John J. McCloy, former United States High Commissioner for Germany, received tonight the seventh annual Human Rights Award of the Joint Defense Appeal of the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith.
The award, which is given each year to an American “whose contributions to the nation’s welfare epitomize the goals and ideals of the American Jewish committee and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Blrith,” was presented to Mr. McCloy by Judge Joseph M. Proskauer, at a dinner marking the resumption of the fall phase of the Appeal campaign for $6,100,000. Gustave L. Levy was guest of honor at the dinner.
