    In this letter written by Francis W. Herring, the executive secretary of the Washington Committee for Academic Freedom, to Professor Garland Ethel (among others); the committee states that “the university of Washington in particular, state education generally, and intellectual freedom everywhere is in grave danger.” The letter continues to discuss the Canwell Committee and its intentions, and states that the Committee for Academic Freedom has adopted a resolution against them.
