Papers, 1908-1950 (primarily 1927-1949), of Verne P. Kaub, a Wisconsin newspaperman, publicist, and religious activist. In the 1930s Kaub’s concern focused on the influence of communism and socialism on American religion, government, and free enterprise. Much of the material in the collection documents his efforts to combat what he saw as the growing strength of communism within the Congregational Church, especially the Church’s Council for Social Action, and in American Protestant churches in general. In 1949 these concerns, among others, led to his founding of the American Council of Christian Laymen.
