- In Yiddish. 8 pages. May, 1951 Ordn Bulletin. Translated Summary: Articles on the New York State Supreme Court case and a back page giving the assets and liabilities report for 1950. On page 6, an article "Der Ordn Lebt..." or, "The Ordn is Alive and Carrying out its Activities", paints a rosy picture of those Ordn activities that are continuing, and by implication, the desire to move forward to salvage cultural activities and the school system in particular.
- The campaign ensued once the IWO was put on the Attorney General's Subversive Organizations List in November 1947; the list (aka the Red List) was published in March 1948.
- The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
