Biographical History   Alice Sachs Hamburg was born in 1905 in Wilton, South Dakota to Jewish immigrants from Lithuania. She came into the world at the Wilton Coal Mining Company Hospital. Her parents arrived in North Dakota in 1904 as part of a colony of 50 Jewish families organized by the Jewish Agricultural Aid Society to settle in north central Burleigh County. Her father farmed and worked in the coal mine during the winters. Alice moved to California in 1924 to attend Fresno State University and then later the University of California, Berkeley. She married Sam Hamburg, the noted California agricultural pioneer and political activist, in 1926. Alice Hamburg became an active California political activist and leader in the women's peace movement. Her activities included teaching migrant laborer children, co-founding the Citizens' Committee Against the Loyalty Oath, and a life-long affiliation with the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and Women Strike for Peace. similar items
