  • Text: 189 FOURTH ST., N.W. ATLANTA 13, GEORGIA TR. 2-7642 AT GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY March 11 , 1963 Th e Honorable Iv an Allen , Mayor City of Atlan ta City Hall Atlanta 3, Georgia Dear Mayo r Allen ; I am writing to comme nd yo u fo r yo ur for t hright leaders h ip at t he alde r man i c board mee t ing on Mond ay, March 4 conerni ng the resolu t i ons of alderman Farris . I fe el it i s nec es s ary t hat definite ac tion be taken in the area of Negro -White rel a tions and it appears t o me the five resol ut i ons should help to establish bet t er communi c ation between the races and enable diffic ul t problems to be resolved . I am particularly glad to see your immediate re s ponse to Judge ~hitmar'·s ruling by removing t h e barri cades on Peyton and Har l an roads . I felt they were harmf u l t o the general feeli ng of pers ons j_mmediately involved and not in t he best int erests of Atlanta as a who le. I would strongly endorse the study to be made by the City Planning department in the hope that additional \ and may be made available f)r housing within the City . If the statistics I have seen are correct, they show a proportionately small land area available for Negroes, and I would encourage th~ Addermanic Board to make more housing land open for Negro building . Finally, it has come to my attention that there is some concern as to whether or not tile City will open its swimm ing pools this summer, especially if they are noc segregated . Let me strongly urge you to keep the pools open to all who would desire to use them. I have been proud to see Atlanta handle the schools, colleges, movies, and lunch counters as the racial bars have fallen; and I think we could also handle any situation which might arise at the pools. Caution and planning would be essential to carrying this out, but I am confident that the people of Atlanta would accept with understanding your leadership at this point. My wife joins me in expressing the sentiment of this letter. Sincerely, J>l»\_ ~ cc: Mr. Sam Massell, Jr. Mr. Milton G. Farris I Lon B. Chesnutt, Associate Director Wes ley Foundation at Georgia Tech �

  • Text: Mr. Ralph Moore Chairman of the Committee on Appeal for Human Rights Atlanta University Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Moore: May I acknowledge receipt of your wire of December 22, 1962 which reads as follows: The Students of Atlanta University feel as if you have made a great mistake 1n supporting the establishment of an Atlanta wall acrossPey-ton and Harlan Roads. In reply to a request of the All Citizens Committee on Better Citizens Planning, we ovill supply 175 picketers per day for the Westend business area. We will also stage several mass demonstrations at the Atlanta City Hall with no less than 1500 students. This action will focus the eyes of the world on the Atlanta City Wall. We do not want Atlanta to have this type of publicity. Therefore we encourage you to remove the wall and save the good image of Atlanta while there is still time." First, this is to advise you that at the request of Mr. Virkgil Copeland, President of the Southwest Civic Association, I have asked reyresentatives of the following four groups to form a citizens committee to discuss the problems confa,onting the Peyton-Forest, Harlan Road area situation. Mr. Q. V. Williamson has advised me that the citizens Committee of Better Plannning will represent him in his capacity as Co-chairman of the Atlanta Negro Voters League. I would thank that any action prior to the deliberations of this committee and its recommendations would be precipitious and harmful to our best efforts . Second, I would like for the students of Atlanta University to have f ull knowledge aind acquaint themselves with the overall problem and with the complete record to date which is as follows: The Peyton - Harlan Road problem is the 52nd area or street to undergo nei~hborhood expansion, penetration or encorachment since the first of the year . The record is almost flawless insofar as the protection of the rights of the Negro citizen is concerned. I am enclosing a list of the 51 str eets on �which this problem has bean handled to the complete satisfaction of the Negro Community to date this year. I hope that the students with t h eir ability to analyze factual conditions will study carefully this record, and I would hope that they would express their complete satisfaction and accord with the record of this administration. I am certain that the matter having been handled so as to protect the rights of all persons in the first fifty-one instances wou ld raise the question o f w h y it is not b e i ng handled the same w ay in the Peyton-Harlan Road in s tance . again, can be factual and «a:m definite. The a ns w er , The Peyton Road incident, consisting mainly of Fielding Lane agitation, is an a r tificial, unnatural condition created by unscrupulous pa rti es, both w hite and Ne g ro w ho have attempte d through une t hical, di s loya l and false misrepresentations to panic the residents o f an established community . To pr event thi s con dition, I ha ve pre v iously worke d w ith the Empir e R e al Es t a t e B oa rd a n d a citizen s committee compose d o f the W est end B u s i nessmen' s association and the E m pire Real Estate Board. In spite o f a previous record o f excellent c ooperation, from thes e two bodie s, i t wa s impos s i ble to pr event this arti fica l bargining of land to be stoppe d . May I invit e your a ttention to t h e fact that the closing of P e yton and H arland Roa d s is in i nconvenience to m o stly whi t e c i t izens a nd p r actically n o N egro cit izens. It do es not pr event access or egress into any area of town, nor does it limit any right s of the ixJm:.oix individual citizen fr o m purcha s e o r s a l e or oth er fundamenta l liberties. It has merel y served as a warning to unscrupulous real estate deal ers that Atlanta will not tol erate under the g uise of " race d escrimination" the d estruc tion of fundamental val ues amongst any of its citizens . -2- �I would hope that you would study this problem carefully and I want to as sure you that if there is any additional information you desire that I will be glad to supply it. The record as outlined above shows that the rights of all citizens have been protected without question in 51 out of 52 instances and now there is a question mark as to the 52nd instance. Atlanta's reputation has been built by those who have carried out the aforegone record. It is my sincere hope that the students of Atlanta University will not destroy this record by any unusual demontrations at this time. Should you ignore the aboe request and feel that you must picket for the sake of picketing, then b e assured that the rights of the indiv idual in picketing will be zelously guarded by the law enforcement body of this city. Should you wish to picket the city hall for the purpose of National publicity, then, if you will let me know, I will be g l ad to receive you on the city hall steps at an appropriate time. I iv hope you will tell the students of Atlanta University that our record is outstanding and that I hope they will not destroy it with any unnecessary or overt action. �

  • Text: -v .. September 27 , 1962 Dear Friends, I amt king the liberty of addressing you collectively due to the press of time. I have been advised by the State Department that approximately $700.00 of American and foreign currency which was unidentifiable, was recovered from the air crash at Orly Air Base. 1/ Normally such funds are deposited by the General Accounting Office into the United States Treasury. However , due to the circumstances involved, it is the feeling of - the American Embassy in Paris that these funds should be used as a memorial to the Atlantians who lost their lives in that crash. It has been suggested that this money be contributed to the Atlanta Art Association Memorial Fund. I would appreciate hearing from you as to the distribution you wish made and if the suggestion of the Art Association Fund is agreeable, l will be pleased to ask the Embassy to appropriate the $700,00 to this worthy cause, Sincerely yours , Ivan Allen, Jr. - �

As you know by now, the negroes are trying everything to cause panic and unrest in our neighborhood. The negro realty agents of Calloway Realty Co., Alexander & Associates, Fuller Realty Co. and others are using such tactics as calling everyone in a block, saying they have several homes in the area listed for s a le. The y are riding through the area in large numbe r , stopping and pointing at different homes. There has also been some seen in the area in the early morning hours, two to three A. M. There are no through streets in the area and we see no reason for this nonsense. All the residents of the are a (Peyton and Utoy Forrest) h ave signed an agreement not to sell to negroes, but the pressure and tactics used by the negroes have stopped the builders from building in the area, also people who have been transferred in business are unable to sell their homes because of these tactics.
