The records reflect a wide variety of issues of public interest in the 1960s. Concerns relating to discrimination, open housing, and civil rights are reflected in constituent correspondence. Police Dept. correspondence shows apprehension about the possibility of riots, and other files document the discussion surrounding the Human Rights Commission and its work. Reaction of the public to the 1965 police shooting of an African American, Robert L. Reese, in the Central District, as well as the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is also captured in these records. Transportation is another topic covered in depth in these records. Efforts to improve transportation at the city and state level are documented in the mayor's correspondence regarding the transit system and METRO, parking issues downtown, I-5, the Lake Washington bridges, I-90, the R.H. Thomson Expressway, and downtown transportation planning. Other files in the collection show how the city was preparing for the Century 21 World's Fair in 1962 (for example, with a downtown beautification program and housing regulations). Records from the years following the fair show Seattle Center's transition into a civic campus, with many files relating to specific facilities such as the opera house and the coliseum
