Profile of Dorothy Day
Her daughter, Tamar (1926-2008), was born of what Day describes as her “common-law marriage” to Forster Batterham. Their relationship, loving and committed but marked by a disagreement over religion, ended when she had Tamar baptized… The Worker movement caught on fast and continues today. The newspaper’s circulation grew to 150,000 by 1936 but declined during World War II because of its pacifist stance. Catholic Worker houses of hospitality still exist in America and abroad… Her 1952 autobiography is The Long Loneliness (Harper and Row).
