Interview with Erle Johnston
QUESTION 39
INTERVIEWER:

WOULD YOU SAY HE WAS A SEGREGATIONIST BEFORE AND, AND THEN A PRACTICAL SEGREGATIONIST, OR …

Erle Johnston:

Well, I'm sure that he would accept the label of segregationist because like I said just about everybody was back in those days, but he came around to being practical, because that's what I like to say that I was, a practical segregationist because he could see what was happening and he didn't see any point in butting his head against the wall.
