Abstract:

Statements of the University Administration, correspondence, press releases, clippings, editorial analyses, biogrpahical information, and faculty committee reports (bulk 1952-1953) regarding the cases of University professors Heimlich, Finley, and Glasser, who invoked the Fifth Amendment in refusal to testify before Congressional Committees regarding questions about Communist Party affiliations and subsequently were dismissed or resigned. Faculty Committee reports include those of a Special Faculty Committee of Review, which advised on the Heimlich-Finley cases, and the Faculty Committee of Review of the School of Law, to which the Glasser case was referred for review and recommendation for further action. Jones created these committees following the recommendation of the Trustee-Faculty-Alumni Committee of Review, appointed by Jones and chaired by Trustee Tracy S. Voorhees, that the professor's refusal to testify raised a question as to their fitness as teachers. Documentation also includes confidential correspondence from Finley to University Dean Herbert P. Woodward refuting the 1951 claims of former Communists Karl August Wittfogel and.

Sutherland stressing the obligations of a citizen to testify before Congress; a copy of the Congressional Record which records James C. Auchincloss, representative of the Third Congressional District of New Jersey reading before Congress Jones' statement Academic Freedom and Civic Responsibility. Includes biographical and professional information on the professors; materials including newspaper articles, editorials, and correspondence relating to the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) and Association of American Law Schools (AALS) regarding their censure of Rutgers; and correspondence with other colleges and universities, various organizations, and individuals regarding requests for documentation on the cases.
