1. Student honors 1930s anti-fascist war hero, ‘the best of us’ (Berkeley News, August 21, 2019). "Merriman was one of at least 10 Berkeley students from diverse academic fields and racial backgrounds — and some 2,800 U.S. citizens — who voluntarily fought in the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War to defend the Spanish government against rebels backed by Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. At the time, American public sentiment favored maintaining strict neutrality in European conflicts." (Submitted on July 14, 2020.)
