The International Symbol of Racism & Bigotry

CONNOR, Eugene “Bull”  (1897-1973).  Democratic party politician. Police official for the City of Birmingham, Alabama during the Civil Rights Movement. He fought against integration using fire hoses, police dogs and a small tank against protest marchers.  This spectacle of brutality was broadcast on national television.  He was part of history, on February 16, 1968, he was present at the Haleyville, Alabama Police Station for the first ever use of 9-1-1 as an emergency telephone number.  RARE typed letter signed on his Birmingham Police Commissioner, Eugene “Bull” Connor letterhead illustrating the Confederate Flag.  March 21, 1960.  A fabulous content campaign letter. In part: “The time has come when the people of Alabama must face up to our serious problems. If we continue to duck and dodge and waiver in our principals, we will be run over like sick calves in a Texas stampede....The Committeeman for which I am a candidate and the committeewoman from Alabama are more important in this crisis than in any other in the history of our state.  Alabama needs a man whose record shows clearly and unmistakably what he will do--not what he says he will do...You know how I fell on the great problem that confronts the South today...people of Alabama have made up their minds that they are not  going to continue to be kicked and cuffed around by Paul Butler and his Northern left-wing Democrats….I’m determined to do what I can to keep our people from being trampled on...I have continually opposed with all my power the dangerous efforts to stir up trouble and to desegregate Birmingham...” Signed “Bull”.  In fine condition
