ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30303 October 23, 1967 The Honorable Ivan Allen Mayor of the City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: .i\,~ May I add my congratulations (to what I hope have been many) at your decision to press the issue of \ consolidation. As you well know from our conversations, the CIP Workshops, and the "Atlanta" article I am 100 per cent behind this reordering of our metropolitan governments. If there is anyway I can be of help to you in moving this effort forward, I am eager and willing. Our firm has been deeply involved in this area in recent months through our work with Savannah-Chatham county, the Muscle Shoals Council of Governments, and the District of Columbia. We are gaining some measure of expertise and a deep understanding of the problems of governmental restructuring. It seems inappropriate to us because of our past work for the City and my publically-known views for our firm to make a proposal for the work now being contemplated in study ing consolidation. However, we are ready to provi d e any advice and assistance you might deem helpful in identifying appropriate firms to carry out the work. To that end , I have reviewed the qualifications of some of our competitors ( a difficult task to accomplish without b ias) to see who might do the Cit y and County a good �r I The Honorable Ivan Allen October 23, 1967 Page 2. job. One organization which you might consider is the Midwest Research Institute. I asked one of their staff to send me some information on their activit ie s and abil i ties in gov ernmenta l organization, a copy of which is enclosed. If information on other firms such as this would be of interest to y ou, I will be happy to assemble it and p a ss it on. Finally , let me. again offer my time and the firm's time to assist y ou on this project in any matter y ou might suggest . With b est wi s h es , l d T. Ho t o n GTH/am Enc . �

  • Text: r I By T OPICn JA 'UD T so: ,, Post Office Box 178 Chicago{ Illinois 60690_ THE AMERICAN SUNBATHING ASSOCIATION, INC. Mays Landing, New Jersey ~ Printed in U. S. A. by A.S . A: ~ �By Secretary of Fraternity Snoqualmie Club I think that as a rule the husband first becomes interested in nudism. The wife generally holds back a little and sometimes quite a bit. It is easier for t he male to throw off his co-called modesty, and shyness. He is a little more used to seeing others c,f his own sex in the nude - in sports, on the job, etc. I think that women are reared more guardedly and instilled much more with the idea of the shame of exposing the nude body. We have so many inhibitions and complexes to get rid of. Both men and women. Nudism usually starts at home. First the husband grows lax in dress - he runs around in shorts for a while before dressing - or from bath to 'bedr oom with nothing on - or maybe he sits and reads t he paper a whiJe that way. The children start to copy him - they just naturally like to go nude anyway. You fuss at your husband for setting the example - it just isn't decent to let the children sec you that way; you fuss at the children to put their clothes on. He likes the freedom of movement without clothes and knows the children do too, and tells you to let them alone and let them enjoy themselves. He coaxes you to try it. But you are horrified - the children will lose r espect for their mother if they see her r unning around like that. And besides, what would the neighbors think? But after a while you catch yourself going from the bathroom to the l>edroom quickly to get something you forgot or you dash to answer the telephone in the nude and one of the children catches you. And the child doesn't seem to be horrified at all - you are the one horrified and ashamed of your nude body. But still - you don't th:nk it is right for decent people to act that way the body is sinful and shameful and should be kept covered so as not to excite thoughts or give the chil

I congratulate you and the other insurance excutives highly for your brave and courageous committment of goodness from your hearts. I am praying that one day in the near future you will also be proud of your committments. It is not easy to give financial backing to a project when you know the risks outweigh the economic feasibility of said project. The s pecific project or projects are more than needed in most of American metropolitan cities, as low rent housing in our d e t e r:iorating and pest ridden cities will accept your program without a ny questions . This is one of the finest things that could have happene d to the slums. Yet you have done exactly what I have been pushing som e of our large foundations 1 and corporations to do, especially the labor or ganiza tions (union). See enclos e d letter number one. The banking institutions are doing a swell job considering the many re stri c tion s that they have to contend with for the best interest of all concerned. I fee l t hat the lar ge labor uni ons -c ould give m o r e consi d eration t o t he h ousi ng situation in our cit ie s . I b e lieve the union h as m o re dues paying members t han any other national o rganization in America. I have great praise s for our h onor able p r es ident of the U nit e d States , L.B. J. for pushing, and t r ying to g e t privat e enterpris es involv e d i n t he crash-housing program. Our own mayo r, the Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., is doing a marvelous job in getting t he message through to both private and governmental agencies. , i. e; how very badly we need decent housing in Atlanta for all people, especially in the Negro areas in which is far less than up to par with the rest of the city. SOUTH FULTON'S FINEST COUNTRY CLUB �Page -2to: Mr. Gilbert Fitzhugh September 20, 1967 We are forming "The Gilmere's Urban Development Corporation" with a proposed capitalization of 65-million dollars. All we need is a top-heavy underwriter or some semi-top-heavy subscribers. We already have projects on the drawing board to exceed 110-million in community developments, about 75-million of this will be strictly for multi-family units in the low and medium income bracket, and of course, some of the most luxurious in the world. Our prime objective is to build and re-build deteriorated sections of Atlanta, not only the residential sections, but the business and downtown area as well. We also anticipate developing parks, schools, and other recreational facilities for Atlanta area. Decent housing and adequate housing alone will not solve all the social ·and economic problems of our slum areas, but providing decent and adequate housing for all people, it will help to remedy the situation by 50 percent, leaving the need of education about 25 percent, employment 25 percent, and I do mean adult education; i. e; teaching occupational skills, and trades. Sincerely, I do believe you and your colleages have given a hypo in the arm of the poor housing situation, and I just hope the Hell others will follow suit, not necessarily investing one billion dollars, but just a few million from ten or fifteen of the larg e st c orporations will cur e many, many, slum headaches. This will be something that one must consider not from the profit's point of view, but · rather a break-even point of view. Again, thanking you and your colleages fo r your sincer es t inter es t and your most needed investment and contributicn to the above program. With kindest regards, and wishing you the most success, I remain Sincerely yours, Francis Gilmere, President FG/ bam encls cc: President L.B. Johnson, Dr. Robert C. Weaver, Secty.

