McCarthy-era U.S. Representative sends letter to supporter, signs name in blue ink
Typed letter signed: "M.E. Tydings" in blue ink. 1 page, 8x10½. Written on U.S. Senate Committee on Territories and Insular Affairs letterhead. April 26, 1943. Washington, D.C. In full: "Dear Mr. Wilson: I received your letter of the 18th, which I have noted. I agree with you thoroughly. I have expressed myself and I will do all in my power to give the truth to the American people. I trust that everything goes well with you and if there are any other Maryland boys in you camp, please remember me to them. With best wishes and kind regards, I am Sincerely yours". Millard Evelyn Tydings (1890-1961), a Maryland state legislator and veteran of World War I, was speaker of the Maryland House (1920-1922) and a Democratic US Representative (1923-1927) and Senator (1927-1951). In 1950 Tydings chaired a subcommittee investigating Senator Joseph McCarthy's claims of communist spies in the State Department. The committee report was sharply critical of McCarthy, whose supporters ran attack ads against Tydings during the 1950 election, implying that the Maryland Senator was himself sympathetic to communism. Tydings lost his seat. His son, Joseph Tydings, was a US Senator for one term (1965-1971).
