Although no longer writing for the Sun, Mencken remained a prominent board member. His relationship with the Newspaper Guild reflected the contradiction in his role as a free speech advocate: he refused to recognize the difference between an employee with no economic power advocating membership, and management officials, like himself, who pressured employees against their right to join unions. Mencken clung to the belief that a man's individual efforts must speak for him.
