Florida Jewry Proud
Os Josef Gallinger
By ANGUS LAIRD
An able address on, “Majorities,
Minorities and God” was delivered
to the Men’s Club of the Presbyter
ian Church of Gainesville last Mon
day evening by Mr. Josef Gal
linger, of Jacksonville, who came
to the United States from Ger
many two years ago. One of the
tests of a nation’s maturity and
greatness is the way it treats its
minorities, regardless of their race,
religion or culture, stated Mr. Gal
linger, who made frequent refer
ences to history to illustrate his
point. He also referred to history

in proving his thesis that persecu

terioration and decline, as illus
trated by the experiences of Pal

pire, Spain arid other great states
of the past. No nation, state or
empire can long maintain its ex
istence when it preaches or follows
a doctrine of hatred for others who

do not share their race, religion or
culture, Mr. Gallinger declared.
Mr. Gallinger, in spite of the fact
that he has lived in this country
only two years, has a'good com
mand of the English language and
is a forceful speaker. The club of
townspeople, faculty and students
of the University rounded applaud
ed him at the close of his talk.
Mr. Gallinger has been a stu
dent at the University during the
present year and graduated
with a degree of Bachelor of Arts
Monday night.
Two and a half years ago Jo
sef S. Gallinger came to America
to escape Hitler’s persecution of
the Jews. With him were his wife
and his six-months old daughter.
The 26-year old graduate of Teach
ers College, Wuerzburg, Germany,
who spoke but little English, found
a job as religious teacher in New
York. After six months’ work
there he answered a newspaper
ad out of Jacksonville, Fla., and
the Jacksonville Jewish Center se
lected him over strong competition
as an instructor in their religious
schools.
He was well prepared for this
position. He had studied under
some of the most famous teachers
of modern education at the Univ
ersity of Wuerzburg and after
having served as a principal of a
small-town school for a short time
he had been called to the teaching
staff of one of the oldest and
largest high schools of Germany,
the Philantropin in Frankfurt on
Main. This high school is one of
the few non-English institutions,
whose graduates are admitted to
the University of 'Cambridge, Eng
land, without examination. It is
said there are only three schools
enjoying such a rating on all of
the European continent.
Josef Gallinger had not long
been in Jacksonville before he de
termined to further his studies,
and entered the University of Flor
ida’s second summer session in
1939. He continued his studies
during the school year, coming
here first three days then once
each week, using the night for part
of his commuting. Gallinger might

THEY’RE STILL THERE, UNCLE!
have entered into graduate study
immediately on registering in the
university, but he elected to first
secure a bachelor’s degree from an
American institution, to lay a
firm general foundation for his
work in the New World.
This week he received a
bachelor’s degree from the Univ
ersity of Florida. His scholarly
achievements have been acknow
ledged by his election to Pi Gam
ma Mu and Kappa Delta Pi, hon
orary fraternities of social science
and education, respectively.
With his German degree, and
his degree from the University of
Florida, Gallinger intends to con
tinue teaching in the state. He
has not yet announced his choice
of two offers tendered him.
Joe Gallinger was bom in 1912
in Bavaria, Southern Germany,
where his father still lives. His
mother died two years ago. One
of his two sisters with her family
has followed him to Jacksonville,
while another sister resides in
one of the small nations just re
cently invaded by German forces.
Joe, having been president of
the student body of his college in
Wuerzburg for the two terms of
his senior year, shows keen inter
est in American university life.
‘‘The University of Florida, and
all of the people I’ve met in this
state, have been kind to me, and
I am extremely grateful for this
kindness,” Gallinger, who now
speaks English excellently, said
today. “The cooperative spirit
among the teachers, the outstand
ing Honor System and self gov
ernment of the students, and the
opportunity afforded to all boys
who are sincerely interested in
college, make the university a real
democratic and a notable institu
tion,” he added. The Jewish fra
ternities have greatly assisted Gal
linger as well as the Jacksonville
Jewish Center.
His degree was one of 382
conferred Monday night, and the
fact that he is one of the special
group whose diploma carried
the added words “With Honors”
makes Gallinger indeed a very
happy 1940 U. of F. graduate.
