Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The largest known existing archive of propaganda created by 1930s isolationist provocateur Robert Edward Edmondson, a journalist and America First activist with a pronounced anti-Semitic, anti-New Deal agenda. The collection consists of approximately 375 handbills, broadsides, flyers, and newsletters primarily written by Robert Edmondson and published in New York.
Robert Edward Edmondson (1872-1959) was an anti-Semitic pamphleteer and journalist for the Cincinnati Post, New York Mail and Express, and the New York Herald. He launched the Edmondson Economic Service in 1934 as a means to publish anti-Semitic literature and critiques of the New Deal and President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
