The Weinbergs collaborated on books of other topics as well: on journalists who uncovered political corruption (The Muckrakers); on pacifist writers and philosophers (Instead of Violence); on histories of thought concerning ideal communities (Passport to Utopia); and on early rebellious thinkers (Some Dissenting Voices). Arthur and Lila Weinberg lectured extensively on Darrow and other topics. Both Weinbergs were members of the Society of Midland Authors and active in the Clarence Darrow Community Center. They were close friends with lawyer and author Elmer Gertz. Arthur Weinberg died January 28, 1989.
