The Margaret Sanger Papers


Fawcett, James Waldo ( ? - ? )

Editor. Fawcett, who served as Margaret Sanger's secretary around 1915-1916, was the editor of The Trial of William Sanger. Published by The Birth Control Review in 1917, the pamphlet summarized the trial for which William Sanger was convicted and imprisoned in 1915. In 1919, Fawcett became the editor of The Modernist, a monthly magazine of arts and letters. Margaret Sanger and Fawcett had a falling out in 1924, when Fawcett borrowed a list of funding contacts but, according to Sanger, never returned it.
