Ten distinguished members of my faculty convened and unanimously declared me guilty of "deviousness, artfulness, and indirection hardly to be expected of a University colleague." I had refused, first before the House Committee on Un-American Activities and then before these juries of professors, to answer yes or no to the question, was I a Communist. The juries could assume (with that background and in the year 1954) that their recommendation that I be fired would mean my complete expulsion from the profession.
