Dear Mr. Moore:

A Housing Resources Committee is being established in Atlanta to

work closely with and as an adjunct to the Mayor's Office in a

special effort to provide through private enterprise, non-profit
organizations and public housing sufficient housing units for all .
those in low and medium income brackets in Atlanta to be housed

in decent, safe and sanitary housing and to eliminate existing

slums in our city.

Sub-committees of the Housing Resources Committee will soon be
appointed in various fields of endeavor to serve on the Committee
for accomplishing this momentous objective.

You have been nominated to serve with several others on the
Public Information Sub-Committee. It is anticipated that at its
first meeting each Sub-Committee will elect its own Chairman,

. who will also be the Sub-Committee's representative on the
Executive Group of the Housing Resources Committee as a whole.

It is also expected that each Sub-Committee, in addition to
supplying "know how" in its particular field, will also be
influential at all levels to gain acceptance for and promotion

of the program and would select at least two young men from

firms which can afford to devote part of their time for intensive
work with the Sub-Committee.

It would also be helpful if each Sub-Committee could form an
advisory panel of people active in the field of housing who would
