Sample text

Even after the McCarthy era petered out, Hoover remained obsessed with Communism. J. , J. Edgar Hoover was the youngest son of Dickerson Naylor Hoover, who worked for the Coast Guard and Geodetic Survey, and Annie Marie Scheitlin Hoover, daughter of Swiss mercenaries and niece of the Swiss honorary consul general to the United States. In high school, the young Hoover excelled in many subjects and became captain of his cadet corps. He then studied law in a work-study program for government employees at George Washington University while working at the Library of Congress.

THE SENATE INTERNAL SECURITY SUBCOMMITTEE The Senate Internal Security Subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee was yet another key congressional committee on the hunt for Communists during the McCarthy era. Chaired first by Senator Pat McCarran (D-NV), it was formed by the Internal Security Act of 1950, more commonly known as the McCarran Act. The Act required American Communist Party members to register with the Attorney General and made it possible to exclude or deport Communists and members of other organizations considered to be dangerous to public safety.

A good example of that collaboration was the “Responsibilities Program” under which the FBI secretly notified governors or other high-ranking state and local officials of alleged Communists in their employ. LECTURE SIX B. Especially after Hoover became disillusioned with what he felt was the Truman administration’s reluctance to fire subversive employees, the FBI leaked sensitive material to congressional investigators. C. The Bureau leaked similar material to friendly journalists. D. Because these leaks were unauthorized, Hoover was adamant about insisting that the recipients conceal the source.
