Report on the Congress of American Women

Washington, D.C. Committee on Un-American Activities, U.S. House of Representatives, 1949. First Edition. An investigation into the Congress of American Women by the House Committee on Un-American Activities. The committee maintained that the CAW was a Communist front organization; its report attacked various members and attempted to tie them to Moscow. There's an especially lurid chapter on Muriel Draper, president of the CAW: "...when Muriel Draper had nearly achieved the pinnacle of her consuming desire for importance, fame, even adulation, her husband entered their London residence at teatime to confess that he had lost their last cent on a horse race. From that time on her faith in capitalism suffered a heavy decline." (page 68). Numerous black-and-white illustrations. 8vo (9 inches / 23 cm) iv, 114 pages in stapled wrappers. Near Fine, with some creasing to front and rear covers. SCARCE. Item #1205
