William English Walling (1877–1936) (known as "English" to friends and family) was an American labor reformer and socialist born in Louisville, Kentucky. He was the grandson of William Hayden English, the Democratic candidate for vice president in 1880, and was born into wealth. He was educated at the University of Chicago and at Harvard Law School.[1] He was a co-founder of the NAACP,[2] and founded the National Women's Trade Union League in 1903. In 1908 he published Russia's Message, a book inspired by the social unrest sparked by the abortive Russian Revolution of 1905.[3] He was a member of the Socialist Party of America, but quit in 1917 due to the party's stance against U.S. involvement in World War I. He later worked full-time for the American Federation of Labor.[1] He was married to Anna Strunsky, a Jewish immigrant and an aspiring novelist from San Francisco; their marriage ended during World War I, in part due to their disagreement over the United States' role in the conflict.[4]...
