Background For Peter Maurin

Summary: A detailed description of Mott Street’s environs and the people who lived there as a backdrop to writing about Peter Maurin–“a genius, a saint, an agitator, a lecturer, a poor man and a shabby tramp; all in one.” Reviews his early life, much of the story told in Peter’s own words. (The Catholic Worker, October 1944, 3, 6. DDLW #405).
