Ainsworth on Kreutz Case
World War I; Babel Proclamation; Council of Defense; German Language; Anti-Germanism; Babel Compliance; Coercion
Ainsworth's side of the Kreutz case, in which he at first refused to come and then relented when given a public hearing. His fear is evident, and the coercion thick.
