Ralph D. Blumenfeld, English newspaper editor and executive, who for thirty years guided the destinies of the London Daily Express, joins the staff of the Jewish Daily Bulletin’s cable contributors. His first article appears in next Sunday’s issue of the Bulletin, under the title “The Army That Leads Its Leaders.” Accompanying Mr. Blumenfeld’s debut article in The Bulletin will be a portrait sketch of the writer, cabled by A. L. Easterman, English journalist, for many years foreign editor of the Express and now associated with the London Daily Herald.
Mr. Blumenfeld is an influence in English politics and journalism. Of American birth, he became a naturalized Englishman after having proved his mettle on Fleet Street. He is also the author of “In the Days of Bicycles and Bustles.” Until recently he was indifferent to the problems of Jewry but the advent of Hitler brought out and accentuated his racial consciousness so that, today, he is one of the most militant leaders of English Jewry.
In his first article for the Bulletin he pleads, directly and indirectly, for a more rigid observance of the world boycott against Hitler Germany. In this article Mr. Blumenfeld exhibits his gifts for wit and strength in journalism.
