Marks, Harry Hananel


MARKS, HARRY HANANEL (1855–1916), British journalist and politician. Born in London, Marks was a son of David Woolf Marks (1811–1909), a prominent Reform rabbi. He took up journalism in the U.S. and worked five years on the New York World and Daily Mining News. Returning to England in 1883, he established and edited Financial News and wrote a book, Small Change, or Lights and Shades of New York (1882). In 1889–98 he was a member of London County Council and was elected a Conservative member of Parliament in 1895–1900 and 1904–09. Marks was a bitter anti-Zionist. In 1879, however, he wrote a satirical work denouncing antisemitism, Down With the Jews! A Meeting of the Society for Suppressing the Jewish Race.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
