Dr. Frank Gained Wide Background

July 2, 1934
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Dr. Herman Frank, a journalist of more than twenty years’ experience in Europe and the United States, today begins in the Jewish Daily Bulletin a series of articles on the problems of Jewish life in America, under the heading, “Adjusting Our Lives.”

Born in Bialystok in 1892, Dr. Frank came to this country in 1923. Between the years 1915 and 1918, while Bialystok was occupied by the German army, he was in constructive communal work as a lecturer, cooperator and expert on the needs of the Jewish population in the social-economic crisis created by the war and military occupation. In 1919, he published in Yiddish two original and well-documented works based on his experiences and research during that critical period.

For three years, from 1920 to 1923, Dr. Frank lived in Germany, where he was editor of the Russian-German publishing company, Argonauten Verlag, while at the same time studying under professors Stammler, Sombart and Cunnow at the University of Berlin.

Since coming to this country he has been engaged in writing for various American and European periodicals hundreds of articles, many of them dealing with social, economic and political subjects has contributed numerous essays to such publications as Zukunft, Reflex, Jewish Tribune and American Hebrew.

Wide experience, gained in New York, Detroit and Chicago, in various Jewish community projects, combined with an exhaustive study of the American social and economic scene, have made Dr. Frank a recognized authority on the subject which he will discuss in the Bulletin every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
