Honorable John A. White, Chairman
Employment Opportunities Committee
218 Healey Building

57 Forsyth Street, N. W.

Atlanta 3, Georgia

Dear Mr. White:

I am enclosing a copy of a report of ethnic distribution of

City employment showing the numbers of Whites and Negroes
employed in classes other than Porter, Laborer, Waste Collec-
tor I, Building Cleaner, Building Custodian, and Caddy Master

as of December 28, 1964. This report also lists total number of
Negroes employed in each of the listed classes as of December 26,
1963. You will note that as of December 26, 1963, 337 Negroes
were employed in 36 job classes, and that on December 28, 1964,
483 Negroes were employed in 52 classes other than those listed

This report shows that steady progress is being made in providing
job opportunities in a wide variety of classes for qualified
Negro applicants.

Since heavy work concerned with the budget prevented your
calling a meeting of the Committee during the month of January,
I suggest that you not call a meeting until April if you feel
that this report is sufficient for the January meeting. I am
mailing a copy of this report to the Mayor and to each member of
the Committee.
