Hollander Company Attempts to Oust Alleged Anti-semite from Board of Directors

Download PDF for this date

A fight to secure the removal of Luigi Criscuolo, investment banker and a director of the fur-dyeing firm of A. Hollander Sons, Inc., from the board of directors of that company, has been launched here by Michael Hollander, its president, who charges that Criscuolo has injured the company by issuing material attacking Jews, anti-Fascist Catholics and prominent public figures.

Criscuolo is the publisher of “The Rubicon,” a news letter distributed to large business firms. This publication has at various times attacked Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mayor LaGuardia, Congressman Sol Bloom, Archbishop Spellman and others. The issue of Criscuolo’s removal will be settled on August 9 when a stock-holder’s meeting will be asked to adopt a charter amendment which would result in his ouster.
