Maurice Samuel was born in Rumania [sic] in 1895 and was educated in England. He came to the United States in 1914. He was from 1917 to 1919 in the American army in France. Immediately after the war he served as interpreter at the Peace Conference and with the Reparations Commissions in Berlin and Vienna, returning to American in 1921. Since then he has traveled extensively in this country and abroad, partly as lecturer and partly to acquire information.
His major interest for nearly fifty years has been the position of the Jewish people in the Western world; of his twenty books fifteen are concerned with the exposition of Jewish values or examinations of the relations between the Jewish and Christian worlds. He has occupied himself particularly with the problem of anti-Semitism as a feature of Christian civilization and with its effects on Christendom and Jewry. Mr. Samuel has devoted over three years to research into the source material of the Beiliss case, the subject of Blood Accusation.
Mr. Samuel's present residence is in New York..
