The Anti-Literacy League was a semi-fascistic organization that sprung up in 1930’s America, around the same time as the German American Bund.  It was founded and run by Bernard Putnam, a New Jersey flower pot manufacturer, who was deeply uncomfortable with the sharp increase of written words used by the public to describe various things.  But while the Bund was intent on critcizing Roosevelt, the New Deal, Jews, and everything else, Putnam merely didn’t like people reading so much.  This eventually led the Anti-Literacy League to attempt to find it’s own separate audience, organizing meetings by word of mouth, talking loudly in libraries, and being huge fans of radio theater performances.  Putnam’s untimely death brought an end to the organization. Without any kind of written transcription of events, the group quickly faded from memory.
