Alexander Adair Realty and Loan Company 56 Peachtree Street Atlanta, Georgia 30301 Dear Bill: I certainly appreciate your letter of December 6th regarding the SWAP meeting last Thursday. I should like to thank you for your efforts to be completely fair in this situation. With best wishes for the Holiday Season, I am Sincerely yours, Ivan Allen, Jr .

GEORGIA 30301 -, I December 6, 196? /\.,\\ The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: ~ Q~ . 1~; ~ ~ ~ ~ I would like to take this opportunity toe ess my ap ciation the very fine talk you gave at the SWAP Meeting last Thursd • I felt your remarks were very appropriate and were exactly what the people in that area needed to hear. I am a lifelong resident of West End and Cascade Heights, and I mentioned to Jack Adair recently of my concern for that area. I believe he mentioned this to you. My concern is not only for Cascade and West End but for the fact that the people moving out of that area are moving out of the city of Atlanta, and in a lot of cases out of Fulton County, thinking that by doing this they will leave the integration problem behind them. I have attended most of the SWAP Meetings and got involved in a racial problem in our own church, Audubon Forest Methodist. From my experience in these two areas, I had an opportunity to discuss this overall problem with a great number of people in our neighborhood. As I mentioned to Jack, I intended to get in touch with you to discuss the feelings of the people in the area, but unfortunately _I never got around to it. Apparently, from the remarks you made you are very aware of the feelings of this area. It concerns me that so many of the people blame the City Administration for the problems of Cascade Heights, not only your administration, but also Bill Hartsfield's. My experiences in this problem go back to the time when several of my friends were forced to move from the Mozley Park area. During the recent discussions, I have tried to convince the people that I have talked to that this has been a natural movement of the negros from the West Side on into the Southwest section, rather than a deliberate plan of the City Administration. It is true that it is much more difficult for a colored family to obtain a home loan in other parts of Atlanta, and, in my opinion, this is part of �The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. iDecember 6, 1967 Page 2 the overall problem we are facing, rather than a deliberate attempt on the part of the City Administration to establish the Southwest section as the colored part of town. I think it is incumbent upon us who live in the Cascade area to publicize and sell the rest of the city on the fine residential area that we have, in spite of the integration. If we can hold out long enough for people's prejudice to be worn down and their thinking changed on this matter, I believe we will have helped to establish an integrated city, rather than an all negro city as the trend certainly now seems to be. Being a native Atlantan, I have grown up with the prejudice against living in an integrated neighborhood. IDuring the past year, after meeting the negros moving into Cascade Heights, my thinking has changed. This has also been true of a number of my friends. There also have been people moving into the area without this prejudice and others wanting to live in an integrated neighborhood. I believe these factors coupled with the, so far, successful integration of Southwest High School can go a long way toward maintaining a successfully integrated city. We will need help from the churches, business community, school administration, and city politicians. Any attention and help you can give us in this area will be greatly appreciated. If I can be of any help to you in this regard, please do not hesitate to call me. Very truly yours, &~a143.215.248.55 W. M.

Housewives with budgets began to patronize bootleg m argarine vendors. In the manner that liquor dealers will build along highways just outside a dr y county or state, margarine dealers m ade their goods ava ilable near the Wisconsin line.

  • Text: EDITORIALS 18 Atlanta and Ho'Using MAYOR IVAN Allen's effort to replace 17,000 slum housing units with good low - cost units has run into near - sightedness in the Board of Aldermen. Lt also is being mired in old discriminatory practices by construction, sales, rental and lending institutions in the housing field. More and more it is becoming evident that Atlanta must tackle its housing problems as a whole. If nothing else indicates that, then what is happening in Milwaukee should. Milwaukee is having demonstrations, which sometimes are breaking into violence, because it has not faced up to housing discrimin·ation. Louisville not long ago had a serious period of deadlock and unrest for the same reason. Atlanta cannot avoid this unless it faces the problem. "' THE MAYOR'S "CRASH" program on housing is directed not toward bhe discrimination problem but simply toward the shortage of units. Giving this No. 1 priority in the city's affairs last November, he set a goal of 16,800 low-eost units by 1971. Within that goal was an interim target of 9,800 units during 1967 and 1968. At first the response appeared to be good. By May, the mayor's Housing Resources Committee reported that 7,264 units were "in sight," with more bhan half of these in the "firm" category and the rest marked "probable." "' BUT EVEN THEN THE housing committee was cautious. It said that there was "little reason to assume an optimistic attitude toward future efforts," and added: "At this time combinations of federal policies, zoning problems, land costs, code requirements and general un, cez-!ainty pertaining to the program have se- - - __.._ ,, Zll · ££ . _·8upU!l!d AS\?;) 'lS'BJ JO .i .

