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 .

Did you get a decent education? Are your children on double
sessions? Are your children in overcrowded classes?
Help protect your children's future. You may have a job, you rn ay be
making a good salary, but what about the 15 black me·n out of every
hundred without a job, while only 2 white men out of every ·hundred
has no job.
ATlA ~rA POUCE BRUTAUTY. Maybe policemen have not be_aten

Disorders on ~gnolia Street
Sunday - October 22, 1967
donday - 0 tober 23, 1967
Dear Sir:
On Sunday night, October 22, 1967, at about 9:30 p.m.,
Captain • c. Bryant called me and stated that a explosive
situation was about to develop at Vine and t1agnolia but
that he thought everything was under control .
I got re dy to go to the area nd just as I was
leaving, I heard on th r help call and fire call in this
area so proceeded to Vine and tagnolia .
I found that Officer J . B. Phillips and oth r
offic re h d arre ted several person
t th t location and
had · d conoidcroble trouble with the s bjects and after
the orre t nd the person had be n transported to j iL,
a consid rable crowd of di orderly r:er ons gathered on
1ognolia Str t between . faple and Vine ond set sever l
fires . The Fire Depart nt w s call d evernl ti~
but
th fir
w re put out ostly bcfor th Fire D partment
arriv d .
Lt. C. J. Perry and Copt·in ry nt w re on the cen
and had Car LO-, 12-B and a wagon patrolling th are . All
of thes w r
nn <l by negro offic r .
he crowd grew nd
beca
ore di orderly, ctting firs nd throwing rocks
nd bottle • The Task lorce head d by Lt . c. B. Dicker on
and about ight p trot en were c lled into th Dr a with
peci l qui
nt, helraet, night ticks nd hotgun to
diapers th crowd . Several other arr ts w r
d , on
a known a it tor by th nm of c, uir, a white fe ale .
In a hort whil, order wa restored . I in tructed
tl
two K-9 truck with driv r
nd the do s in th truck
to p trol th
r
the re t of the ni ht. The stre ta nd
�- 2 -
sidewalks were littered with debris, rocks and broken
bottle a
On 1onday, October 23, 1967, a circular was
distributed in the area calling for a mass meeting at
the play lot at ,1agno l ia and 1aple to protest white
ownership of stores and houses and police brut ality .
Alderman Q. v. Williamson called me and came
by my office . He wanted to ta l k to Officer J . B. Phillips
and I had Officer Phillips go by his office on Hunter
Street . Alderman Williamson brouTht one of the circulars
to me and stated he was present when they were run off
the .nachine ond that he thought that the so called "Rev .
Boone" was behind them .
Alderman Williamson was of the opinion that if
the officers would lighten up on the defendents , it would
help the situation . I did not agree with him but sent
Officer Phillips to see him .
I alerted Captain R.
c.
Little and Lt . C. J .
Perry to the situation and instructed them to allow the
meeting if it
orderly .
I went to the are and was there until the
situotion got GO unruly , I ordered the Task Force into
the area iith full equipment to disperse the crowd e They
had set . fires against the doors of both super~arkets at
Vine and 1agnolia, Dcro s the entire street at taple and
gnolia and other fires in the street at ~agnolia ond
Walnut . The fires were fed by gasoline . The door at
Herman's Sup rmarket, 544 Magnolia, w s forced open and
looted of beer nd other articles . While the officers
were investigating this, The Rig Rock Supermarket was
brok n in the front door but no entrance was made . The
rear window of the captain's car w s ')rok n out by a brick
and as I passed a roup of people who were listening to
Senator ~roy John on who clai.ed he had the group under
control, apron tanding near him thr w a rock into my
front window which was down and struck rn on the hand . I
talked to Alderuan ililliamson the second time that night
at ~a~nolia and Vine and infor ed hi~ that l was goin· to
call 1.n reenforce ents and clear the area . He agreed with
e . Color pictures were made of ll damage .
1 h d held Lt . c . 3 . Dickerson and ei ht
her
of the Task Force in the building from 8:00 p • • until
that tie, and I c lled for them to co e into the or a and
disperse the unruly crowd . I was with them the entire time
and they did an excellent job of clearin the street with
no injuries or undu force and no arre ts . No ghots wer
fired, although the T sk Force wa€ ar.ed with riot 'uns .
�- 3 -
Captain 0 ., W. Jordan and the Crime Prev ntion
Bure U 9 including Lt . C a Dixon, Sgt. Goss and Detective
Re B. Moore, were on the scene and were of invaluable
assistance in restoring order and contacting the well
meaning people of the community of which there were many .,
It was found that most of the unruly crowd were
from several blocks to several miles away from this
immediate area .,
The Transit Company rerouted their buses from
this area during the worst part of the disorder and automobiles that did not belong in the area were prohibited
from traveling the street during the emergency .
On Tuesday night, the Cri e Prevention was
assigned to the area under the direction of Lt . Dixon and
Sgt . Goss and no trouble was reported anywhere in the area .
The Fire Department responded each time they were
called . They did ask that we appraise them of the nature
of the fire .so that they would know which type of equipment
to send . This was done and ~any fire calls were canceled
by the police when they could be handled without fire
equipment .

