Receives a check from John L. Connor, Chairman of the City of Atlanta, Georgia, War Bond selling campaign, March 1943. The check, for $63,000,000, represents the amount raised in a bond selling drive to cover the cost of replacing the cruiser Atlanta (CL-51), sunk on 13 November 1942 off Guadalcanal. The campaign's goal of $35,000,000 was greatly exceeded, providing more than enough to pay for the new cruiser, which became USS Atlanta (CL-104).
