Title:
Landon Chronicles (1947-1952): Kenneth on McCarthyism and How He Was the Object of Drastic Scrutiny (hour 67, clip 20)
Date:
1947-1952
Description:
Roosevelt died before the end of the war, of course. Joseph McCarthy got going with his anti-communism in early 1950. Kenneth came into his office there one morning to find that his files had been dumped all over the floor. He gave the Haskell lectures at the University of Chicago and from that time on he became the object of drastic scrutiny. In his book on Southeast Asia Kenneth mentions Ho Chi Minh, commenting on his fluent use of the English language and his wide knowledge of political philosophies. Kenneth was questioned numerous times by two or three FBI inquisitors who would ask him all sorts of questions. (Length 5:04)
