Source: New York Times, DR. AHLWARDT ARRIVES, December 6, 1895

I'm getting really into this archive thing now. Maybe I should even set up a separate website for it.

I keep finding fascinating stuff. Here is an interview with Hermann Ahlwardt, described as the "German apostle of anti-Semitism", who visited the USA in 1895. This, incidentally, is one of the hits in the archives for the word "antisemitism". One of the things I like doing is tracing the historical origins of words and phrases that feature in debates in the present-day.
