ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a series of court cases. The current issue is the constitutionality of the 1952 Gwinn Amendment to the National Housing Act. It provides, "That no housing unit constructed under the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as amended, shall be occupied by a, person who is a member of any organization designated as subversive by the Attorney-General. The Gwinn Amendment, apart from its supporting oath, is subject to attack both as a bill of attainder and on other constitutional grounds.
