Subpoena issued to the College Teachers Union
The Rapp-Coudert Committee was a New York State initiative organized in June 1940 to investigate and identify "subversive activities" and persons in New York's public schools and colleges. Several teachers' unions were targeted in the initial stages of the state's investigation as their membership rolls comprised progressive activists, many with alleged Communist ties. City College, in particular, became a target of the committee with dozens of faculty and staff called to public and private hearings.
