JOHN M. FISHER
As President of the American Security Council (1968), he signs a typed letter, congratulating Ben Mendel on his retirement from the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee.
Typed Letter signed: "John M. Fisher", 8½x11. Washington, D.C., 1968 January 10. On letterhead of the American Security Council to Ben Mendel, Washington, D.C. In full: "Somewhat belatedly I'd like to add my very best wishes to those of your many, many friends on your retirement from the staff of the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee. We here at the American Security Council have had many occasions to recognize your devotion to your work for the Subcommittee for we too have benefited from it. Your continuing interest in our work and constructive ideas and suggestions have been most appreciated over the years. No one is going to 'fill Ben's shoes' on the Subcommittee because that just can't be done but, at the same time, I know of no one who has better earned the right to relax and enjoy himself after nearly a lifetime of devoted service. Kindest personal regards and best wishes, Sincerely". John M. Fisher, a bomber pilot in World War II and then an FBI Special Agent, was instrumental in founding the American Security Council, serving as its President from 1955 to 2002. The American Security Council lobbied the US government for military preparedness and awareness of the dangers of communism. It maintained a list of over one million US citizens it regarded as "subversive," boasting that unlike the FBI, it was free to share its information with private corporations. The ASC established a Congressional conference center and encouraged the establishment of "security studies" programs at American universities. Fisher was instrumental in formation of the Congressional National Security Caucus in 1978. Congressional staffer Ben Mandel was an investigator for the House Un-American Activities Committee, dating from World War II, and then with the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee. Toned and soiled around edges. Three file holes on left margin. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise good condition.