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

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,

Thank you very muc h for your letter of July 14th
concerning the Joel Chandler Harri s m emorial
Association. I agree with you that it is di sgraceful
that any thr eats have been made against the staff of
the W ren' s Nest.
I am having a. check made to see if it was reported to
the P olice Department, and. if not, I will ask the Police
Department to offer its servic
to the W ren' s Nest
aad assist the staff with any threats of this type.
If there is any further information you would like concerning the city's action, I will be glad to furni h it.
Sincerely,
I van Allen. Jr.

times in the past twenty-five years. Without a doubt , the
Presidential Panel , on which Chief Jenkins is serving ,
could use the sort of knowledge that I feel I have at the level
of major Negro-population centers--Negro Press , thoughtleaders, opinion-makers and leaders of national and local
organizations and institutions.
With regard to programming, I have some ideas which would
involve the cooperation of the Negro Press and important
organizations, with whom I have worked for more than a quarter
of a century.
I would be grateful to you if you would transmit copies of this
communication and attachments to Chief Jenkins and Mayor
Allen. I am sharing a copy with Mr. Jones.

My dear Mr. Mayor:
This department is receiving more and more demands
for additional police services in public housing projects because the very
nature of the project requires a large number of people, of various social
standards, to live together in a very small area.
We feel that the housing authorities, both private and
public, should share in the expense of this security by employing one full
time security officer for each project.
The most frequent problems are petty larceny, breaking
of windows and screens, and other vandalism by juveniles.
A full time security guard is needed on the premises
at all times to help protect the property and the occupants. If the housing
authorities could employ such a guard, this department could swear them
in as special officers, to protect the property of the owners and to notify
the police if any assistance is needed.
The housing projects that are most urgently in need of
such security at this time are:
Bowen Homes
Capitol Homes
Carver Homes
John J. Eagen Homes
Henry Grady Homes
Joel Chandler Harris Homes
Alonzo F . Herndon Homes
Techwood Homes
Perry Homes
University John Hope Homes
If you approve of this proposal, please pass it along to
the proper authorities with a r equest that it be done.

'ome of these merchants have
told us they feel that the presence of uniformed
police patrolling these areas would act as a deterrent in the a~ivities of shoplifters, flimflam
artists, till tappers, etc .
At a mooting of our Executive Committee
on yesterday we ··ere requested to write you to ask
if it would be possible to put some uniformed men

Our Committee feels this would be most

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?

Sinc e the beginning of modern day local gove rnment, as we know it, th e

In 1829 Sir Robert Peal e org anized the Metropolitan London Police

all metropolitan police systern.s of the free w orld today.

This was the first tin.1. e that a local govermnent en1.ploye d a full tiine uniform
polic e forc e and accepte d all of the responsibility to
pre vent cri1ne and to arrest and prosecute all law
violators.
Thi s system provide d · for a division of uniform officers, or constab l es
as th ey were call e d at that ti1ne, to patrol and to furnish
a day watch and a night watch , also a plain cloth e s or

The duti es and responsibilities of th e police has ch a n ge d very littl e sinc e

There is no corrunon cause for crime , the refore there is no con~mon cure,

and insist that Whitley's Market, )98 Lee St., s.w., not be allowed to
transfer his license for beer and wine across the street from his present
location.
We have positive proof that he sells both beer and wine on
Sunday. We are also informed tmt he sells not only beer and wine, but
also "bootleg" whiskey in the house next door to the store. If necessary,
we can furnish witnesses of those who have bought it from him on Sunday.
He accepts personal property as security for the alcoholic beverages.
