"Whittaker Chambers was born Jay Vivian Chambers and also known as David Whittaker Chambers (April 1, 1901 July 9, 1961), was an American writer and editor. After being a Communist Party USA member and Soviet spy, he later renounced communism and became an outspoken opponent later testifying in the perjury and espionage trial of Alger Hiss. Both are described in his book published in 1952 entitled Witness."

I just read Witness this summer. Our library system got me a copy, which was 60 years old.
It was 800 pages long, and it was fascinating.
It also shows the Commies have been at this a very long time.
Whittaker Chambers paid a trememndous price for being a winess, but he paid it, knowing how valuable freedom was.
