Furry Goes Before Massachusetts Group To Discuss Activities
Associate professor of Physics Wendell H. Furry has testified again.
Furry appeared before a subcommittee of the Massachusetts Commission Investigating communism last week in a secret session. The subcommittee will make its report to the main Commission some time in the near future.
After attending Furry's hearing with senator McCarthy's one-man investigating committee on Jan. 16, Thomas H. Bresnahan, commission counsel, said that if Furry and Kamin refused to tell the Massachusetts Commission the names of communists known to them and yet did not invoke the fifth amendment, under which witnesses may refuse to testify on the grounds of possible self-incrimination they would be reported to the state legislature for contempt action.
