Carolyn Yeager and Hadding Scott read and comment on Chapter 7, "Arthur Brisbane Leaps to the Help of Jewry."
Image: Arthur Brisbane in his newspaper office in New York. He was one of the best-known editors of the 20th Century -- becoming editor of William Randolf Hearst's New York Journal and a close friend of Hearst. His syndicated column had an estimated daily readership of over 20 million.
Brisbane's editorial of Sunday, June 20, 1920, titled "Facts: An Antidote to Prejudice," is the subject of this chapter which appeared in Ford's Dearborn Independent 2 weeks later on July 3, 1920.
Brisbane's editorial can be read here, as a reprint in the Canadian Jewish Chronicle of July 2, 1920. The front page of this edition of the Chronicle is also of interest, under "Poor Ford" where Henry Ford is described by the Jews as being either mentally unbalanced or mentally defective.
