The Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial

Rockefeller Speeds Marxist "Science" Internationalism

To emphasize the synchronization of the reversal of the attitude of the Rockefeller Empire toward Soviet Russia, the origin of the Rockefeller-Soviet Axis, and the undercover speeding up of its support and dissemination of the Marxist, or so-called "social", sciences, consideration of the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial has been deferred to this point.

It has been related how Rockefeller, in connection with the Colorado Fuel & Iron strike, undertook to rehabilitate himself in public opinion by engaging the Rockefeller Foundation in the field of labor relations to carry out his plans of regimentation of workers under the guidance of W. L. Mackenzie King; but that instead of allaying, it merely stirred up public resentment. In 1917, as a consequence, the Rockefeller Foundation dropped its "social science" plans. But this move was merely a temporary expedient to disarm suspicion.

Rockefeller established the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial shortly thereafter. Its true purpose proved to be the carrying out of his labor relations and "social science" program. During the first years of its existence, the intent to use the Memorial to seduce and take over control of labor organization was masked by a "charity" front. During the years when the spotlight of publicity rested on it, the Memorial operated as a strictly "charitable" device and merely contributed to various organized charities that Rockefeller dominated or sought to take over. This pose of "charity" is well illustrated in the list of principal grants made by the Memorial in the years 1919-1922.

In 1923, when its activities were no longer front page news, the Memorial began to divert its funds to the support of Marxist and Communist causes, and the "social sciences." In 1923, it granted $50,000 for the support of the Russian Student Fund Inc., that was renewed annually until 1927.

In 1928 the Memorial was merged with the Rockefeller Foundation completely, except for a grant of ten millions to establish the Spelman Fund, which has been described. The organizations supported or established with the Memorial funds became the key agencies, the social science centers, of the Rockefeller Empire's totalitarian conspiracy, as has been related in connection with the Rockefeller Foundation. So it was that the Foundation sneaked into the field of political propaganda, through the Memorial, in spite of the provisions of the law denying tax exemption to foundations thus engaged, circumventing enlightened public resentment; and it set about effectuating the Empire's deal with the Soviets.

The Marxist complexion of the Memorial's activities is clearly indicated by its substantial grants to Harold Laski's London School of Economics and Political Science. This was the haven of the Fabian Socialists and of Marxists ranging further to the left, including the Communists; and it was their principal forum and propaganda agency in the English-speaking world. The initial grant made in 1924 was $115,000. This was supplemented by an additional $875,000 grant in 1927 and by another of $100,000 in the following year. The total support of this hotbed of Communism and Socialism amounted to more than a million dollars by 1929. Since the staff of the school comprises the leaders of the British Labor Party, it is apparent the Rockefeller interests were buying control of the Laborites with the Memorial grants.

When the Memorial was merged with the Rockefeller Foundation, in 1928, the latter continued to support the School. The grants listed in the Foundation reports are as follows:

Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial $1,090,000.00
1929 Building extension 15,594.69

1934 Building 33,274.04
1935 Departmental Development 12,477.84
1935 Research 9,082.50
1939 General Expense 51,250.00
1949 General Expense 50,900.00
Total $1,685,820.37

By 1926, the Memorial was launched on an intensive program of fostering the Marxist "social sciences" in both the educational and political spheres throughout the world. It subsidized the Institute for International Studies at Geneva with $100,000 in 1926; the Social Science Research Council with $1,834,500 in 1927 and $165,000 in 1928; the American Council of Learned Societies with $15,000; the Fellowship Program of Social Sciences with $250,000; and the Institute of International Education with $240,000.

In charge of this phase of their activities the Rockefellers placed Beardsley Ruml, who had garnered his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, after a year with the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Following the merger of the Memorial with the Foundation Ruml was made Dean of the Social Science Division of his master's University of Chicago and Professor of Education. In 1934, he became treasurer of R. H. Macy and Co. Inc. and in 1945 became chairman of its board of directors. He is a director of Muzak Corp. and of a number of thought-control enterprises controlled by Senator William B. Benton of the firm of Benton & Bowles, which has been closely identified with Rockefeller and New Deal activities. These include Encyclopedia Britannica Films and Encyclopedia Britannica Co.

He is trustee of Rockefeller's Museum of Modern Art; director of the Rockefeller subsidized National Bureau of Economic Research that so strongly influences the policies of our government from behind the scenes; and director of the General American Investors Co. that is headed by Rockefeller's former son-in-law, David M. Milton. Both Ruml and Benton are members of the Foreign Office of the Rockefeller Empire, the Council On Foreign Relations, in which Alger Hiss and his associate, Owen Lattimore, play key roles.

Ruml is also the author of tax bills that are so helpful to his masters. He conceived the withholding device whereby the taxes are exacted from pay envelopes, which throws the onus of collection on the employer. Oil producers pay taxes on only a small fraction of their earnings; and they pay nothing on overseas earnings. From 1928 to 1933 Ruml was a trustee of the Roscnwald Fund, acting with its head, Embree, former vice-president of the Rockefeller Foundation, during a period when the Rosenwald Fund became as notorious for its support of left wing and outright Communist organizations as is the Rockefeller Foundation. Ruml was associated with Hutchins, Benton, Shuster and Niebuhr, all of Rockefeller's Council On Foreign Relations, and with MacLeish in the "Commission On Freedom Of The Press." This Commission has advocated the adoption of complete thought control, by censorship of the press on behalf of the totalitarian conspirators. Ruml was a member of a group of Rockefeller associates, that seized upon atom-bomb hysteria as an excuse for a "Committee to Frame a World Constitution". Ruml and his Rockefeller subsidized associates, have been the guiding "geniuses" of the New Deal and Fair Deal. Their activities have been directly supervised, as in the United Nations, by the Rockefellers.
