Staff Person: Maury York

Description:

This pamphlet by Joseph P. Kamp denounces efforts by Frederick Woltman of Scripps-Howard newspapers to “destroy” anti-communist leader Joseph McCarthy. According to Kamp, “Red Fred” Woltman “stabbed Joe McCarthy in the back . . . in the pages of the Scripps-Howard newspapers . . . Just how much the cause of communism will be helped . . . by this foul betrayal will depend on how well the public comes to know and understand . . . the treachery of this modern Judas.”

This and many other pro- and anti-communist tracts are available in the Hoover Collection on International Communism. The call number for this pamphlet is E748.M143 K36 1954.
