Description

Minutes of a monthly meeting of the Orlando Ministerial Association. The meeting was held on May 8, 1958, at the Y.M.C.A. in Orlando, Florida. According to the document, the members in attendance discussed the bombing of a synagogue and a black elementary school in Jacksonville on April 28, 1958. Anonymous callers claimed responsibility for the bombings and reportedly belonged to a group called the "Confederate Union". The document details how the members of the meeting were disturbed by this and conducted several actions, including setting up a committee to pass a resolution concerning the bombings, sending a letter of commendation to the mayor and police department of Jacksonville, and having the special committee consider sending a letter to Senator Smathers, asking him to get the Justice Department involved. The document was written by John C. Fuller, who was Secretary of the Orlando Ministerial Association.
