MEMORANDUM

FROM:
Mayor Ivan Allenr Jr.
Carl T. Sutherland
I have reviewed the current status of registers containing the
names of Negroes among the top three. I find that:
The list for Equipment Operator I, which is headed by
the name of a Negro who was referred May 10, 1967, but
was not employed, still is headed by the name of the
same Negro but that he wai~ed certification with the
Construction Department and is waiting for a vacancy
in the Water Department.
The Semi-Skilled Worker list on which the three top
applicants were Negroes as of May 16 now has five
whites at the top of the list.
The promotional list for Equipment Operator I in the
Construction Department on May 16 had two qualified
applicants, both Negroes. One has been promoted and
the other is awaiting a vacancy.
The promotional list for Equipment Operator II in the
Construction Department still has two Negroes who have
waived certification for existing vacancies. They are
waiting for vacancies in their present locations as
they do not wish to transfer to locations where the
present vacancies exist .
�Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.

May 31, 1967
The promotional list for Laborer II in the Construction
Department now has eight Negro eligibles. There are
twelve vacancies. I have acquainted Mr. Nixon with this
situation, and he is sending Mr. Sojka to see me about
it. Mr. Nixon states that he will take necessary action
to see that there is no discrimination.
The promotional list for Semi-Skilled Worker in the
Water Department which had three Negro eligibles as of
May 16 is exhausted. The three have been promoted.
The list for Sewer Serviceman II (Construction) which
had three Negroes at the top as of May 16 is exhausted.
These three and one additional Negro have been promoted
since that time.
The three Negroes listed at the top of the Waste Collection
Driver promotional list in the Sanitary Department and the
three Negroes listed at the top of the Waste Collector II
list (Sanitary) have been assigned to the extra board for
the higher classes.,and work in the higher classes in the
absence of the regular employees. They will be assigned
to permanent position numbers as soon as vacancies occur.
My placement office tells me that we are not meeting the resistance on the appointment and promotion of qualified Negroes that
we once met. They state that the situation has improved greatly
in recent months.

MEMORANDUM
TO:

FROM:
General Carl T. Sutherland
Re your inquiry concerning the status of the application of
Mr. Steers Johnson who is seeking employment in the City rs
Civil Defense Department:
The Civil Defense Department personnel are under the State
Merit System.
It just happens that I remember Mr. Johnson who was an applicant 4½ years ago during the time that I was Acting Civil
Defense Director. It is my understanding that he continuously has sought employment with General Woodward since
that time but that General Woodward fee ls that he does not
meet his requirements. General Woodward has expressed the
desire to employ a qualified Negro in his department, but
he thinks that Johnson is not properly qualified.
Sincerely,

professional librarians t hro u ghou t the co untry and therefore
we are pleased t o employ trained people wh enever and whereever we can get them. Due to the fact that the salaries have
been low and even yet are not too competitive, we are failing
to attract graduates fr om either of our local library schools,
Emory University and Atlanta Universi ty.
As for the second part of the request, it has been th e practice
of the Atlanta Public Library for a period of years to advertise
a11 vacancies first to the staff. There has been no situation
in branch promotions where a qualified applicant has been refused a promotion on the basis of race. The branch staffs are
not segregated.
We feel that the Summit leaders have received a mistaken
impression of the make-up of the library staff. Our motto has
been and is to hire the best person we can get at all times
for each job to better serve our community.
