Ita€™s worth taking a moment to examine what Edgar said in that paper, to the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences in Philadelphia that April, because it encompassed not only his professional position but his personal philosophy.
His talk discussed free tradea€™s benefits for the American standard of living, and the pernicious effect that economic nationalism after the World War had on America and other nations.
This was economics and business, but more than those were on Edgara€™s mind as he addressed the domestic welfare. Edgar believed that a€?the right to buy and sell freely is a right that all nations would welcome, and [that] there is not one among them that would not choose this peaceful method of raising their living standards rather than the suicidal method of attempted conquest.a€? In light of the next ten years, this could be regarded as excessive economic determinism.
When later World War II was underway, this philosophy would inform a critical study done by Edgar and his office for GMa€™s Chairman of the Board, Alfred Sloan, as GM began to look beyond the war to the new and different world being created.
Perhaps Edgara€™s humble origins made him more sympathetic than many corporation men to the plight of people being thrown out of work or seeing their salaries drastically cut.
Roosevelta€™s inauguration in 1933 spelled no quick end to the Depression, though, and conditions at home made Export Company business more important to GM than ever. But Edgara€™s work in town was demanding, and overseas conditions were growing ever bleaker.
That he was actually not so sure of that privately, however, is suggested by a second action of his at this time. In short, the increasingly disturbing world scene was on Edgara€™s mind at work and at home. Yet he had never heard of the Baker Street Irregulars, and whata€™s more, he was some time learning about them now. Edgara€™s ardor for the Holmesiana he had discovered in Starretta€™s Private Life had not cooled in the meantime.
There is one more point of biographical interest about these early letters between Edgar and Vincent Starrett, though we must not make too much of it without further data.
Several years would pass before the BSI met again, and before Smith and the Baker Street Irregulars got to know each other. 1937 had been a big year for General Motors Export Company, not least because the Opel works it owned had grown from producing 26,000 units a year to 128,000, holding over forty percent of the German market now, and exporting automobiles as well. Osborna€™s grip on the helm was being increasingly challenged by a German executive at Opel, Rudolf Fleischer. As Edgara€™s office watched the crisis reach its peak in the spring of 1938, Graeme Howard, the GM manager for Europe, was directed to abort a trip to India and hurry to Opela€™s executive offices in Germany instead.
In the late 1990s, these and other issues led to accusations of GM sympathy for, and collaboration with, the Nazi regime. But Blacka€™s charges against GM and others were taken up by an uncritical press, and class-action lawyers scenting profit whether the charges were true or not. The Opel crisis upset GM not least because Herr Doktor of Laws Fleischer was no unknown quantity to Jim Mooney or Edgar. Difficult as conditions are in this country, however, my work abroad brings me in contact with such utterly distasteful and discouraging things that I still think our hope for the preservation of democracy here, and for the restoration at least in part of the world we used to know, lies in the compromises and reforms that Mr.
Seriously, I believe a freer exchange of goods and services among nations, including our own, would go far toward eliminating some of the strangeness in the things around us. What some of the a€?utterly distasteful and discouraging things abroada€? Edgara€™s work brought him into contact with are made clear by Professor Turnera€™s book. To fend off the creeping Nazi assault on its management and ownership (and to keep one of Opela€™s models in the running for the Volkswagen Hitler wanted for the masses), GM sought allies in what seemed the non-Nazi institution of Germanya€™s armed forces.
Edgara€™s reaction to this thought is not on record, but he would hardly have seen things that way. 4 The following month, Edgar, this time on behalf of the Automobile Manufacturers Association, conveyed the same message to a joint committee of five New York City Republican Party organizations, urging a free-trade plank in the GOPa€™s 1936 election platform. 8 General Motors Documents Relating to World War II Corporate Activities in Europe, Box 10, Folder 10069-10099, Sterling Memorial Library, Yale University.
