BE V I NS Traffic En gin ee r The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the City of Atlanta 206 City Hal 1 Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: In answer to your request for information concerning our proposed activities in the area of the Warren Jackson School, we should like to give you the following report. During the past three weeks, members of our staff have discussed this situation with Mrs. Smart, Principal of the School; Mr. J. Lewis Cook , Safety Director of the Board of Education; and Lieutenant Forrester, of the Atlanta Police Department. As a result of these discussions, we have done a substantial amount of signing in the vicinity of the school. Since the school is located approximately 1000 feet north of Mount Paran Road , we did not feel that it was necessary or desirable to reduce the speed limit to 25 MPH from the presently existing 30 MPH. We have, however , installed signs on Mount Paran Road on each approach to the school driveway which warn drivers with the message SCHOOL CHILDREN IN ROADWAY. A recent count of the children walking on Mount Paran Road and entering the Wa rren Jackson School at the Mount Pa ran Road driveway indicates that a relatively small number of 20 to 30 students are entering the school property at this point . Although the letter and petitions which accompanied your memorandum to this depa rtment r e f e rre d only to a request tha t a police office r be assigned to this location , we felt that you would like to know what actions we have taken on r e ques t s which have been ma de directly to us . At the present time , we do not have plans for additional work in the vicinity of this school . I f you de s i re any additional informat i on conc erning this matte r, pl eas e f ee l f re e t o call on us .

September 14, 1967 Chief Herbert Jenkins Atlanta Police Department 175 Decatur Street, S. E. Atlanta~ Georgia Dear Mr. Jenkins: I want to report an incident that happened Wednesday night about 9:00 p.m., September 13, which occurred on Gordon Road at the railroad underpass just west of the intersection of Lynhurst in the event you wish to alert your patrolmen to events of this kind. My wife and I and friends had dinner at the Plantation Restauran t in Marietta .and were proceeding homeward through Access Highway , Bolton Road by Fulton County Airport, Gordon Road, Lynhurst, and Sewell to Cascade Heights. When we approached the underpass west of Lynhurst, but still some di st_a nce away , I saw five or so young Negroes sixteen to eighteen years old, or thereabou ts, standing on the right hand side of the street at the abutment to the railroad b ridge. They were doing nothing that appeared to be out of the ordinary, but were apparently were t a lking and having fun. Just as I became even with them, we were startled by a terrific report which sounded as though a gun had been fired inside the car. I ha d seen no one make any move and no flash from an e xp losion was seen so assumed that the boys had thrown a giant firecracker under the car where it exploded. There appearing nothing more serious a t that time, I did not stop but proceeded on homeward. After visiting with our friends for an hour or two,l!!Y wife and I went on home where we then examined the car because someone had e xpre ssed an opinion that something struck the car, which we did not immediately confirm. Upon e xamination under · light it is c lear now that the e xplosion was the dischar ge of a gun, and the car was actual ly struck by the bullet and that from the trajectory th e bulle t ca me �,-- B. McDONALD DOSTER 1414 BOULEVARD LORRAINE, 5 . W. ATLANTA 11, GA. from overhead on the railroad bridge, from which someone must have fired the gun. The bullet, from directly overhead, was fired at about a 40 degree angle, and it struck the left rear door window just above the center. Being struck from overhead, the bullet merely glanced off the glass and struck a curved portion of the metal door at the base of the glass where the curve caused the bullet to riccochet outward. The glass was not broken, but was scarred by the impact·and the metal was not pierced, but was scored by the riccochet. It is obvious that someone was making an attempt on the life of some unsuspecting person who would drive under the bridge. That person could have been me if the gun had been fired a split second sooner and six inches to my right, where it would have pierced the windshield directly in front of my face. I saw no one on the bridge above, and having proceeded as far forward as I had, I saw no flash, but the circumstances wer~ easy to read. Very truly yours, B. M. Doster cc: Mayor .Ivan.

SCHELL ATTORNEY 1726 FULTON AT LAW NATIONAL BANK BUILDING ATLANTA , GEORGIA 30303 523-6001 July 14, 1967 Honorable Ivan Allen Mayor, City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Mayor: I enclose herewith a copy of a letter that I have written on behalf of the Executive Board of the Joel Chandler Harris Memorial Association to Eliza K. Paschall. One of the salient reasons for the enclosed reply to the letter of Mrs. Paschall has been the receipt of threats by several members of the staff at the Wren's Nest that it would be stoned or burned unless its visitation policies were changed. I think it rather disgraceful that these dedicated ladies, who are attempting to maintain a memorial to one of the South's outstanding literary figures, should be subjected to such threats and abuse. Acts and conduct of this kind and character do more to promote friction between the races in Southwest Atlanta than can be counteracted by various organizations that are attempting to peacefully integrate the area. On behalf of these good ladies, I call on you, as Mayor of the City of Atlanta, for such police protection as may be necessary to maintain the dignity of their person and property. I am taking the liberty of sending a copy of this letter to Honorable Herbert Jenkins, Chief of Police. Kindest personal regards. Very truly yo? STS : ebV cc: Hon. Herbert Jenkins ~~ . Sidney T.

