The Bulletin of the Anti-Fascist Association, January 1935

Founded by City College staff in early 1935, the Anti-Fascist Association was a collective of likeminded left-wing and liberal faculty who perceived and fought against a rising threat of fascism abroad and militarism at home. The group held monthly meetings and published their newsletters monthly as well. The document is the front page of the group's inaugural bulletin.

The Anti-Fascist Association counted approximately 200 members in its ranks, including senior faculty, with representatives from the organization often speaking at student-organized anti-war rallies. In 1936, one such representative, English instructor Morris Schappes, would be fired just hours after addressing a crowd of student protestors.