  • Text: April 22, 1967 Mayor Ivan Allen Board of Aldermen City Hall 68 Mitchell Street, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Sirs: It is past time for pressure on the Southwest section of Atlanta to be taken off the home owners. Most of these very fine citi2ens built homes in this section planning to live there a lifetime and many have been residents for over twenty years. Their homes are in the $20,000 to $50,000 range and the neighborhoods are beautifully kept. From this section clllliles some of the outstanding citizens of Atlanta and Georgia, but if city hall continues to ignore the integration, or resegregation, of this one section of Atlanta it will soon affect the entire city. The neighborhoods will no longer be integrated; they will be all Negro and the former home owners will have moved entirely out of Fulton county •••••• as many say they will do if they have to give up their homes. How many of you have taken the time, or cared enough, to ride out in this lovely section to see the for sale signs that fill each street? Have you given any thought as to the far-reaching affect of this fear? For sale signs should be banned from in front of all homes. Most residents who would like to stay, even with some integration, do not wish to be the only white resident on a street and some discussion with both whites and Negroes should come from city hall. Other areas of Atlanta should be opened to these Ne groes seeking homes in all white neighborhoods. Pressure tactics are being used by real estate .companies and more and more signs are appearing in front of homes. If the present trend continues, Atlanta will soon be another Washington, D. C. and the prestige of Atlanta will disappear. It should be .in the interest of all good citizens of Atlanta, who are interested in the general welfare of Atlanta, to try to help stabilize the Southwest section - Cascade Heights, West Manor, Audubon Forest, King's Forest, etc •• Some encouragement from the mayor and councilmen of this city would certainly be most helpful and encouraging to these citizens struggling under pressure. If these people do not receive any help from this direction, then the Northside could easily undergo the same transition in the future and then the feelings and frustrations of the Southwest citizens will be better understood by others in Atlanta. This is an urgent matter and we earnestly .seek your full cooperation. Thank you.

  • Text: SN ' " May 22, 19 67 Does the law offer John Q. Citizen any protection whatsoever from unscrupulous real estate operators? Will Atlanta become another Washington and, if so, who will pay the taxes? A case in point is the Cascade Heights area. Someone, for reasons known only to himself, is approached by or gets in touch with an operator who sells real estate primarily to Negroes. A sale is made and the rumors start, some of them probably planted. People panic and then other operators zero in on the area and start a flood of letters (see attached), phone calls and knocks on the door. It is a frightening thing to see the reaction of the people. Carloads of Negroes cruise the area. One more neighbo ~hood has received the "kiss of death." When the word get:s out, it is impossible to sell except to Negroes. Check the Red Bud Lane section and see for yourself. My neighborhood, a different one from that above, has just received the kiss that can bring disaster. We are trying desperately to hold it together. In our ~jsa, 1 an all-white neighborhood, the ~ ale was made at midnight, literally, two weeks ago last Saturday. Most of us move into a particular area because we like the neighborhood, we know the people, or as a matter of economics. Some are retired people with limited incomes; some are middle-aged who, after rearing their children, were looking forward to a more leisurely life; many are young couples who have just purchased their first home. In the latter case, particularly, it has taken all they can rake and scrape to make the down payment. Now, with their homes deflated, what are they oing to do fo r money in order to make a fresh start somewhere else? We, too, should have a choice in selecting our neighbors.
