|Title:||Correspondence between Catherine May and Olga Johnson regarding Foreign Aid, Segregation, and the Johnson Administration, 1965|
Constituent Olga Johnson writes a racially charged letter to Catherine May in which she laments foreign aid, espouses having "...negroes confined on a reservation like the Indians," and "...Martin Luther King and his followers and President Johnson and his, could all be taken out to a uninhabited island..." She includes several political cartoons which criticize the Johnson administration and other "liberal" policies. May writes a restrained letter in response in which she thanks Johnson for the cartoons.
