For­ward Into The Past Chana Pol­lack’s Archival Dive

A DEEP DIVE INTO OUR ARCHIVES

Forward Magazine - - Contents - BY CHANA POL­LACK

ON A BREAK from their busy New York City lives tam­ing cap­i­tal­ism, two beloved so­cial­ists are seen cud­dling up to another grow­ing beast. Pic­tured here on a 1930s trip to Los An­ge­les where the West Coast busi­ness of­fices of the Forverts were lo­cated, are Judge Jacob Panken (stand­ing, at left) ac­com­pa­nied by Forverts busi­ness man­ager B. Char­ney Vladeck. Vladeck was gen­eral man­ager of the Forverts for over two decades and also served as a New York City Coun­cil­man from the Amer­i­can La­bor Party. Panken was pres­i­dent of the For­ward As­so­ci­a­tion in 1920, and ran un­suc­cess­fully for gov­er­nor, mayor and se­na­tor on the So­cial­ist Party ticket. What the baby lion or the guy crouch­ing next to it might have thought about these pi­o­neers of the Jewish la­bor move­ment is any­body’s guess.
