The Legislative Investigation Committee probed unpopular groups in Florida during the 1950's and 60's. Also known as the Johns Committee, investigators questioned civil rights activists, suspected Communists and homosexuals. This committee conducted investigations for nine years, with the University of Florida as one of its principal targets, although colleges and schools all over the state were investigated. A number of teachers and students, homosexual or alleged, were fired from their jobs or forced to leave school. Includes live interviews with Art Copleston, Merril Mushroom, and Julia Penelope; and a narrative about Sigmund Diettrich (who is now deceased) by former colleagues
