Evjue and <i>Capital Times</i> Staff | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
William T. Evjue (seated on the desk), editor and publisher of the Madison <i>Capital Times</i>, with members of his staff. Evjue was well-known for his journalistic crusades, perhaps most notable being his opposition to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy. Even before McCarthy became a national figure after his February 1950 speech at Wheeling, West Virginia, the <i>Capital Times</i> experienced one of the senator's anti-communist attacks. McCarthy charged that city editor Cedric Parker was a Communist and that the <i>Capital Times</i> was the Communist Party mouthpiece in Wisconsin. Identified newspapermen in this photograph taken at the <i>Capital Times</i> office are John Sammis and Frank Custer (on the left) and Havens Wilbur and Harry D. Sage to Evjue's left.
