On August 3, 1948, Time magazine editor Whittaker Chambers testified before the House Un American Activities Committee (HUAC) that he and Alger Hiss, formerly a high level State Department official, had been Communist agents. Hiss denied that he even knew the editor until Chambers supplied a young California congressman and HUAC member-Richard Nixon-with extensive details about Hiss. Chambers also revealed that Hiss had given him classified State Department documents, microfilmed copies of which were hidden in hollowed-out pumpkins on Chambers's Maryland farm. Hiss was tried for perjury (the statute of limitations had expired for treason) and, after one hung jury, was retried and convicted. Hiss maintained his innocence. The case retains a central role in debates about the extent of Communist activity in the U.S. in the 1940s and 1950s.
