  • Moritz A. Jagendorf was an Austrian-American folklore author. Jagendorf was born in Czernowitz, Austria-Hungary. He moved to New York around the age of 15. He earned his doctoral dental studies degree in 1916 from Columbia University. He helped revitalize the Pi Lambda Phi fraternity by founding the NY Alpha chapter. While practicing as a dentist, Jagendorf's interests remained in the folklore of Europe, Asia, and the United States. He wrote several stories for children based on folktales he had heard from these various cultures. He was a noted anarchist. He wrote for Hippolyte Havel's Revolt and co-edited The Road to Freedom with Harry Kelly. In an interview in 1978 he said, "The only progress is in the individual, in you yourself; and through progress you better the whole world. And that is as far as you can go. I said that in 1914 to Leonard Abbott and again in the 1920s and 1930s, and I still say it today." He helped to found the Free Theatre, was director of the Children's Playhouse, and was active in the following organizations: Mohegan Colony Association, Story League, Green Room Club, Overseas Press and the New York Folktale Society.
