Ellen McClay's introduction to what she considers the malignancy of UNESCO began with a controversy in Los Angeles' schools in 1951 over the rewriting of American textbooks-books which eliminated patriotism, the uniqueness of America's government, promoting instead a world super government, a program from which UNESCO not only has never deviated, but has branched into many other areas of American life such as ecology, religion, abortion (labeled population control), human rights over property rights, producing chaos in our once relatively stable society.
During those years she addressed many different organizations including legislative committees of California and the U.S. Senate, publishing monthly widely read documentaries, which earned editorials and attacks from many so-called "liberal" publications, along with a few spots in the Congressional Record.
In the Nixon era she retired to work in the health food industry as supervisor of a dozen California health food stores, eventually becoming a representative for a national manufacturer, while writing feature stories and maintaining a column in a health food magazine.
Ellen McClay attended school in many states, concluding her early school career in Cambridge, Mass., on a scholarship to a private girls school. Since then she intermittently attended the University of California, Irvine and Orange Coast College. At 69 in order to move from California to an isolated Arizona valley, she returned to school once again to learn medical transcription at which she is still employed sixteen years later. She is the author of In the Presence of Our Enemies (Authorhouse, 2007), a project of five years duration drawing from her decades of research on UNESCO.
