter. Icalled F, E. Bennett and he suggested that I come over to his house right away. Several neighbors were informed and we proceeded to Mr. Bennett's. As we were arriving Mr. Callaway, a Negro was leaving; however, two Negroes had remained. Mr. Bennett immediately gave the following account as the reason for the Negroes presence: Mr. Bennett stated that he had purchased property recently from Calhoun Realty Company and had gone out of town before completing the transaction. He stated that upon returning he found a business card stuck in his door which he glanced at and mistook for Calhoun Realty Company. Since he had further business to transact with Calhoun he called the number on the card on Monday to make arrange- ments for completing his business transaction. The number he had a called was Callaway Realty Company, a Negro firm. Mr. Bennett ‘ explained that Mr. Callaway, a Negro, wanted to come out and talk to him regarding his property in Peyton and Utoy Forest. Mr, Bennett told him he was not interested. Mr. Callaway then informed Mr. Bennett that his company already had two listings in the area, Mr. Bennett stated he asked to be shown the listings and that Mr. Callaway said he would bring them to Mr. Bennett's house at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening. Mr. Bennett then stated he called several neighbors, including Mr. Baker and Mr. Ramsey, to have them present when Mr. Callaway arrived. On Tuesday evening Mr. Callaway arrived alone and stated he had brought only one Listing and one of his Salesmen was bringing the other. Shortly thereafter two Negroes arrived in , separate cars. Mr. Bennett stated that the Negroes failed to produce the listings. They said it would be bad business practice but said ‘° they had the listings. The Negroes further stated that one house was on Harlan Road and one in Peyton Forest, This was the account given as the reason for the Negroes presence, As stated previously, when several neighbors and J arrived at the Bennett home two Negroes were still present. Mrs. Baker, Messrs. Bennett, Daniels, Porter, Kovas, Monnerat, Scroggs, and I discussed the situation with the Negro salesman representing Callaway Realty Company. The Negroes insisted that they did not wish to go against what the majority of the people in the area wanted but that they were in business to sell real estate anywhere to anyone. They stated that if we decided to sell contact Callaway Realty Company. They also said that it was possible to work out a group selling contract similar to the one used in the Wisteria Lane area, The Negroes kept insisting that they wanted our listings if we decided to sell. We told them that ours was a white neighborhood and we had every intention to keep it white. One Negro began stating statistics of the ratio of Negro and white population to Negro and white property area. He also said that Mr. Callaway was asked by the owners to take the listings of the two houses. The Negroes were evasive about the two listings but said the prices of the houses were $21,000 and $21,700 respectively. We accused them of soliciting business in the area but they denied it. When confronted with the fact of Negroes continously riding around in the area, they denied knowledge of it but said there was no law against it. The conversation lasted about 45 minutes. The Negroes passed out their business cards, asked that we call themon what we decided, and left. Cc. J. Owens 681 Fielding Lane age

  • Text: 42 Kirkland Street Cambridge 38, Massachusetts January 31, 1963 Dear Mayor Allen, We want to congratulate you on your most unique idea for furthering the progress of integration. The method you chose for enhancing this all important cause is, in fact, so Simple we can see why no one had thought of it before. By setting up the "wall" in Cascade Heights you gave your better citizens (both Negro and White) a common enemy, therefore causing them to put aside trivial differences, join forces, and fight for something much more important--the need for basic survival. When such 'hecessities" as medical aid, food deliverys, fire fighting equipment, and school buses are prevented from going their prescribed rounds, it is obvious that mere color differences will be lost in the shuffle to restore conditions to what the modern society is accustomed to. We expect to see your wall in Cascade Heights go down in history with the importance of Khrushchev's wall in Berlin and Kennedy's blockade of Cuba. That is, just as Khrushchev forwarded freedom by allying the freedom-loving peoples against his wall, and just as Kennedy forwarded peace by allying the peace-loving peoples against his blockade, you, Mayor Allen, have forwarded integration by allying the Negro and White peoples of Atlanta against your wall. Again, congratulations! With our admiration, Ladue J.Apsk Bruce C. Barthel William J. Apsit BCB,WJA/1r

E. « ATLANTA 3, GEORGIA CONFIDENTIAL and PERSONAL February )), 1963 Dear Morrist As much as 1 would love to see you and the U, N. groups come to Atlanta to "view racial amity," I think that the hotel situation and the Peyton Read barriers would be most embarrassing to you, Atlanta and America. The hotels of Atlanta still refuse to accept Negroes but they will house nonwhites from other countrics. Moreover, the closing of Peyton Road near Dr. Harris’ property = is considered as a “Berlin Wall” which we all are ashamed of, So, until the Aldermanic Board recinds its action, by opdering the barriers along Peyton Road taken down, I think that you would be embarrassed. On the other hand, the proposed visit might hasten the rectification of the aforementioned injustices. So, I leave the decision to you. I am sending Mayor Allen a confidential copy of this letter because he may wish to write you. With very best wishes, I am Cordially yours, R. A.

F. kL, Bennett stating that (Mr.) Calloway of Calloway Realty’Co. had con- tacted him and said he could show proof that he (lMr.}j Calloway had the listing on two houses for sale in our area, Mr. Bennett told my husband that he had an appointment with Galloway Monday evening at 7:0'clock at his (Mr. Bennett's) home and asked my husband to be there. Our house is for sale and Mr. Bemett knew this information would be of interest to us. fhe following Monday afternoon I received a telephone call from (ifr. ) Jewell & salesman of Calloway Realty Co., inquiring about our house. I : immediately told him that it was not for sale to colored. He asked if we would contact him if we should change our minds, Monday evening lir. Bennett called our home and asked for my husband or me to come to his home immediately and since my husband was out,I went. When I arrived I found that in addition to (Mr.}) Calloway being there, his sales= men Jowell and kd Billingsley were there also. The first thing that Mr. bemoett said when I got there was that he wanted it clearly understood by me that he had not contacted them (Mr.} Calloway stated in my presence that he had contacted lir. Bennett. I asked (lir.} Calloway who had listed their property with him and he said that he could not tell me that, but he could give me the location = which he did. He said one house was located on Harlan 2d. near Peyton Ra. and the other ons was on Shelley Dr, I wn't go into details about the discussion, but the subject of ethics came up and I asked (lire) Jewell if it wasn't unethical for colored real estate opsrators to contact white people about buying their property and he s&@id absolutely not = that they were in the real estate business and they could solicit from (for their clients) and sell to, anyone.
