The Progressive Magazine takes on Senator McCarthy in 1954

McCarthy: a documented record


In 1954, The Progressive Magazine published an updated version of The McCarthy Record for its 45th Anniversary edition. The original report was produced in 1952 from the Senator's public documents by the Wisconsin Citizens' Committee on McCarthy's Record, a non-partisan group drawn together by their "deep concern for the consequences of McCarthy's conduct," for use during Sen. Joseph McCarthy's re-election campaign. Although the group disbanded after the election, the records were given to the editor of The Progressive who condensed and expanded upon the original for the 1954 edition of the magazine. In a series of articles, The Progressive sought to show the danger that Wisconsin's junior Senator posed to the nation. This resource is made available through the generosity of The Progressive magazine.
