--------------------- text of forwarded message ----------------------- >Date: Mon, 22 Nov 1993 07:04 +0000 >From: DB.PRESSBKS@press.uchicago.edu (DB) >Subject: Waldorf Conference/HUAC The Chicago NPR affiliate last night broadcast "The Waldorf Conference", a play originally recorded by Santa Monica station KCRW. "The Waldorf Conference" is a speculative dramatization of the meeting between Hollywood studio heads that took place in 1948 (or 1949?) soon after the Hollywood Ten refused to cooperate with HUAC. In the radio drama the meeting results in agreement among the studios to fire and blacklist those who did not cooperate with HUAC. How speculative is this? Navasky in _Naming Names_ refers to the meeting only in passing (he calls it the "Waldorf Peace Conference") but makes it sound much less sinister. Any recommendation on a good history of HUAC and/or HUAC in Hollywood? Dean Blobaum University of Chicago Press firstname.lastname@example.org
