Anti-semitic Publication in U.S. Ends Existence; Fails to Raise Funds

Download PDF for this date

The demise of one of America’s most viciously anti-Semitic publications, “Williams Intelligence Summary, ” was announced at nearby Santa Ana by publisher Robert Williams. In the March 1958 issue of the “newsletter. ” Mr. Williams reveals that his inability to raise the necessary funds will make this his last edition, though he promises to make a comeback at a later date.

This brings to a temporary close a ten-year career in hate-mongering by Mr. Williams who began his “publishing” interest under the aegis of pamphleteer and radio commentator Upton Close. After writing several anti-Jewish pamphlets, he launched his “Intelligence Summary” in which he frequently linked Jews and Communists.
