Scanned image of a Spring 2004 reproduction of An Open Letter to the People of Lynchburg dated 27 April 1967.

The open letter was signed by several members of the Jones Memorial Library board of trustees at the time, including the board president Robert C. Watts, Jr. and members Charles G. Baber, B.C. Baldwin, Jr., C.R. Pettyjohn, and James R. Gilliam, Jr.
