Notes
1 page, single-sided. Typed on letterhead. Letter dated March 2, 1939, addressed to Alphonse de la Rochelle, head of Secretariat of Montreal section of Saint-Jean-Baptiste Society, from the Crémazie section of the organization. Letter refers to accompanying copies of correspondence sent to the Canadian Prime Minister and to Joseph Jean, county deputy. Letter lists 3 manufacturing companies that fired Canadian workers and replaced them with "dirty Jews". Letter states that 250 Canadian workers, nearly all heads of households, have been put on the street to feed the "Jewish vermin". Narrative: The Saint-Jean-Baptiste Society (Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste) was founded on June 24, 1834 to promote French-Canadian interests, preserve French language and culture, and protect Catholicism. It is still in existence today, though it has shifted to an espousal of the Quebec separatist movement. In the 1930s, it vehemently opposed Jewish immigration to Quebec.
