||J. B. S. (Jacob Benjamin Salutsky) Hardman (1882-1968) was a Russian-born author,
social philosopher, and editor and leader who served the Amalgamated Clothing Workers
of America as director of education and cultural activities and as editor of its organ,
The Advance(1920-44). He also edited
Naye Welt, a Yiddish-language socialist weekly, and
American Labor Monthly. He organized the American Labor Press Association, and was chairman of the Inter-Union
Institute for Labor and Democracy (publisher of