BE V I NS Traffic En gin ee r The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the City of Atlanta 206 City Hal 1 Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: In answer to your request for information concerning our proposed activities in the area of the Warren Jackson School, we should like to give you the following report. During the past three weeks, members of our staff have discussed this situation with Mrs. Smart, Principal of the School; Mr. J. Lewis Cook , Safety Director of the Board of Education; and Lieutenant Forrester, of the Atlanta Police Department. As a result of these discussions, we have done a substantial amount of signing in the vicinity of the school. Since the school is located approximately 1000 feet north of Mount Paran Road , we did not feel that it was necessary or desirable to reduce the speed limit to 25 MPH from the presently existing 30 MPH. We have, however , installed signs on Mount Paran Road on each approach to the school driveway which warn drivers with the message SCHOOL CHILDREN IN ROADWAY. A recent count of the children walking on Mount Paran Road and entering the Wa rren Jackson School at the Mount Pa ran Road driveway indicates that a relatively small number of 20 to 30 students are entering the school property at this point . Although the letter and petitions which accompanied your memorandum to this depa rtment r e f e rre d only to a request tha t a police office r be assigned to this location , we felt that you would like to know what actions we have taken on r e ques t s which have been ma de directly to us . At the present time , we do not have plans for additional work in the vicinity of this school . I f you de s i re any additional informat i on conc erning this matte r, pl eas e f ee l f re e t o call on us . ERSJr/fd �

Jenldns Atlanta Police Department Atlanta , Georgia Dear Chief Jenkins : After a letter from Mr. Edmund W . -Hughes of J uly 7, 1967 , of which you have a copy, and my letter t o you of July 17, 1967, I fe lt that the matter of using the taxi lane to pick up private passengers at the Atlanta Stadium after stadium events had been settled. However, I was again prevented from doing so after a baseball game a few days ago. As I stated in my last letter to you, I appreciated your consideration of my request and your help in making it possible for us to use this lane, but apparently your patrolmen have not received instructions to allow this. Since I am told on the one hand that such a thing is now permissible and am told on the other hand that is is not permissible, I can certainly E?ee why the patrolmen are confused. Since it apparently has already been deoided that this lane should be and is available to private vehicles to use after stadium events for picking up private passengers, I would certainly appreciate your informing your officers of this fact or else giving me something in writing which I may show them. It is embarrassing to be stopped in the middle of the street repeatedly after being given assurance that what I am doing is legal. I would appreciate your consideration and help in this matter. Respectfully, I// ? ; ,(; ~~1 William R. Fisher, M.D. WRF/lp Copies: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. William C. Bartholomay Edmund w. Hughes �

Atlanta~ Georgia Dear Mr. Jenkins: I want to report an incident that happened Wednesday night about 9:00 p.m., September 13, which occurred on Gordon Road at the railroad underpass just west of the intersection of Lynhurst in the event you wish to alert your patrolmen to events of this kind. My wife and I and friends had dinner at the Plantation Restauran t in Marietta .and were proceeding homeward through Access Highway , Bolton Road by Fulton County Airport, Gordon Road, Lynhurst, and Sewell to Cascade Heights. When we approached the underpass west of Lynhurst, but still some di st_a nce away , I saw five or so young Negroes sixteen to eighteen years old, or thereabou ts, standing on the right hand side of the street at the abutment to the railroad b ridge. They were doing nothing that appeared to be out of the ordinary, but were apparently were t a lking and having fun. Just as I became even with them, we were startled by a terrific report which sounded as though a gun had been fired inside the car. I ha d seen no one make any move and no flash from an e xp losion was seen so assumed that the boys had thrown a giant firecracker under the car where it exploded. There appearing nothing more serious a t that time, I did not stop but proceeded on homeward. After visiting with our friends for an hour or two,l!!Y wife and I went on home where we then examined the car because someone had e xpre ssed an opinion that something struck the car, which we did not immediately confirm. Upon e xamination under · light it is c lear now that the e xplosion was the dischar ge of a gun, and the car was actual ly struck by the bullet and that from the trajectory th e bulle t ca me �,-- B. McDONALD DOSTER 1414 BOULEVARD LORRAINE, 5 . W. ATLANTA 11, GA. from overhead on the railroad bridge, from which someone must have fired the gun. The bullet, from directly overhead, was fired at about a 40 degree angle, and it struck the left rear door window just above the center. Being struck from overhead, the bullet merely glanced off the glass and struck a curved portion of the metal door at the base of the glass where the curve caused the bullet to riccochet outward. The glass was not broken, but was scarred by the impact·and the metal was not pierced, but was scored by the riccochet. It is obvious that someone was making an attempt on the life of some unsuspecting person who would drive under the bridge. That person could have been me if the gun had been fired a split second sooner and six inches to my right, where it would have pierced the windshield directly in front of my face. I saw no one on the bridge above, and having proceeded as far forward as I had, I saw no flash, but the circumstances wer~ easy to read. Very truly yours, B. M. Doster cc: Mayor .Ivan. Allen, Jr. City Hall . Atlanta, Georgia �
