Interview with Paul Wilson
QUESTION 11
INTERVIEWER:

IN TERMS OF THE NATION, I WONDER IF YOU WOULD TALK TO US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE IMPACT OF THAT, AND YOUR, YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT HAVING BEEN PART OF SUCH A LANDMARK.

Paul Wilson:

Well, my information about the impact in other parts of the country, are of course based upon reading that I have done, and I have the impression that the impact was substantial in the states of the South. Um, my own uh, feeling about having a part in this decision—well, it was a lawsuit, and I was a lawyer—and it was a case that came to me, not because I solicited it, because it was my job. And, uh, I felt about it as I felt about other lawsuits in which I participated, that it was a case in which there was something to be said for the side that I represented, and I said it as well as I could. And because it was decided adversely to me, did not uh, did not trouble me.
