Interview with Erle Johnston
QUESTION 30
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT SORT OF INFORMATION DID YOU HEAR ABOUT HIM? ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR? BECAUSE I KNOW HE WAS A LEADING MEMBER…

Erle Johnston:

Well, if I have to go into names, my goodness alive, we have Bob Moses, we could have Tom Braden, Ann Braden, oh, I don't know, you talking about something now that's twenty five years ago, but those were names who were on those lists. Now we did not say they were Communists, we said they were identified as being on the list of the House Un-American Activities Committee and suspected Communists as well as the Senate Internal Security Committee, which at that time Senator Eastland was the chairman of.
