ABSTRACT
This article focuses on Paul Crouch, best-paid of all U.S. government career informers against Communists and alleged Communists, is a mild-mannered but fiercely determined man with a sense of mission, a long and still-continuing affinity for secret-lodge operations, and a persecution complex. In his checkered career, Crouch has had some few years of relative prominence, or notoriety, separated by periods of obscurity, during which he did odd jobs. He now thinks of himself as having been a pretty important Communist functionary during the Twenties and Thirties, representative of the American party to Executive Committee, Communist International. He went to Moscow. As a soldier, in 1925, he was court-martialed and convicted of scheming Red infiltration of the armed forces. Sentenced to 40 years imprisonment and dishonorable discharge, he actually served about 26 months, ending with a year and 10 months in the Alcatraz Army disciplinary barracks.
