Description
Copy of a letter from one of Florida's two U.S. Senators, Charles O. Andrews, to John P. Ingle, secretary of the Associated Industries of Florida, headquartered in Jacksonville. The copy was sent to Governor Spessard Holland as a courtesy. Andrews acknowledges receipt of a bulletin published by the Associated Industries of Florida in which the organization commends Governor Holland for agreeing with the governor of Alabama in his stance against President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Executive Order 8802. This order aimed to prevent racial discrimination in the nation's defense industries during World War II. Andrews expresses his concern that actions such as this will lead to the amalgamation of the races and "social equality," which he deems not in the nation's best interest.
