June 2, 1965
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The California Department of the Jewish War Veterans called on Gov. Edmund Brown, Attorney General Thomas C. Lynch, Speaker Jesse Unruh, Senate Chairman Hugh Burns and Assemblyman Lester McMillan to establish a governmental body to study means to “stem the flood of hate literature distributed throughout the State of California.”

The letter, signed by Regional Commander Henry Wolfe, Hyman P. Manber, Department of California Commander and Hyman Haves, executive director, based its request on the California State legislature’s appointment of committees to investigate obscenity. It stated that a committee to investigate hate literature is just as essential to the welfare of the State.
