MORE MISSISSIPPI STATE SOVEREIGNTY COMMISSION (SECRET POLICE) STUFF:
These are a few more documents from the hundreds I've recently secured from my Sovereignty Commission files. Brief explanatory notes precede them.
Erle was Erle Johnston, Jr., Director of the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission. Tom Watkins was Attorney Thomas Watkins of the Jackson law firm of Watkins & Eager. A committed segregationist, and brilliant lawyer, he was retained by the State in several cases involving us, especially when we were represented by Attorney William M. Kunstler of New York and Attorney R. Jess Brown of Jackson.
He was also a member of the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission.
This raw Sovereignty Commission file on me is being examined and "processed" -- in very detailed fashion -- by Attorney Watkins who is delineating and proposing new investigatory leads. It grew much, much larger as time passed.
Note that some years later, October 3 1972 , there was still motion around my Sovereignty Commission files. At that time, I was in Chicago where I was directing -- and had been since 1969 -- a very large-scale and very successful community organizational project, involving mostly low-income minority people, on the turbulent and bloody South/Southwest Side. I occasionally returned to Mississippi.
Jose Cid was a Cuban "refugee" and briefly a professor at Tougaloo -- where he very quickly became a secret fink for the Sovereignty Commission. He was extremely focused against me.
