New Light on the LATTIMORE CASE

December 1954
New Republic;12/27/54, Vol. 131 Issue 26, preceding p2
This article states that from the summer of 1951 into the following winter, Pat McCarran's Subcommittee heard a battalion of witnesses testifying about the Institute of Pacific Relations and Owen Lattimore. He was accused of being a Soviet agent in U.S. In the late '40's smoke rising from a dispute between Lattimore and his opponents within the IPR had caught the eye of the FBI and resulted in an investigation of charges against Lattimore, the Justice Department concluded that there was no basis for an espionage prosecution against him. Even those who hold that Lattimore meant to lie in his statement regard this charge as weak.
