J. G. Leguia, Writer, Passes Away in Peru

Jorge Guillermo Leguia, historian and writer, known as a friend of the Jews, is dead here.

When Leguia was on a visit to Panama recently he took an active part in combating anti-Semitism in newspapers there. The target of the press attack at that time was Dr. Ariel Ben-Zion, who was conducting a campaign in Panama for the Keren Hayesod (Palestine Foundation Fund).
