I received the degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) at the City College of New York in 1939. While I was president of the Fur & Leather Workers Union (see above), I edited the union newspaper, FLM JOINT BOARD TEMPO, which received 12 first-prize awards for general excellence in the annual competitions sponsored by the International Labor Press Association (now the International Labor Communications Associ-ation). I authored an article, "Saul Mills and the Greater New York Labor Council" for Labor History Magazine, and wrote the chapter, "Labor in the Post-World War II Period" for the book, "The Cold War Against Labor."
