City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Mr. Allen:

Mrs. Beiswanger and I moved in June from Milledge-
ville, where both of us were teaching in the Woman's
College, to the Aflanta area. I am teaching in the
philosophy department of Georgia State College.

Though our actual residence, as you see, is in
Decatur, we are thrilled to be in Atlanta, It is such
a beautiful city. We had been in and out of it many
times, but now we are really getting to know it.

I had intended to write you sooner because of
the stand you took on the Civil Rights proposals now
before the Congress, Your position, as I see it, is
both right and sound,

One of the reasons we took into full acount when
deciding to come to Atlanta was its sensible way of
dealing with the racial problem, We took pride in that
in before we came, and hope we can continue to feel
good about the city in this respect, despite the set
backs from time to time, and the obstinate,

Among summer explorations here, we took in the
Shakespeare productions of the Academy Theatre, expect-—

is such a pleasure to be in a city built in a forest.

Our appreciation for all you are doing as mayor
and civic leader,
Co ly yours,

George Beiswanger
