Hide Profile

Director of the Foreign Language Information Service, Josephine Aspinwall Roche (1886-1976) was educated at Vassar and Columbia University. Before coming to the Service, she was chief probation officer and director of girls' work in the Denver (Colorado) juvenile court, inspector of amusements and policewomen in Denver, and special investigator for the National Consumers' League. The FLIS served sixteen nationality groups; its purpose was to interpret America to the immigrants and vice versa. It was organized by the federal government during World War II and continued to work with the cooperation of the government, sending press releases to foreign language newspapers and providing other information and services. The FLIS later merged to become the American Council for Nationalities Service.
