American Legion Moves Against Rosika Schwimmer, Peace Advocate


That her “Un-American utterances and unpatriotic character,” should preclude Rosika Schwimmer, formerly of Budapest, Hungary, and a member of the Pax-Special peace party, from being granted citizenship paper is the gist of a resolution recently adopted by the American Legion Auxiliary in conference at Indianapolis. The resolution was sent to the Department of Labor in Washington.

Rosika Schwimmer, the Jewish feminist and writer is believed to have been the one who induced Henry Ford to start on his famous Peace Ship, of which she was one of the members.
