Communists in Hollywood?

Reagan, before he was President

October 21, 1966

Sir:

I would like to set the record straight in one area of your fair and objective article. It makes it appear as if I found the Screen Actors Guild “thoroughly infiltrated by Communists.” This is not so. There undoubtedly were Communists in the guild, but because of our use of a secret ballot, they were never a factor. Indeed, it was the guild that was one of the leaders in the successful fight to keep the film industry from falling under the domination of other unions that were Communist dominated. I am proud of my long association with the guild, and would not want any inadvertent misinterpretation to cast any reflection on its long, and honorable history.

Ronald Reagan, PACIFIC PALISADES, CALIF.
