Wilkinson of Kenbridge, Virginia, wrote to Senator Harry Byrd protesting the integration of public schools, criticizing the NAACP, and avowing that the Supreme Court had violated States rights. He wrote the letter on stationary with the following heading: "The great racial fight over schools was excitingly promulgated by the Supreme Court's methodized School Mandamus.
