Interview with John Doar
QUESTION 21
INTERVIEWER:

I'M SORRY, YOU'RE GOING… COULD YOU USE HIS NAME PLEASE.

John Doar:

Well, James, James Meredith was a good guy and we got along fine. He was interesting and… Of course, he was very stubborn, and you, you had to admire him, courageous, determined, fearless. Um, kept his own counsel but was friendly and, and, uh, when I, when I was at the University, uh, we ate together, three meals a day, I traveled with him to class, I didn't walk right along with him because we wanted to give him as much of a natural, uh, like any other student as we could, but we were always very close by, a group of marshals and myself, because there was, at any moment there could be some reaction or response that could let things get out of hand.
