2643 Humphries Street
East Point, Georgia
October 4, 1966
Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Mr. Mayor:
Thursday evening, September 29, 1966, the Atlanta Journal printed
on page two an article attributed to you regarding the election of
Lester Maddox as the Democratic nominee for Governor.
On
As a private citizen and elected public official, you are entitled
to your opinion but I must take exception to both your attitude
and published statement.
September 28, 1966, I exercised my constitutional right as a
citizen and voted in the run-off election. You have now intimated
that I am either ignorant, prejudiced, a reactionary or a Republican.
I am none of these, and I have taken your choice of words to be
a personal insult to my judgment and freedom to vote as I see fit.
On
It appears to me that a written apology is in order unless you can
substantiate your allegations with more than an opinion.
I anxiously await your reply.
Walla McDaniel
