Atfania, Georgia 20309 AOAMBTS-BEPD April 10, 1967 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Re: Atlanta Stadium Dome Dear Ivan: As you requested, we have over the past few months made an extensive study of the possibilities for a removable roof for Atlanta Stadium, Working with Birdair Structures, Inc., we have now developed a design for an air-supported "umbrella" roof dome that Birdair believes can be put up or taken down in only three hours. This roof would be lifted into place by a 300-ft. high telescoping mast in the center of the field, which would then retract into a missile-type "silo," leaving the stadium covered and ready for use. We submit herewith slides and drawings illustrating the system. Rough preliminary estimates indicate that the roof system and mast, including the air-support equipment and a venti- lation system, would probably cost between $14 and $2 million. However, the present field lighting system would have to be modified, thereby making the total cost of the roof, its support systems, lighting modifications, and other work on portal vestibules, etc., possibly as high as $4 or $5 million. However, a side benefit of the light- ing modifications could be the raising of light levels to new requirements for night color television for football. As you will recall, all other types of dome structures and mechanical systems proposed in the past have been estimated at $15 to $18 million. HEERY AND HEERY- FINCH, ALEXANDER, BARNES, ROTHSCHILD, AND PASCHAL The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. April 10, 1967 Page 2 This new approach would not only be less objectionable aes- thetically, but could be utilized as a permanent-type roof, should the Authority subsequently find it desirable to install a heating and air conditioning system and plan to leave the roof in place for extended periods of time or permanently. The probable cost for a heating and air con- ditioning system for the stadium would run between $5 and $6 million, which would still give Atlanta a far better bargain than the Houston stadium, which cost some $38 mil- lion and is substantially smaller in both seating capacity and dimension than the Atlanta Stadium, We believe that this design may be an answer to your desire to assure fans traveling to Atlanta Stadium from cities throughout the Southeast that scheduled events will be played on the scheduled dates.

May 25, 1967 Mr, Sidney Scarborough Atlanta Stadium Atlanta, Georgia 30312 Dear Mr. Scarborough: The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc., (Jehovah's Witnesses) are interested in arranging for a con- vention in Atlanta, Georgia, July 6 through July 13, 1969. We would need at least two days of ingress and one day for egress. So the dates that we would require are July 4 through July 14, 1969, if we were to have our convention in Atlanta. I fully appreciate that in order to make arrangements to use the Atlanta Stadium things must be worked out with the baseball schedule first, but very likely if you speak with the officials in the National League to clear these dates they may do so. However, before this would be done there are a few questions that you may be able to answer, If you think it is better for me to see you personally then I could fly to Atlanta to discuss the whole matter with you and at the same time see the stadium and the facilities. What the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, (Jehovah's Witnesses), would like to do in 1969 is have another inter- national assembly in the United States. There is no place in the United States that is large enough to hold all of Jehovah's witnesses in one place. So we have to have the convention in sections and we hope to have an eastern section convention July 6 through July 13, from Sunday to Sunday inclusive, in the summer of 1969. We would like to have a convention at Yankee Stadium in New York and in Atlanta, Georgia on the same dates. This would handle the eastern part of the United States. The following week we would like to arrange for conventions in Chicago and St. Louis, to be held simultaneously, and this would involve July 13 through July 20. From there we would go to the West Coast to Anaheim, July 20 to July 27. It is our plan to use five different ball parks during this three-week period. I am currently working with the American League and with Mr. Joseph Cronin, its president, so as to try and clear the A&A NONPROFIT CORPORATION Mr. Sidney Scarborough Atlanta Stadium Atlanta, Georgia 30312 May 25, 1967, Page Two dates for Yankee Stadium, Comiskey Park and Anaheim Stadium. Of course, I can do the same, if necessary, with the National league, with its president Mr. Warren C. Giles. At the time I know whether the Atlanta Stadium will be available and you would want us to use your stadium during the above-mentioned dates, I could follow through with contacting Mr. Giles. I have spoken to Mr, Glennon J. Walsh, Director of Operations for the Civie Center Busch Memorial Stadium, and he is quite agreeable to renting the stadium to us if we ean clear it with the National League. Are you willing to rent the Atlanta Stadium to the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc., for these eight days with at least two days for ingress and one day for egress, so that we can get things set up and then dismantled? What would your rental fee be? Would you also let us know who handles the concessions at the stadium, because the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society usually operates its own cafeteria and refreshment stands, as well as handling all of the parking. We want agreement for all of the facilities available. To give you an example, at Yankee Stadium in New York city we arrange with the concessionaire through the management of the stadium to take over all of their facilities and to operate them with our volunteer help, all of whom are very experienced. We have handled large conventions for many years, but it may be that you are not acquainted with us. That is why I would be very happy to fly to Atlanta sometime early in June, if you would give me the choice of a few dates as to when you would be available, and then we would speak about this matter. Maybe we could come to some agreement and you could fet a better picture of what the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is and what we would like to do. Now that you know the dates we would like to have I am sure something could be done to arrange the 1969 baseball schedule. We anticipate that we would bring between 40,000 and 45,000 people to Atlanta and that very likely we would have that many in attendance at our closing session, the eighth Gay of the convention. That will give you some estimate of the crowd that we expect. Whatever price you would give us for the stadium we would want to include parking facilities that you have, and stadium concessions. We have worked out these matters satisfactorily with all other stadiums, and I am Mr. Sidney Scarborough Atlanta Stadium Atlanta, Georgia 30312 May 25, 1967, Page Three confident that it can be worked out with the Atlanta Stadium. We would very much like to include Atlanta, Georgia in our setup for the international assembly of Jehovah's witnesses in the United States in July of 1969 and would be very happy to hear from you. If you would like to discuss this more thoroughly, which I feel is advisable, please let me know and I will be happy to come to Atlanta to speak with you. J think that is a much better way to handle the matter. I would be pleased if you could let me know soon just what might be done. pincere ly yours, Ni bla N. H, Knorr President NHK/AG/AE

July 15, 1967 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the city of Atlanta, Georgia Atlanta, Georgia sir: In the month of June, 1966, a brochure was sent to me, Nathan H. Knorr, President of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, with the heading "Atlanta Invites You." Our Society has given consideration to your letter of June 14, 1966, that came with the brochure, inviting us to hold a large convention in Atlanta. I very much appreciated your letter. The brochure also contained a letter from the Governor of the State, as well as letters from the Atlanta Convention Bureau, the Atlanta Hotel, Motel Association and the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. We had considered coming to Atlanta during the days of July 6-13, 19609, Sunday to Sunday inclusive, and we concluded that we would very much like to have the use of the Atlanta Stadium, which I believe has a seating capacity of about 57,000 people. I wrote a letter to Mr. Sidney Scarborough, dated May 25, 1967, concerning our plans for 1969. I am enclosing a copy of this letter that sets out all of the details. However, I am sorry to say that up to this writing I have not yet received an answer to my letter. Whether the letter may have gone astray, or whether Mr. Scarborough is no longer in charge of the stadium rentals, I do not know. I thought I had the right information that Mr. Scarborough would be the man who could answer my questions. I have been working with the officials in the National and American Baseball Leagues in regard to adjusting dates in 1969, so that we could use various stadiums throughout the United States. I had thought that we would by this time have a reply from Mr. Scarborough, whom I believe to be the general manager of the Atlanta Stadium and the one to deal with in these matters, telling us what the price would be, whether the dates we desire would be available and whether the stadium is open to conventions such as ours. We anticipated bringing 40,000 to 45,000 people to Atlanta during the eight days of the convention in 1969. But to work 4& NONPROFIT CORPORATION The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the city of Atlanta, Georgia Atlanta, Georgia July 15, 1967, Page Two out our program for the summer of 1969 we must know well in advance whether organization controling the Atlanta Stadium would rent the stadium to us and work out arrangements with the Society for the use of the stadium during these particular dates. I know that Mr. Joseph Cronin of the American League and Mr. Warren Giles of the National League have appointed two gentlemen to speak to me about trying to work out dates for 1969 so that we could use Yankee Stadium and Atlanta Stadiun, as well as other ballparks, such as Comiskey Park, Busch Memorial Stadium and the Anaheim Stadium. We have had very fine relations with the New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox and the other stadium officials mentioned, but for some reason we do not have any definite word from Atlanta, Georgia. Perhaps your good offices could put me on the right track as to the person with whom I should communicate so as to get an answer to our request for use of the Atlanta Stadium on the dates we need it. We would be delighted to come to Atlanta and we like the facilities that you describe in your brochure. I would be very happy to come to Atlanta to see the stadium and the facilities available and to talk contract terms and to let the gentleman in charge know what we have done thus far with other stadium officials across the country. The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society would be happy to arrange for a large assembly in Atlanta, Georgia July 6-13, 19609. May I please hear from you with your suggestions on what I might do in this matter? Sincerely, y/ Th Wie Lt”\_ N. H. Knorr President NHK /ag

In addition, we plan to investigate other possibilities. We will try to bring this together in the form of a report that will recommend at least one system. We will illustrate its basic concept and attempt to define its probable cost as well as possible. In addition, we will make other studies of "“up-grading" features that might be undertaken, These may well in- volve improvement of football seating configuration and/or capacities, as well as methods of conversion to ice hockey and other uses, : ' One of our major concerns will be the selection of a system and methods that will allow the work to go for- ward without interruption of the regular baseball and football seasons. In this regard, we are operating on the assumption that, should such a project be undertaken, the stadium could be out of use in the months of December, January, February and March.

