When Eleanor Roosevelt Came to Visit Hunter College, Student Body President Abzug was on Stage to Greet Her.

At Hunter, Abzug was already honing her skills as an activist, demonstrating and marching, "to protest the spread of Nazism and the American, British and French trade embargoes against the legal Spanish Republican government during the civil war in Spain."


Notes 1. "to protest the spread..." quote from from Bella Abzug, Bella! : Ms. Abzug Goes to Washington, Mel Ziegler, ed (New York : Saturday Review Press, 1972) 86.
