Dorothy Thompson Gets Gottheil Medal for Service to Democracy

Dorothy Thompson, the writer, has been awarded the Richard J.H. Gottheil Medal of the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity. The medal is awarded annually, on the basis of a poll of Anglo-Jewish editors, for aid to the Jews and democracy. Presentation was made at a luncheon Wednesday by Harold Riegelman, former executive of the fraternity, who praised Miss Thompson’s “instinct for freedom,” her “indomitable courage and selfless devotion.”
