The Bureau for Intercultural Education (BIE) emerged out of a reorganization of the original Service Bureau accomplished during the period 1939-1941. During the next ten years, the Bureau for Intercultural Education assumed leadership over a number of influential programs in the field of intercultural education, including workshop training for teachers, scientific research in the emerging field of human relations and the establishment of field centers in such cities as Detroit, Gary, and Battle Creek. The Bureauís major financial backers were the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League of BíNai Bírith, and the Julius Rosenwalk Fund. The first director of the vamped Bureau was Cole, who served from 1939 to 1944.
