An Historical Exploration of Father Charles E. Coughlin's Influence

Screenshot
The University of Detroit-Mercy has created this digital exploration of Father Charles E. Coughlin in order to scholastically examine his role in influencing the hearts and minds of Americans from the late 1920s through World War II. In the 1930s, Coughlin was well known for his support of FDR and as a social commentator concerned with predatory capitalism. Later, in his radio-broadcasting career, his commentaries turned quite anti-Semitic and he was roundly chastised in many quarters. On this site, visitors can read a biography of Coughlin and also consider educational materials related to his life and times. These materials include a detailed bibliography, lesson plans, and a range of primary materials, such as transcripts of his radio broadcasts and images from his newspaper, "Social Justice."
