  • Text: 2643 Humphries Street East Point, Georgia October 4, 1966 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Mr. Mayor: Thursday evening, September 29, 1966, the Atlanta Journal printed on page two an article attributed to you regarding the election of Lester Maddox as the Democratic nominee for Governor. On As a private citizen and elected public official, you are entitled to your opinion but I must take exception to both your attitude and published statement. September 28, 1966, I exercised my constitutional right as a citizen and voted in the run-off election. You have now intimated that I am either ignorant, prejudiced, a reactionary or a Republican. I am none of these, and I have taken your choice of words to be a personal insult to my judgment and freedom to vote as I see fit. On It appears to me that a written apology is in order unless you can substantiate your allegations with more than an opinion. I anxiously await your reply. Walla McDaniel �

Dear Sir: I am so very dis appointed in you, as I knew you in your work with Boy Scouts . My opinion of you was such a good one and I thought you to be a good Christian gentleman. I think your work would be harmful to Boy Scouts n ow. To my knowledge, I have never met nor seen Mr. Lester Maddox . I heard part of hi s s peech over WSB, Tuesday before election. I am sure you heard him or knew what he said. I h ave talk ed to a number of people today. Some of them are as fine Christian people as I've ever kno\-m . After he aring you, t hese pe ople all say t hey will endorse what Lester Maddox said . One Christian l ady told me that she and her husband were a t a ball game in Atlan ta several nights ago. Two men and a woman on seat behind t hem were dr i nking with r owdy disturbance. She said t hey could not en joy the game as we ll as other pe ople who were seated around t hem . The woman who sat between t he two men went to the re st room. Whi le she was gone the men planned s ome lies to tell their wives. These men were bragging of their family and pr ofessional standing . One of the men was an eye specialist . Another patient from Bowdon was in my office today and said almost the same thing happened to he and his wife except t he par t~ was in fr ont of t hem. I heard a salesman who lives in At lanta tell a group in my office a few weeks ago that he personally knew Mr. Maddox and that he was one of the finest Christian gentlemen he knew and t hat Mr. Maddox would get down any time to help an unfortunate up. I wish you could visit the Carroll County Prison with me and see the results of what has happened to homes as a result of wrong leadership. �DR. D.S. REESE 4 01 PEOPLES BANK BUILD I NG CARROLL TON , GA. (2) Do you consider it honorable to endorse what is going on there? Are you pr oud of ·what you said about the good people who voted for Lester Maddox. I don't think you and the Atlanta paper s have any ri ght to call the one third million good people who voted for Mr. Maddox such low types as you are doing. M.D. DSR:ih �

  • Text: Atlant a, Georgi a October 1 , 1966 Mr . Ivan Allen, Mayor City Hall 68 Mitchell Street , Atlant a , Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: No doubt you have al ready heard of the people ' s unfavorable reaction t o your speech on T. v., l ast Thursday night , agains t our newl y- elected Gover nor , cal l i ng the people who voted for him, 11I GNORANT 11 • This wi ll not s oon be forgotten. I r ode the bus into Atla nta, Fr i day morning , and t he t opic of conversation, among nzy- f ellow- passengers , was your speech and your derogatory r emarks agai nst Mr . Maddox . One woman passenger, who appeared to be i n her middle seventies, s a i d "I n all nzy- l ife, I have never seen as much venom in a manr s eyes as you had in yours during your speech agai nst our choice f or t he next Govenor of Georg_iaV As in the case of the Atlanta Newspapers, w. s. B., every knock, the people reacted the s ame - EVERY KNOCK TO MR. MADDOX WAS A BOOST . If f ormer Mayor Hart sfield saw all the hat red , bi t terness and jealousy displayed during your speech, he will change hi s mind about 11 THE PEOPLE OF ATLANTA BEING TOO BUSY TO HATE. 11 Mr . Mayor , instead of your worrying abput the seal of our great state of Georgia being tarnished, by the people• s choice for our nex~· Governor of the s t at e of Georgia, you had better be worrying about the tarnish to you, due to that unjust speech you made against Mr. Maddox and the people of the state of Georgi a , which ,u ll not rub off , even if you used one of Mr . Maddo~ 1 s pick handles. Mr . Mayor, you should have 1 t Martin Luther King make his own speec\J. if you intend to ever run f or public office again, because the speech in question neither won you a.ey vot es nor influenced the people . You left out part of Martin ' s s peech - the part where he said t hat Mr . Maddox •s being elected Governor made him sorry that he is a Georgian. Thousands of Georgians share his sentiments - for we, t oo , are sorry th the is a Georgian. I have never had the pleasure of meeting M;r . Maddox, but I feel sure that he is a Christian, standing up for what we all know in our hearts is right. Mr . Maddox is the Horatio Alger-type , having worked hard all his life to make this world a better place in which to live. I have always voted for Mr . Maddox, and will continue to do so. Mr. Allen, you have shown the firemen of the city of Atlanta no consideration whatsoever. All the firemen I know have to work at t wo jobs to earn a l i ving, but you wouldn•t know anything about that, would you? �-2- Happy fishing to you and Martin Luther, come voting day, NOVEMBER 8th. Mr . Maddox will have enough votes without yours and Martin•s to win. I would like to sign off, for now, with this little poem: 11 THERE IS A DESTINY THAT MAKES US BROTHERS NONE GOES HIS -AY ALONE. ALL THAT VfE SEND INTO THE LIVES OF OTHERS COMES BACK INTO OUR OV!N. 11 Think about this poem when dealing with our city firemen, won•t you? Sincerely \~ ,) ~ ~ LMrs.: Grace Rice Atlanta , Georgia ( �

  • Text: September 30, 1966 Mr. Ivan Allen, Mayor City of Atlanta Atleijita, Georgia Dear Mr. Mayor: May I take this opportunity to express to you an opinion of your speech made last night to the television audience of WSB-TV. What small respect for you that I had became nil with the remarks ymi made to the public that night. For your information, it was not the "stupid" people of Georgia who voted for Lester Maddox and elected himthe democratic nominee for Governor, as in essence you did imply that those who voted for Maddox were stupid. In my opi~ion, and the opinion of many others, it is you, Mr. Mayor, the Atlanta newspapers and the WSB-TV officials who are the more stupid of the flock. Had you left well enough alone, and sat quietly in your padded seats, the voting majority of this state would not have voted previously, and would not :srote in the General Election for Maddox. It riles people (stupid or otherwise) to be told by a public service organizat ion or a "public servant" what to do, and that my dear mayor, is exactly why the old proverbial "worm turned". There are many smart, intelligent and fine people in this state who voted for Lester Maddox. It is not the same in Georgia as when Eugene Talmadge ran for Governor and was elected by the old county unit.:-system.. People know what they want, and they don 1 t want you or any other public official telling them they are too stupid or ignorant to know what they want. You were elected as mayor of the city of Atlanta by :aome of these same stupid voters. What s wrong1 Are ymi perhaps a little jealous of the man you trampled in that election, as being elected to a higher office? It could possi.bl~ mean that in the very near future you might have to call on the governor ~f Georgia for help in quieting down a little skirmish such as the one we had in Atlanta not long ago. Wouldn 1 t it be rue to come down off your soap box and take a long leek in that direction? As a voter, (and perhaps one of the clan as labled "stupid'~ I would like to say to you, aw the mayor of our fair city," I really believe that you have 11 mest in your nest" .. Good luck to you in your future enaaavors. Sincerely yours, ~. ;t>-U ~ L) From one who did not vote for Maddox, but will the very next chance I geto =3 �
