SLU Removes Statue of Jesuit Founder
from Jim Holt, thegatewaypundit.com
FYI, George Creel, chairman of the first USG propaganda agency, the Committee on Public Information (1917-1919) whose father was an alcoholic Catholic, was an admirer of De Smet. See my forthcoming article, "Janus Faced Public Diplomacy: George Creel and Walter Lippmann during the Cold War."
On propaganda and the Catholic Church, see.
St. Louis University removed a statue of famous Jesuit Missionary Pierre-Jean De Smet S.J. praying over two American Indians.
