Interview with John Doar
QUESTION 23
INTERVIEWER:

I WONDERED IF HE ALSO MIGHT HAVE EVER EXPRESSED WHETHER HE FELT THAT TO SOME EXTENT, THAT HE, THAT IT GOT TAKEN AWAY FROM HIM, I MEAN, THERE HE'D FOUGHT FOR EIGHTEEN MONTHS VIRTUALLY BY HIMSELF WITH THE NAACP, AND THEN SUDDENLY, THE GOVERNMENT IS FLYING HIM IN AND OUT, AND THERE'S MARSHALS AND PLANES AND EVERYTHING, I WONDERED IF HE SUDDENLY HAD A SENSE OF HIS, HIS STORY BEING PULLED FROM HIMSELF?

John Doar:

I don't think so, uh, you, you, you wonder about whether he felt that, that the case had been taken away from him because there was so much effort to support him. I don't believe, I, I never detected that, I never detected that kind of attitude. Um, later on when things didn't go so well, or when he got discouraged he may have expressed those feelings, but he never did to me in those early days.
