Advocate
    (January 21, 1884-August 26, 1981)
    Born in Wellesley, Massachusetts
    Sociology professor at Washington University in St. Louis (1906-10)
    Founded the ACLU (1920) and the International League for Human Rights (1950)
    Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1981)
    Appeared in the film 'Reds' (1981)
    He was an elitist who was annoyed when later directors opened up ACLU membership to anyone.
    He called his one-year imprisonment for draft resistance 'my vacation on the government.'
    He wrote, 'The Soviet Union has already created liberties far greater than exist elsewhere in the world.' (1934)
    He also wrote, 'I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class and sole control by those who produce wealth. Communism is, of course, the goal.' (1935)
    He denounced Communism in the book 'A New Slavery' (1953) and led a campaign to remove Communists from leadership positions in the ACLU.
    After World War II, he was a civil liberties consultant in Japan, Germany and Austria.
    He served as director of the National Audubon Society and donated land for a bird sanctuary.
