Negroes to Honor Rosenwald at Rites

Download PDF for this date

Rabbi David I. Cedarblum of Lansing, Mich. will be guest speaker at a memorial service to be held Sunday in honor of the late Julius Rosenwald by the St. Antoine Y. M. C. A., the fourth group of Negroes of this city to pay tribute to the philanthropist.

The memorial is aimed “to emphasize the great character and spirit of the late Mr. Rosenwald, and it will be a fitting appreciation for his philanthropies directed to the Negro group.”

Public school teachers and members of the local Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. are cooperating in the arrangements for the service.
