Mary Cox Lectures on Feeding Hungry Children after World War I

Mary E. Cox, recipient of a 2016 Fred and Ellen Lewis/JDC Archives Fellowship, gave her public lecture on “Feeding Hungry Children After World War I.” The lecture focused on the mapping of feeding centers in Vienna in the post-World War I period.

Mary E. Cox received a PhD from the University of Oxford and is a Departmental Lecturer in Economic and Social History at the University of Oxford. Her research in the JDC Archives focused on JDC’s role in feeding Viennese civilians and the relationship that the Joint had with the American Relief Administration (ARA).

The JDC Archives Fellowships allow scholars engaged in graduate level, post-doctoral, or independent study to conduct research in the JDC Archives, either in New York or Jerusalem. All fellows give a public presentation on their research; watch more of these JDC fellowship lectures here.
