Trilling – Barzun (1932)

As far as I know, the first time Lionel Trilling and Jacques Barzun appeared in the same New York Times article was in 1932, when they are listed among the signers protesting government mistreatment of striking coal miners in Kentucky. Mr. Trilling was the lone signer affliliated with Hunter College, while Mr. Barzun’s name is misspelled “J. M. Barsun” under Columbia College. New York Times, March 3, 1932
