OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT September 14, 1966

Dear Ivan:

We displaced Georgians have been proud of your
performance in the very trying time through which
you have gone recently. I have watched from a dis-
tance the exceptional service you have rendered to
the great City of Atlanta all through the years and
have always had a feeling of pride in the accomplish-
ments which you and your associates have made possible
in the city which meant so much to us for a few years
while we lived there, and has continued to mean much
to us all through the years.

I had the pleasure of making the Commencement
address at Georgia State College last spring and I
spoke on "The Importance of the Moderate in Society."
I hope that you did not object to the fact that I used
you as an example of a moderate who had made possible
the growth and development of the City of Atlanta in
the way it has developed under your leadership.

It would give me a lot of pleasure to have you
speak to our student body at Davidson should you ever
have an opportunity to come to the Charlotte area.

You have our best wishes for a successful resolution
of the problems which you have been facing recently and
our deep admiration for your courage and wisdom.


D. Grier Martin

The Honorable Ivan Allen
Mayor of the City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia
