Sept. 30, 1941: A judge recommends the deportation of Harry Bridges, head of the International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union, a decision that was cheered by The Times. Of course, Bridges was never deported, despite a prolonged campaign to send him back to Australia. He died in San Francisco in 1990.

One Response to Judge Urges U.S. to Deport Union Leader Harry Bridges

  1. Sir,

    It is strange that you mention the Harry Bridges case. My cousin, Aubrey Grossman, was Bridges’ attorney, and through him Bridges (born in Australia) was able to stay in the United States, despite his being an unrepentent Communist, as was my cousin. Aubrey, a fixture in San Francisco, attended UCLA and was a member of their football team in the 1930s. Aubrey died in 1999.
