Title:
Intellectual Freedom: A Proposed Statement of Principle
Description:
Draft of a statement written by Luria for the University of Illinois Committee on Intellectual Freedom, an informal faculty group concerned about the impact of McCarthyism on academic policies.. NOTE: Page two contains handwritten text in pencil that was too light to adequately capture in black and white. Text at the top of page two reads: "only in this way can they come to appreciate the true dangers of communism and other forms of totalitarianism." Text at the bottom of page two reads: "It is this freedom that differentiates the process of a free society from totalitarian control of thought."
