Winter Quarters – The Dodgers and Democracy

Saturday Feb 5, 1944

Brooklyn has received national recognition! According to The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the Boro has been praised for appointing Herbert T. Miller, “a Negro,” foreman of the Kings County Grand Jury last month and continuing him in that position through this month as well. The news was even widely spread in South, a fact that pleased Miller. He said, “People think of the Dodgers when they think of Brooklyn. They forget its great institutions, its churches, its temples, and its basic love of tolerance and understanding.” Good news: The Allies have hurled Nazi forces back from Rome. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that a Nazi tank advance was “slashed to pieces.”
