Description

A letter of correspondence from O. E. Frye, Jr., Assistant Director of the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission, to the Honorable John A. Sutton. The letter discusses possible legal action against those responsible for the 1962 Lake Apopka fish kill. Frye considers a successful legal action to be unlikely, and states his intention to explore possible regulations that could be applied to those responsible for the fish kill. The letter also congratulates Sutton on his success in the Democratic Primary Election, representing Florida's district 11, newly created that year, in the 1962 elections for the U.S. House of Representatives. He was later defeated by Republican Edward Gurney.
