Photo measures 8 x 11. J.B. Matthews, Dies Committee Investigator, reports to his office from the morgue in Washington D.C., that he is sure that the body of a man found murdered in a Washington Hotel is that of former Russian Secret Police Chief General Walter G. Krivitsky. Joseph Brown "Doc" Matthews, Sr. (1894 - 1966), best known as J.B. Matthews, was an American linguist,and a educator, writer, and political activist. A committed pacifist, Matthews became a self-described "fellow traveler" of the Communist Party, USA through the middle-1930s, achieving national prominence as a leader of a number of the party's so-called "mass organizations." A disillusionment with communism followed towards the end of the 1930s. (wikipedia)