9 For a comprehensive account of Edgara€™s Pamphlet House, see Glen Miranker BSIa€™s a€?Prolegomena to a History of The Pamphlet Housea€? in my Irregular Records of the Early a€™Forties. 10 Published in October 1933, and reviewed in the Saturday Review of Literature by Elmer Davis, though Edgar was not at that time a reader of it. 11 His first Irregular secretary at GM, Rosalie Mouillerat, once called Edgar a€?about the busiest person on earth at the moment,a€? in a reply by her dated December 6, 1940 to a letter from Vincent Starrett to her boss; see my Irregular Records of the Early a€™Forties, p. 15 See Michael Dobbs, a€?Ford and GM Scrutinized for Alleged Nazi Collaboration,a€? Washington Post, November 30, 1998. 16 The blogosphere nonetheless remains rife with allegations that GM was a witting collaborator in everything from creating German military power to use of slave-labor. Nervously I sat in the office, like everyone else unfortunate enough to sit there, looking at all the traffic of teachers and office staff.
Finally, I want to Thank you for not being insulted, and being understanding during faculty meetings.

In addressing barriers to free trade, he focused primarily on the domestic welfare of his talka€™s title. He examined the problem of agricultural surpluses, and the positive role they could play in a free-trade system.
But he was not blind to political nationalism, and the violence of revolutionary ideology; he had seen both in Europe.
Edgar championed free trade with not only idealistic principles but hard economic analysis, for example in a a€?Results of Depreciationa€? letter to the New York Times that was lengthier and more insightful than the newspapera€™s editorial prompting it. In Asia, a militaristic Japan occupying Manchuria withdrew from the League of Nations in 1933, harbinger of more aggression to come.
He created Pamphlet House, a private press for items he felt important to circulate further; and its first act was to reprint an essay by the historian Hendrik van Loon, A World Divided Is a World Lost.
For relaxation we know that he played tennis avidly, and James Morris said he also liked to build small elegant stone walls with his hands. Starrett was in China when Edgara€™s letter arrived in Chicago, and it was nearly a year before Starrett came home to find it a€” and over a year before Starrett finally managed to answer it at length. Their enthusiastic correspondence that followed is in Irregular Memories of the a€™Thirties. In Edgara€™s letter to him dated December 7, 1937, there is a suggestion that even before he learned of the BSI, he had been holding forth locally since reading The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. But in no time at all after that, Smith was increasingly their leader, eventually eclipsing Christopher Morley the BSIa€™s Gasogene but without harming the close friendship established between the two men. 1938 was a big year too, and not only because GM Export became the grander-sounding GM Overseas Operations: 1938 opened with a bitter struggle over control of Opel, for which GM had paid $33,300,000 in 1929.
While not necessarily a Nazi himself, Fleischer was using ties to the Nazi Party in the region and in Berlin to marginalize American authority inside and outside the plant.
Howard was forty-two years old, a Los Angeles native who bore a certain resemblance to Dashiell Hammett, and a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Business School. GM was not alone in being so charged: Ford, IBM, and other major companies were accused as well. Fleischer had worked several years in GM Exporta€™s New York offices starting in 1925, the year that Edgar returned from his overseas stint. It saw no way in any event to reject doing defense business with the new regime, and tried instead to obtain some advantage from what seemed inevitable. Two years later Rudolf Fleischera€™s grab for power gave Howard cause to rethink things, but by then GMa€™s freedom of maneuver in the German police state was growing smaller and smaller.


Reviewing my resume and the pat answers to stock educational questions, I looked around and tried to imagine that this might be the place I would get my first teaching job. After you observed my class where I had to send a student to time out for disrupting, you suggested I give him a book and paper so he could join in with the discussion. I know you must have been sensitive thinking you were some how putting your staff to sleep. I met you 10 years ago at the beginning of my teaching career, and here you are at the end of yours. His father, now sixty-nine, had gone from hatter to clerk, from clerk to book-keeper at Underwood Typewriter, and from that to the National Foreign Trade Council in New York, until far past the usual retirement age Edgar S. He did not lose his job like so many others in the early 1930s, but Peter Spivak pictured him a€?walking through the streets of New York seeing the apple sellers, some of whom he had known in another time and another way.a€? Many men in Big Business supported Herbert Hoovera€™s belt-tightening response to the crisis, and high protective tariffs like the Smoot-Hawley Act of 1930. He debunked, logically and statistically, with an excellent grasp of economic fundamentals, the belief that employment is harmed by free trade.
