From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Isidore Singer (1859, Hranice (Přerov District), Moravia - d. 1939, New York City) was an editor of the Jewish Encyclopedia and founder of the American League for the Rights of Man.

Singer studied at the Universities of Vienna and Berlin, receiving his Ph.D. in 1884.[1] He became literary secretary to the French ambassador in Vienna. From 1887, he worked in Paris in the press bureau of the French foreign office and was active in the campaign on behalf of Alfred Dreyfus.

Singer moved to New York City in 1895 where he raised the money for the Jewish Encyclopedia he had envisioned and subsequently edited the twelve-volume work (1901–1906) himself.
