Says Anti-Semitic Charge Against N. Y. U. Publicity

Download PDF for this date

The charge of anti-Semitism recently brought by Dr. Anna K. Bruenn against the New York University’s College of Dentistry, was declared to be nothing short of a publicity stunt by Dr. Samuel Singer, himself a Jew, dentist in Paterson, to a reporter of the "Jewish Post."

"We were both on the staff in the New York Dental School together," he said. "She was a junior students’ instructor in operative dentistry and I a senior students’ instructor. She was absolutely incapable. There was no discrimination shown at New York University. What is more, 80 percent of the students at the university are Jewish and a greater part of the faculty is Jewish."

This corroborates the statement made by Dr. Allen T. Neuman, Dean of the College of Dentistry on April 30, that Dr. Bruenn was not reappointed to her post as instructor in the Department of Operative Technology because she was incompetent.