A. by A.S . A: ~ �By Secretary of Fraternity Snoqualmie Club I think that as a rule the husband first becomes interested in nudism. The wife generally holds back a little and sometimes quite a bit. It is easier for t he male to throw off his co-called modesty, and shyness. He is a little more used to seeing others c,f his own sex in the nude - in sports, on the job, etc. I think that women are reared more guardedly and instilled much more with the idea of the shame of exposing the nude body. We have so many inhibitions and complexes to get rid of. Both men and women. Nudism usually starts at home. First the husband grows lax in dress - he runs around in shorts for a while before dressing - or from bath to 'bedr oom with nothing on - or maybe he sits and reads t he paper a whiJe that way. The children start to copy him - they just naturally like to go nude anyway. You fuss at your husband for setting the example - it just isn't decent to let the children sec you that way; you fuss at the children to put their clothes on. He likes the freedom of movement without clothes and knows the children do too, and tells you to let them alone and let them enjoy themselves. He coaxes you to try it. But you are horrified - the children will lose r espect for their mother if they see her r unning around like that. And besides, what would the neighbors think? But after a while you catch yourself going from the bathroom to the l>edroom quickly to get something you forgot or you dash to answer the telephone in the nude and one of the children catches you. And the child doesn't seem to be horrified at all - you are the one horrified and ashamed of your nude body. But still - you don't th:nk it is right for decent people to act that way the body is sinful and shameful and should be kept covered so as not to excite thoughts or give the chil

  • Text: August 25, 1967 Honorable Dick Lane The House of Representatives 2704 Humphries Street East Point, Georgia Dear Dick:· Thank you for your kind letter of October 23rd. As stated in my talk the other evening, I feel that Atlanta i entitled to the right and opportunity of normal growth and expan ion; thi includes taking into con ideration the needs and desire of the other government in the area. I m not famili r t the present time with the Commi ion's report on the merger of the chool sy tems of Atlanta and Fulton County. l would think, however, that people in Atlanta, who, within themselves, con titut ne rly 80% of the people of Fulton County, hould have the same right as the other ZO% of the citizens of Fulton County. It i my hepe that in the near future meeting of the county commia ioner nd repre entative of city government could be held in order that n ce ary tep could be planned to provid for a detailed profe ion l study of both the need and the beneficial results of a metropolitan government. Until thi is done factually, I m £raid all of u ill be limited in the information we can furni h in r g rd to the questions your iaed. Sincerely, Ivan All n, Jr. IAJr:am �

Ivan Allen, Mayor City of Atlanta, Ga. City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: I take this opportunity to tell you that I found the speech informative and interesting that you delivered to the Fulton County Delegation at the Tech Motel. You mentioned that you would never advocate merger or consolidation without the consent of all areas involved. On the strength of this statement, do I understand that you or your administration would oppose, or at least not support, the Commission's plan to effect Atlanta and Fulton County school systems merger, through abolition of the Atlanta school system? In effect, this plan would deny the citizens outside Atlanta a voice or vote in this matter that so vitally effects and concerns them. So that I might keep the citizens of South Fulton informed, I would like to further inquire why the city of Atlanta, at this time, is interested only in consolidation in Fulton County? I feel, as I am sure you do, that our citizens should be informed on matters that concern them. I would appreciate it if you could take the time from your busy schedule to give to me the requested information so that I may pass it on to my constituents . Sincerely , n.t 11 ~~­ ~ t ne , Rep .
