Abstract:

Corresondence, statements, faculty, committee reports, clippings, photostatic material, testimony transcripts, resolutions, and printed materials (bulk 1952-1953) regarding the cases of University professors Heimlich, Finley, and Glasser from the records of the Office of the President (Lewis Webster Jones). Correpsondents include Harvard Law School Professors Zechariah Chaffee, Jr. and Arthur E. Sutherland, who wrote the letter to the Harvard Crimson arguing against the use of the Fifth Amendment before Congressional Committees, Henry R. Brandis, Jr., Chairman of the 1956 Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), whose corrrespondence includes an enclosure of the Committee's review of the Glasser case, Ralph E. Himstead, General Secretary of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), Alfred E. Driscoll, the Governor of New Jersey, who strongly favored dismissal, and Provost Mason W. Gross, regarding locating a position for Finley at another university. Also included are confidential documents of University Dean Herbert P. Woodward regarding accusations against Finley before Congress by former Communists William Martin Canning and Karl August Wittfogel, and documentation on the dismissal of alleged Communist Myron L. Hoch, part-time Professor of Economics at Rutgers. Committees created by Jones to review the cases and advise further action include the Trustee-Faculty-Alumni Committee of Review, chaired by Trustee Tracy S. Voorhees.

The Faculty Committee of Review of the Law School to advise on the Glasser case, chaired by Law Professor Arthur R. Lewis. Includes material relating to the personal and professional histories of the professors, reports of the academic Committees of Review, documentation on the University's censure by the AAUP and AALS, correspondence and editorials regarding the public's and the media's views on the cases. Also included are various statments of President Jones, including his statement Academic Freedom and Civic Responsibility, which was widely requested by universities and colleges throughout the country, as it established a precedent in handling Fifth Amdnement cases.