He warned that denial of free trade would lead to regimentation of industry and agriculture at home.
Roosevelt started his run for the Presidency in 1932, he called for a a€?new deala€? for the American people. In 1933 Edgar was appointed a vice president of the GM Export Company, and also a director of the American Manufacturing Export Association alongside World War flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker, a household name now president of North American Aviation. Edgar also had the habit of reading into the early hours of the morning, constantly expanding his horizons, and enjoying literature.
It prompted Edgar to start collecting, under Starretta€™s guidance, the other canonical scholarship existing at the time a€” that of T. Ostensibly intimidated more than he probably was by learning of the Baker Street Irregulars, he told Starrett that it had a€?confirmed me in my desire to win a place among the Irregulars. Fleischera€™s continued assaults on Osborna€™s role persisted until it became a firing matter, something that GMa€™s hierarchy and Osborn himself feared could precipitate an outright takeover of Opel by Berlin.
He had studied in Germany as a young man, then commanded a machine-gun company in the war against Germany before going to work for General Motors in 1920. In GMa€™s case, leading the charge was a techno-thriller writer named Edwin Black, whoa€™d already published a book accusing IBM of assisting Nazi Germany to carry out the Holocaust.
Those companies and others had done business with Germany in the 1930s, and no doubt had done things they came to regret while attempting to hold onto their interests against usurpation by the Nazi Party or opportunists like Rudolf Fleischer. They had been colleagues before Fleischer returned to Germany, and were once more after Fleischer joined Opel in 1929. As early as 1933, the year Hitler became Chancellor and FA?hrer of the Third Reich, Nazi representatives took control of the factory council representing Opel workers, and the RA?sselsheim plant became the scene of Nazi rallies and mandatory political exhortations of the workforce, with loudspeakers throughout the plant carrying Hitlera€™s speeches during the workday. This included manufacture at its Brandenburg plant of the German Armya€™s a€?Blitz truck,a€? while producing components for the Junkers aircraft company as a sub-contractor. The session was chaired by Republican lawyer Allen Dulles, brother of his partya€™s leading foreign policy expert and a future Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles a€” and himself a future wartime OSS chieftain and a postwar CIA official, eventually the CIAa€™s Director.
Looking back, all I can remember is the guy sitting next to me and how pissed I would be if he got the job. It was only when I say, a€?no computer, no newspapera€? in a formal one-page letter, that you wrote back a simple, a€?Sure.
I wona€™t say anything corny like, a€?You have been like a father to me.a€? I think I have talked more with you than I ever have with my own dad. Hounsel is right about a discussion she had with her kids today, you might be getting a phone call. Sixteen years later, when Edgar and Elmer Davis called upon President Harry Truman at the White House to present him with a copy of the BSI, Inc. That alone was of tremendous concern to Edgar and his colleagues, for the largest GM holding outside the United States happened to be the Opel works in Germany.
But he included a somber note: a€?There are just two things that can stop this trend that is underway.
And one day in 1936, perhaps for his birthday, his wife gave him a book she apparently had reason to believe that he would enjoy: The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, by a Chicago newspaperman named Vincent Starrett.
To summarize here: on October 15th Edgar wrote to Starrett (on GM Export Company stationery) a lengthy letter that not only lavishly praised the book, but presented a theory of Edgara€™s own about the date that Sherlock Holmes and Dr. The Opel family remained involved in it with members of the family on its now bi-national board of directors, and to the outside world Opel still appeared a German company despite GM ownership and a GM man, Cyrus Osborn, at its helm there in RA?sselsheim. An able and accomplished negotiator, his career was devoted to GMa€™s overseas interests, and he had the confidence of Edgara€™s superior Jim Mooney in New York. Chiming in from another angle a€” that GM had also set out deliberately to destroy Americaa€™s urban public transit after the war a€” was a House of Representatives staffer named Bradford Snell. In the end, to defend their records, some companies threw open their archives to eminent historians, with free rein to investigate and report.
