Portrait of founder Louis N. Hammerling, ca.1912

The American Association of Foreign Language Newspapers was founded by Louis Nicholas Hammerling in 1908.[1] It served as an intermediary between "respectable national advertisers", and the foreign-language newspapers that profited from publishing advertisements.[2] Frances Kellor[3] led the effort after Hammerling's patriotism came under question ca.1918.[2][4][5] Critics included Robert Ezra Park.[6]
