MARY DOUGLAS She sends this typed note for Benjamin Mandel saying that he will be “greatly missed” Typed Note signed: “Mary Douglas”, in blue ink, 5¼x4¼. No place, 1967 November 10. Envelope included, 5¼x4¼. Envelope postmarked Honolulu, Hawaii, November 10, 1967. Addressed to “Mr. John R. Norpel, Jr./ Internal Security Subcommittee/ 3232 New Senate Office Building/ Washington, D.C. 20510”. Benjamin Mandel (1887-1973) was a New York City school teacher and activist. He joined the Communist Party in 1920 as "Bert Miller" and eventually became Organization Secretary for the New York district. Mandel was elected to the organization's Central Committee at its Fifth Congress in 1927, and reelected as a "candidate member" in March 1929. By the later 1930s he had become a dedicated anti-communist, and as "Benjamin Mandel," served as the research director for the Dies Committee from 1939 to 1945. He worked with the New York legislature during the Rapp-Courdert inquiry into the presence of Communist teachers in New York schools. In 1951, he became research director in the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, and stayed in that position until his retirement in 1967. Signer merits further research. Envelope- Lightly toned.
