Access and Use

Biographical/Historical Note

The Slovene American newspaper Glas Naroda (The People's Voice) was the second to be founded in the United States. It began to appear in 1893 in New York City, and was founded, financed, and edited by Frank Sakser, who had studied at the National Printery in Ljubljana. A liberal and socially radical publication, Glas Naroda competed with the Catholic Amerikanski Slovenec. Both Ivan Grilec and Anton Murnik, who had worked for the latter paper, also contributed to Glas Naroda. Glas Naroda was instrumental in establishment of the South Slavonic Catholic Union, and became the organization's official organ.
