Charles Lenz (1840-1914) was a journalist, author and editor in the U.S. Although he was born and educated in Germany, he served in the U.S. Civil War and participated in the suppression of the New York City draft riots in 1864. He edited several New York German language newspapers as well as Original Rights Magazine and Capital and Labor. An ardent abolitionist and Republican, he concentrated his literary efforts on "progressive Protestantism" and anti-Catholicism. Collection consists of manuscripts and typescripts of portions of his posthumously published work Cassock and Sword (1915), an analysis of the future of American politics in terms of an international Catholic conspiracy.
