Comments of G. William Miller

I must say, though, that there were interesting aspects all along. One, was that we approached one company to join this effort, and it had southern plant, and the president of the company said "Well, you know, everything you're doing is right. We'd sure love to join you, but we're kind of strapped for money now and we don't have enough money to build separate restrooms." And we said "You haven't got the message...." But that was the climate you had to deal with at that time. We've overcome all that, but it was very amazing that people still had that mentality...even at that time.
