Joe Toner

Joe Toner began his undergraduate career at the University of Minnesota in 1934. He was a member of the Interracial Committee of the Negro Student Council and a signer of the Grissom Report on segregated housing. He was listed on Ray Chase‚Äôs list of “Radical Leaders,” which focused on the fact that he was a Jew and an activist at the University of Minnesota. After graduating in 1939, Toner worked for Governor Elmer Benson. He lived in New York City after leaving Minnesota, but that is the only information that we have.
