Interview with Rufus Lewis
QUESTION 17
INTERVIEWER:

WHY WAS KING ACCEPTABLE, ONCE HE WAS NOMINATED?

Rufus Lewis:

I couldn't answer that for others, but I believe people just knew him, and, and his expression convinced him that he could do the job more effectively than anybody else, it seemed —anybody else in our group, it seemed. And there was no question about opposition, after he was nominated.
