Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The George Kellman papers contain correspondence, clippings, newsletters and publications, memoranda, and notes and writings by George Kellman during his tenure as Director of the Fact-Finding Division of the American Jewish Committee (New York Chapter) during the 1950s and 1960s. Publications include newletters of the American Jewish Committee, such as The Committee Reporter--as well as a host of pamphlets, reports, and other materials from a variety of sources. The papers document anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of bigotry and prejudice in the United States, along with efforts to combat bigotry. The collection also contains material documenting Kellman's service in the United States military during the Second World War, such as a 1943 handbook titled "How to Shoot the U.S. Army Rifle" published by The Infantry Journal.
The information in the following paragraph was taken from George Kellman's obituary published in the New York Times. The article appeared in print on June 29, 1999, Section B, Page 8 of the national edition with the headline: "Paid Notice: Deaths KELLMAN, JOSEPH A.G., ESQ."