The material used and the life expectancy. 2. The noise of the inflating equipment. 3. The number of men that it takes to erect and take down the covering, as they would have to be trained people on a regular payroll in order to function efficiently. 4, For an ingress and egress for a large number of people the method of controlling the pressure for keeping the dome supported. I am afraid this is not of much help, but I believe the information would be necessary before one could make a recommendation. Yours truly, R. G.

In addition, we plan to investigate other possibilities. We will try to bring this together in the form of a report that will recommend at least one system. We will illustrate its basic concept and attempt to define its probable cost as well as possible. In addition, we will make other studies of "up-grading" features that might be undertaken. These may well involve improvement of football seating configuration ,tnd/01• o apl:\oi t i o s , as woll l\'3 1,u,i tho ds of conve1•sion to ice hockey and other uses, One of our major concerns will be the selection of a system and methods that will allow the work to go forward without interruption of the regular baseball and football seasons . In this regard, we are operating on the assumption that, should such a project be undertaken, the stadium could be out of use in the months of December, January, February and March.

At no time during the present season have we had a period of ten consecutive days without an event bein scheduled .

The Br ves h ve given this matter considerable thou ht and have held sever 1 inter- or anizational meetin concernin the matt r . It i now the Bravea studied opinion that they would be reluctant at thi time to rel e th stadium for a ten con ecutive day period in 1969.

However, I am sorry to say that up t o this writing I have not yet received an answer to my letter . Whether the letter may have g one astray, or whether Mr. Scarborough is n o longer in charge of t he stadium rentals , I do not know. I thought I had the right information that Mr. Scarborough would be the man who could answer my questions. 25, 1967, concerning our plans f or 1969 . I have been working with the officials in the Na t i onal and American Baseball Leagues in regard to adjusting dates in 1969, so that we could use various stadiums throughout the United States. I had thought that we would by this time ha ve a reply from Mr. Scarborough, whom I believe to be the general manager of the Atlanta Stadium and the one to deal with in these matters, telling us what the price would be, whether the dates we desire would be available and whether the stadium is open to conventions such as ours. We anticipated bringing 40,000 to 45,000 people to Atlanta during the eight days of the convention in 1969. But to work A NONPROFIT COR P O R ATION �The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the city of Atl anta, Georgia Atlanta, Georgia July 15, 1967, Page Two out our program for the summer of 1969 we must know well in advance whether organization controling the Atlanta Stadium would rent the stadium to us and work out arrangements with the Society for the use of t he stadium during these particular dates. I know that Mr. Joseph Cronin of the American League and Mr. Warren Giles of the National League have appointed two gentlemen to speak to me about trying to work out dates for 1969 so that we could use Yankee Stadium and Atlanta Stadium, as well as other ballparks, such as Comiskey Park, Busch Memorial Stadium and the Anaheim Stadium. We have had very fine relations with the New York Yankees, Chicag o White Sox and the other stadium officials mentioned, but for some reason we do not have any definite word from Atlanta, Georg ia. Perhaps your good offices could put me on the ri ght track as to the person with whom I should communicate so as to get an answer to our request for use of the Atlanta Stadium on t he dates we need it. We would be delighted to come to Atlanta and we li ke the facilities t hat you describe in your broch ure.

We wou l d need at least two da ys of ingress a nd one da y f or e gress. So the dates that we would require are Jul y 4 through J uly 14, 1969, if we were to have our co nvention in Atlanta. I fully appreciate t hat in orde r to make arrangements to use the Atlanta Stadium things must be worked out wi th the baseball schedule first, but very likely if you speak with the officials i n the Nat i onal league t o clear these da t es they may do s o. However, before this would be done there are a few questions that you may be able to answer . If yo u think it is better for me to see you personal l y then I could fly to Atlanta to discuss the whole matter with you and at the same time see the sta dium and the fac ilities . What the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, (Jehovah 's Witnesses), would like to do in 1969 is have another international assembly in the United States . There is no place in the United States that is large enough to hold all of Jehovah' s witnesses in one place . So we have to have the convention in sections and we hope to have an eastern section convention July 6 through July 13, from Sunday to Sunday inclu sive, in the summer of 1969. We wou ld like to have a convention at Yankee Stadium in New York and in At l anta, Georgia on the same dates . This would handle the eastern part of the United States. The following week we would like to arrange for conventions in Chicago and St . Louis, to be held simultaneously, and this would involve July 13 throu gh July 20. From there we would go to the West Coast to Anaheim, July 20 to July 27. It is our plan to use five different ball parks during this three-week period.

