Series III. Research Notes 1914-2004

Scope and Content Notes:

Hoerr collected various other articles and materials referring to Harry Davenport, Tom Quinn and Father Rice. These research notes refer mainly to the Red Scare/Cold War period. A large portion of Hoerr’s research notes reflect the transcriptions of the House Un-American Activity Committee hearings in reference to the three main people involved. His research notes touch on other hearings which were also connected to the Communist man hunt, including motives against the UE. In addition, Hoerr documents Tom Quinn’s legal proceedings from his own Communist trial. Hoerr’s research notes demonstrate the strength the government developed behind the House Un-American Activity Committee. This series is arranged chronologically.
