Biographical Note

Norman Hapgood (1868-1937), journalist and ambassador, in the early-1920s wrote an exposé on the apparent anti-Semitism of noted industrialist Henry Ford and his newspaper The Dearborn Independent. Through a series of articles entitled, "The Inside Story of Henry Ford’s Jew Mania,” published in Hearst's International, Hapgood hoped to link Henry Ford’s anti-Semitism to the pro-Tsarist movement in the U.S. and Russia. This collection of articles was assembled by Daniel E. Miranda for Brandeis University professor Bernard S. Sobel’s class, “Sociology of Anti-Semitism,” in 1966.


1 Folders


Starting in June 1922, journalist Norman Hapgood wrote a number of articles exposing the anti-Semitic propaganda of Henry Ford. These articles were later compiled by Brandeis student Daniel E. Miranda, who realized the scarcity of the articles. This collection contains those articles and a forward describing them.


Collection consists of a single folder the contents of which have been arranged in chronological order.

Physical Location

Collection is located in Consolidated Box P8.
