Interview with Gov. John Patterson
QUESTION 49
INTERVIEWER:

(CUT. TAKE 13.) OKAY. ONE QUESTION. WAS THERE ANY KIND OF PRESSURE FROM THE STATE LEVEL TO THE CITY IN MONTGOMERY TO GET THIS WHOLE BUS BOYCOTT RESOLVED BEFORE IT DID ANY FURTHER DAMAGE TO THE CITY?

Gov. John Patterson:

Not that I know of. Of course I speak only from the Attorney General's office. Governor Fulsom was Governor at that time, and whether or not he was involved in any matter in the boycott I do not know.
