Documents related to the trial of convicted Communist Alger Hiss
The Alger Hiss Story: The Search for Truth.
In the height of the McCarthy era, many people were brought before the House Un-American Activities Committee to respond to charges that they were involved in Communist activities. Alger Hiss, President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, was one of the most well-known individuals called before the committee in 1948. Though Hiss denied the charges, he was convicted and served 44 months in prison. This site explores the Hiss case and the early Cold War years.
