Letters Seen Refuting Hamilton on Link to Anti-semites

Download PDF for this date

The House Committee on un-American Activities was reported today to have correspondence in its possession indicating that John D.M. Hamilton, chairman of the Republican National Committee knew more about anti-Semitic activities than he has admitted.

These letters were said to show that Mr. Hamilton conferred several times with Reserve Captain James E. Campbell, who is active in spreading anti-Semitic propaganda from Owensboro, Ky., and supplied him with a list of national committeemen. (Mr. Hamilton admits his office furnished the list, in a routine reply to a letter, but denies any other connection with Captain Campbell.)
