In March 1953 a Committee of Five was appointed by the standing committee of the University Senate (acting at the request of the administration) to investigate the charge that four members of the faculty, Paul Zilsel, Robert Glass, Harold Lewis, and Emanuel Margolis, were communists. Committee members included Fred A. Cazel, Jr., Harold G. Halcrow, C. Albert Kind, Arthur L. Wood, and Marcel Kessel as Chairman. In a unanimous report, the committee recommended to the Board of Trustees that all four faculty members be retained at the University of Connecticut.
These records primarily contain minutes of the Committee's meetings and the final report.
