THE UNITED STATES COMMISSION ON CIVIL RIGHTS
WASHINGTON, D.C.

SEPTEMBER 9, 1959. To: THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

THE CONGRESS The Commission on Civil Rights submits to you its report pursuant to Public Law 85–315, Eighty-fifth Congress.

We believe that this report, along with the separately printed record of hearings held by the Commission, will provide information of permanent value to the executive and legislative branches of the Government. This work could not have been done without the wholehearted cooperation of many individuals, organizations, and Government agencies. The assistance of a faithful and dedicated staff also was invaluable. Respectfully yours,

JOHN A. HANNAH, Chairman.
ROBERT G. STOREY, Vice Chairman.
JOHN S. BATTLE.
DOYLE E. CARLTON.
Rev. THEODORE M. HESBURGH, C.S.C.

GEORGE M. JOHNSON.

GORDON M. TIFFANY, Staff Director.

Acknowledgments The Commission wishes to express to Dwight D. Eisenhower, President of the United States, its appreciation of his unfailing personal support and of his efforts in securing for the Commission the necessary cooperation of the many government departments and agencies that aided in the performance of its task.

Acknowledgment is also made to former President Harry S. Truman and to the staff of the Truman Library in Independence, Mo., for their courtesy and diligence in making available the working papers of the President's Committee on Civil Rights (1947).

Generous assistance was given the Commission by many Governors, Attorneys General, Mayors, and other State and local officials who were consulted in accordance with Section 105 (c) of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, authorizing such consultation.

The Commission's thanks are also due to many official State and local organizations operating in the fields of civil rights, human relations, and fair employment practices; to numerous private organizations concerned with these endeavors; and to many religious and welfare groups, universities, statistical and research organizations, members of the press and other communications media. All gave full cooperation when requested.

The Commission feels a particular debt of gratitude to the hundreds of men and women who served on its State Advisory Committees and aided in its hearings and conferences, thus providing information of great value to this report.

Finally, the Commission wishes to acknowledge that this report could not have been made without the able and devoted assistance of Gordon M. Tiffany, Staff Director, other members of its staff, and consultants who have furnished part-time assistance and advice. All who have served on the Commission staff or as consultants at one time or other are listed below in alphabetical order. Aliquo, Cam
