Demand Retirement of New York College Department Head for Bias Against Jewish Teachers

A demand that the chairman of the Romance Language Department of the City College of New York be retired because of his “philosophy and program of anti-Semitism” was made today by the American Jewish Congress in a 60-page brief analyzing the administration of the chairman, Prof. William E. Knickerbocker.

The brief was prepared by the Congress’ Commission on Law and Social Action at the request of a three-man committee appointed by the Board of Higher Education to probe the charges that Prof. Knickerbocker had discriminated against Jewish members of his department in the question of promotions.
