Office of the Mayor
City of Atlanta

City Hali

Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Mrs. Moses:
Attached are some references which I would appreciate

your sharing with Mayor Alien and Chief Jenkins in support
of our telephone conversation of the other day.

As I pointed out on the phone, Chief Jenkins would quite

likely not remember me, although I have had the privilege

of chatting briefly with him on two occasions--once in the
mid-fifties when the NAACP was meeting in Atlanta and again
on the occasion of the Martin Luther King, Jr., testimonial
at the Dinkler a coupie of years ago. I have had the good
fortune of a more intimate contact with Mayor Alien due to
his and my association in the activities of the 100% Wrong

Possibly the people in Atlanta who know me best are Mr. £.
D. Sledge, retired Vice President and Director of Advertising,
The Coca-Cola Company, with whom I worked for more than
fifteen years, and Mr. Boisfeuillet Jones, head of the
Woodruff Foundation. Mr. Jones and I were associated for

a@ number of years in the program of the National Youth
Administration, which I joined in 1939, immediately following
my graduation from Morehouse College.

As will be seen from the attached, most of my experience has
been in the areas of race relations and communications. I

feel that I know the trouble-spot centers of the Nation extreme~
ly well, having been in and out of them possibly hundreds of
