Chase on U of M “Existing Situation”

This 1937 Chase Institute flyer is directed to the University of Minnesota Board of Regents to offer information about the infiltration of the University by “Russian-directed” Communists. His constant appeal to “facts” belies an ideologically driven misreading of campus activism. He clearly opposed any open debate and discussion of ideas. There is no evidence that his “offer” of information was accepted by the regents.
