Spanish Civil War commander speaks to club

Sept. 28, 1937 — Twenty-five-year-old Steve Daduk,
commander of all Americans, among them three University students,
fighting for the Spanish government in the country’s civil war,
spoke at the Progressive Club’s first meeting in the Union
Ballroom. Daduk, who studied electrical engineering at the City
College of New York, turned down a job upon graduating to become an
aviator in Spain. A leg wound, one of six injuries he received in
action, forced Daduk to give up flying. He started as a private in
a German division and advanced until he became commander of the
American troops, the Abraham Lincoln and George Washington
Battalions, and the Canadian-American MacKenzie-Papenau
Battalion.
