photo of Marv Rich


This is a photo of Marv Rich (right, coat and tie), the Community Relations Director for CORE, 2nd only to the national director James Farmer. A graduate of Washington University, he entered college about the same time he came into CORE at 16 years old. He was also a founder of St. Louis CORE and participated in the Route 40 Freedom Rides.

He had previously worked as a trade union organizer and administrator both locally and nationally. In the Army he served as a script chief for the country’s only psychological warfare section. In an interview, he stated his job was essentially to come up with ways to convince people not to fight.

The identity of the other two in the photo is not known at this time.
