- New York Times clipping on IWO fundraising on Ingram case. The article basically repeats the press conference charges issued by Thurgood Marshall, then head of the NAACP's (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) Legal Defense Fund. The charge (not a legal case) that Marshall makes is that the IWO is raising money for the Ingram legal defense (and for itself), a legal case that it had agreed would be pursued exclusively by the NAACP. The IWO response was that they were raising money to help two of Rosa Ingram's offspring whom they brought to Philadelphia and helped educate using a special fund set up for that purpose. The correspondence on this issue includes a letter from her son who went to Philadelphia.
- 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.
