Interview with Colonel Floyd Mann
QUESTION 53
INTERVIEWER:

WITH WHO, WHY DON'T YOU START AGAIN.

Col. Floyd Mann:

I think Governor Patterson at that time disagreed totally with what the freedom riders were doing and what they were trying to prove, because I, in my own mind, at that time, just remembering the uh transaction between he and the government, I think he felt that this was an effort to uh bring this type of publicity on the state and also to put him in a very awkward position politically.
