Description
Photo of Duncan Lee, China-born Rhodes Scholar and former Lt. Colonel in the O.S.S., appearing before the House Unamerican Activities Committee. He is answering charges made by Elizabeth Bentley, admitting he knew Ms. Bentley but denied that he knew of her connection with the Communist Party. Unlike several of his predecessors on the witness stand, Lee answered the questions put to him but catagorically denied all charges against him. From: Beth Gore.
