Subject: RE: Zora Neale Hurston
I haven't seen the letters, but it seems to me that that kind of 'paranoia' was far more widespread than many now would suppose. I think many people now have the impression that other than for a handful of rabid anti-Communists in the Joe McCarthy vein, everyone was cool, when in fact the fear of Communist spies and operatives infected much of North America, if not of the West generally.
