Philip Randolph, Oswald Garrison Villard, Roger N. Baldwin and Rabbi Abraham Cronbach. This Committee's primary activity was to create and administer questionnaires for members of Congress and congressional candidates on such subjects as conscription, civil liberties, labor issues, world organization membership such as the United Nations, and foreign relief aid.
