Emma Goldman was an anarchist and writer. She was born in the Russian Empire to a Jewish family in 1869 and died in Toronto on 14 May 1940. In a letter to fellow anarchist Alexander Berkman dated 5 February 1935, Emma wrote, "As far as I know now Milly Desser and I will return to Toronto the 15th of March. I will have some lectures there which the new group will arrange, mostly it will deal with some phase of sex, birth control, the revolt of youth and possible crime. They are the only subjects that draw. And I simply can't afford to face further dificits [sic]. My address in Toronto will again be 471 Brunswick Ave. But keep on writing me here until the 15th of next month."
