A photograph of the faces of the public listening to testimony during a House Committee on Un-American Activities hearing, 30 March 1953.

The deep interest of the public in the current “Red” probe is seen in this picture showing some of the spectators as they listened intensely to the testimony of witnesses. The boy in the center even writes notes as he listens. The room on the fifth floor of the federal building, where the House Committee on Un-American Activities is conducting the hearing, was jammed with spectators almost every day.
