Description:

In this lesson, students will review the actions of Owen Lattimore in challenging Joseph McCarthy in the 1950's. Accused of being the "top Russian espionage agent in America" at the height of McCarthyism, Lattimore demonstrated his sense of integrity by fighting to clear his reputation and demanding a hearing before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee. He boldly challenged lies that Senator Joseph McCarthy and others told about him.
