    In this pamphlet from October 7, 1948, Raymond B. Allen addresses friends of the University of Washington regarding his position on the issues surrounding the Canwell Committee's investigation of the University. He addresses the issues of academic freedom and Communism, and the conflicts between the two. He writes, "Freedom is essential to sound education. That academic freedom must be maintained in any university worthy of the name is beyond question. But academic freedom consists of something more than merely an absence of restraints placed upon the teacher by the institution that employs him. It demands as well an absence of restraints placed upon him by his political affiliations, by dogmas that may stand in the way of a free search for truth, or by rigid adherence to a 'party line that sacrifices dignity, honor, and integrity to the accomplishment of political ends.". less
