    In this letter J. F. Jurich writes to Dr. Raymond B. Allen, President of the University of Washington, concerning the dismissal of three professors due to their communist party affiliations. Jurich states “…this organization – went on record by a unanimous vote of the delegates, protesting the dismissal of the three professors, Ralph Gundlach, Joseph Butterworth and Herbert Phillips, from the University of Washington. The dismissals were recognized as a capitulation to the Canwell Committee, and those behind the Canwell Committee…” Jurich continues by saying “We recognize the dismissals as a blow to academic freedom…we vigorously protest the dismissal of the professors as a denial of their rights as American citizens to hold their religious, economic and political views inviolate under the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights.”. less
