Interview with Colonel Floyd Mann
QUESTION 5
INTERVIEWER:

UH, WHAT ABOUT THE CLIMATE UH, COMING OUT OF THE GOVERNOR'S CAMPAIGN IN 1958?

Col. Floyd Mann:

Well, I'm sure that this uh, this also had a bearing because we had had an election uh, in 1958, whereby both Governor Wallace and uh, John Patterson uh, was running against each other for governor, and of course the segregation issue at that time was uh, a strong issue in the race, very strong issue, and uh different groups of people were supporting different candidates because of uh, those issues.