Now that you know the dates we would like to have I am sure something could be done to arrange the 1969 baseball schedule . We anticipate that we would bring between 40,000 and 45,000 people to Atlanta and that very likely we would have that many in attendance at our closing session, the eighth day of the convention. That will give you some estimate of the crowd that we expect . Whatever price you would gi ve us for the stadium we would want to include parking faci lities that you have, and stadium concessions.

I feel that the request which I have made is a simple and straightforward one which would ease the problems of parents with children who must attend the stadium events without the parents accompanying them.

Because of the nature of my wor k , I am unable to attend ma jor league sporting events as often as I · would like . I have severa l children, two of whom are avid ba seba ll and s occer fans. It has been my habit to carry them to the games when I cannot also attend and then pick them up after the games . In the past this has been no problem because I simply entere d the taxi lane, drove to the front of the stadium as any other taxi might do, picke d t hem up and left;,. I have never before been stopped or even questipne d in my use of this lane after the games. However, on the afternoon of J une 25th, when I attempted to enter this lane I was st oppe d by one of your officers . I explaine d the situation, but he laughed and said he couldn 't help it . If his orders were as he sa id, to prevent anyone using the taxi lane, then I think his orders should be change d. If these were not hi s orders , then I think he should be punished. In any event I fe el that he should be counsele d in how to m eet the public even when refu sing a c itizen's r equest . Exce pt for the use of the bus and taxi lane, I have be en unable to find any other route to the stadium after a stadium event. Las year I calle d the Atlanta Police Department and a sked for a dvice in this m atte r and was tol d that there was nothing they knew of or any way t o get t o the stadium. It was that night that I began using the taxi lane .and I had use d it on Saturday, June 24th , in this manner . On Sunday afternoon, as I stated earlier, when I attempted to turn from Me morial Dr ive onto Capitol Avenue into the taxi lane, I was stopped by a police officer , badge number 1319 . At that time, for a period of approximately a minute and a half, there was not one vehicle in sight up over the Expressway ramp in the taxi lane. This is a distance, as you well know, of approximately a block and a half to two blocks. My presence in tlrls lane would not have crowded it in the least and would not have inconvenienced anyone in the stadium area. It would , however , have spared me a great deal of distress in that it required me approximately 20-25 minutes to get close enough to the stadium to allow one of my other children to go and search for the ones who were waiting to be picked up. �W IU IAM R.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30308 JA 4-2666 Chief Herbert Jenkins June 28, 1967 Page 2 I know you have many problems and I know your officers are called on for many things. I do not want to add to your burdens or to theirs, but I do feel that it would be a better set-up if you allowed private citizens traveling to the stadium to pick up spectators to do so with the same privileges as commercial vehicles exercise. Certainly, before the game starts, I can see where the taxi lane should not be used, particularly since there are several other lanes leading to the stadium itself. However, after the stadium events are over there seems to me to be no logical reason why we could not use the lane for the same purpose as the commercial vehicles use it. I would appreciate your giving this your careful consideration. For their information, I am forwarding copies of this letter to Mayor Ivan Allen and to Mr. William C. Bartholomay.

Carrol Trosclair United Press international 520 Royal Street New Orleans, Louisiana Dear Carrol: From our street corner conference Thursday: Some members of the Louisiana domed stadium authority are planning to visit Atlanta on April 13 for the | opening of *the Braves baseball season. As I understand it, they will be guests of Mayor Ivan Allen and will make an inspection of the new Atlanta stadium. Maybe you would be interested in having your Atlanta bureau file something on this visit -- reactions to the stadium, comparison of Atlanita-New Orleans needs, etc. -- for the state wire. I would imagine the Atlanta Mayor's office is eee the visit and could help your people there. i Atlanta areuitests for the stadium there George T. Heery and Bill Finch, partners in two firms which co-ventured design of the stadium and are aiso double teaming the planning of a new stadium in Cincinnati. Aa interesting aspect of the Atlanta stadium is the fact that it was designed and built in under 21 months as compared with from four to six years for other major new stadia. The architectural team expects to bring in the Cincinnati stadium in from 22 to 26 months. We will be happy to supply any needed fill in data on either the aan te or Cincinnati projects. Thanks. Sincerely, Robert W. Smith, Jr. RVS , de/dwh

I personally think it would be helpful if you could put in better ventilation and also pipe sound in to it so that the operator would have some idea of what is happeningnin the ballgame. In so many words, I think Andy should be looked out for, Sincerely, Ivan Allen, Jr. IAJr:am
