Philip Slomovitz (1896-1993), often referred to as the dean of Jewish-American journalists, had a prolific career. He founded The Jewish News in Detroit in 1942 and for almost fifty years used the paper as a vehicle to champion Jewish causes as well as promote amity among diverse peoples. He reported on many history-making events, both locally, nationally and internationally, keeping background files to aid him in his writings. It is these files and correspondence that make up the bulk of his papers.
