M. Louise Hunt, World War I Resister

Presentation by Kimberly Jensen. In 1918, Portland librarian M. Louise Hunt refused to purchase a U.S. World War I bond. The immediate public assaults against Hunt led to her resignation. Hunt’s case provides a lens through which to examine opposition to war and claims to civil liberties. Ms. Jensen is professor of History and Gender Studies at Western Oregon University. She is the author of Mobilizing Minerva: American Women and the First World War (2008).
