McCarran Act Clause Bars Teaching Fellow From Return to U.S.
Technicalities in the McCarran-Walter Immigration Act are preventing a former University teaching fellow, Claudio Guillen, Ph.D. '53, from returning to the United States.
Guillen, now an assistant professor at Princeton, did not receive his reentry permit from the State Department before going to Europe this summer.
According to the McCarran law, he must be the subject of a private act in Congress in order to return. The authorities at Princeton, where he was a member of the Modern Language Department, are trying to get Senator Smith of New Jersey to introduce such a bill.
While he was getting his doctorate here in 1948-53 he was a teaching fellow in History and Literature and in Spanish. He spent his last year in Dunster House, where he was an entry tutor.
