Conde Mcginley, Anti-semitic Propagandist, Dead; Published’ Common Sense’

Conde McGinley, long-time hate-peddler, died here yesterday at the age of 73, from cancer. He and his son have published “Common Sense,” a semi-monthly which claimed a paid circulation of 91,000.

The House Committee on un-American activities declared after an investigation in 1954, that anti-Semitism was McGinley’s chief stock-in-trade. A resolution is pending in the New Jersey Senate calling him “a bigot who is anti-Negro, anti-Catholic and anti-Jew.” A spokesman at his office said, however, that McGinley was a Roman Catholic and would be buried Thursday after a mass.