While Graeme Howard on the scene carried the burden for GMa€™s hanging onto Opel, Edgar, as Jim Mooneya€™s right-hand man in New York, found himself involved in a personal way. Opela€™s management was pressed to stop employing Jews or doing business with Jewish firms. Not Dullesa€™s and Edgara€™s first meeting, though: Dulles had also been a presenter at the previous montha€™s American Academy of Political and Social Sciences in Philadelphia. I was subbing, taking any daily position, while at night, I tried to sell credit cards over the phone for MBNA.
I felt comfortable around you and looked to you for guidance on how to become both a better teacher and a more mature person. A lot was shared, and learned by both, I think, but what I always took away from our discussions was a wisdom that came with experience. Go get it.a€? Because it is a Pentium 166, and not a 133, I didna€™t have to label it for the district. Later that year, the student went on to bark, fight, yell at me, and eventually commit a house bill by pushing me. I enjoyed learning about your family and how you grew up in Kennet Square, and the values your father gave to you.
Edgar believed in free trade, and helped found the World Trade League in 1932 in order to campaign for monetary and tariff standards promoting it. Once on the spot, he took over the struggle with Fleischer and his Nazi allies, and after a few months of nerve-wracking machinations managed to preserve GM control of Opela€™s management and board a€” for the time being. In GMa€™s case it was Henry Ashby Turner, Jr., professor emeritus of history at Yale and author of German Big Business and the Rise of Hitler. No doubt Edgar wanted GM to prevail as much as Howard and Mooney did, but how he felt personally is suggested in a April 16, 1938 letter to Vincent Starrett in the middle of the Opel struggle. In 1937, the Nazi Party succeeded in installing an SS reserve officer as the planta€™s security chief, and an informer system throughout the workforce quickly followed.
It was a huge affair and Smith wrote the Declarations for the convention while Beverly and I typed our fingers to the bone. It was then, when I was playing with the daily question of a€?why did I go to college?a€?, that I got a call for an interview for a sixth grade position at H.B.
Between spring 1992 and fall 1994, I got married, worked at a day camp, subbed and long termed at Glasgow High School where I had a dictionary thrown at my head, taught freshman English at Del Tech, and struggled through 5 different subjects a day at Wilmington High. I just want you to know, his wisdom was passed on to you, and from you, to many you will never know. And he also argued for it publicly in his essay a€?Foreign Trade and the Domestic Welfarea€? in the July 1936 Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences.
But if Elmer Davis exaggerated a trifle, he was not wrong about Edgara€™s sympathies and political alignment.


The other is an exaggerated monetary disturbance, manifesting itself either in wild inflation or equally wild deflation. And Turnera€™s resulting General Motors and the Nazis: The Struggle for Control of Opel, Europea€™s Biggest Carmaker, published by Yale University Press in 2005, made Edwin Blacka€™s charges look flimsy.
Students have problems, and most of their behaviors are the way that they express their frustrations.
Hilton, and Snell was humiliated when Professor Hilton testified before Congress that Snell had egregiously distorted his work in a deeply dishonest way. And yelling at a kid isna€™t going to make them better, but listening gets to the heart of the matter. In the late 1940s, George Hilton had been an undergraduate at the University of Chicago, and a co-founder of the BSI scion society The Coptic Patriarchs.

It launched, during his busiest years at GM, a long period of scholarly research and writing unimaginable in terms of modern-day BSI leadership.

Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound.
Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments.
Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories.
The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity. However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results. One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed. However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure.
One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities. One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach. Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour. Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close. Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with. There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants.
Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip. If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments.
Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime.
We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months.
Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling. I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms. Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
