Washington Wire

August 1955
New Republic;8/29/55, Vol. 133 Issue 9, p2
The article profiles the President Dwight D. Eisenhower's chief of staff in the White House, Sherman Adams, who manages everything in the House while the President remain outside. Since he entered the White House, Adams has been remarkably anonymous considering the scope of his powers. Nobody questions that he is honest and courageous according to his lights. While, the question is how bright his lights are. During the Army-McCarthy hearings, Joe McCarthy insisted that Adams was responsible for cooking up an Administration plot to destroy him, a charge which, although never proved, added a cubit to Adams' stature.
