- In Yiddish. 9 pages. Very brief 1-2 page redacted summaries of high points of five witnesses' testimony: Rubin Saltzman, Peter Shipka, Louise Thompson Patterson, Dave (David) Greene, and Rockwell Kent [with the heading "Ani Ma'amin of an American"] each starting with its own page numbers. Atop the page with Dave (David) Greene, it reads "far dem Buletin". In fact, at least some of these texts do appear to have been incorporated (with only minor edits) into the Ordn Bulletin of May, 1951. Saltzman's testimony is given over five days from March 26 to March 30th 1951.
- The campaign ensued once the IWO was put on the Attorney General's Subversive Organizations List in November 1947; the list (aka the Red List) was published in March 1948.
The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
