Carol Harris Foster papers

Identifier: MS-1441

  • Staff Only


Collection of Carol H. Foster documents her time as an anti-communist informant for the FBI in New Hampshire. Foster spent over a decade undercover in the Communist Party and gave testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in 1958. The collection includes newspapers documenting her 1958 testimony and its aftermath. Her scrapbook contains clippings from these newspapers and other documents relating to the HUAC hearing. Foster also kept Communist and left-wing publications from her time in the party. Many items have handwritten annotations by Foster, and some are inscribed to her, including the 1955 Subversive Activities in New Hampshire report by then-Attorney General Louis Wyman, and two anti-Communist pamphlets by Fred Schwarz. Also of note are two original photographs taken by Foster, one of a protester holding a sign in support of Dr. Willard Uphaus (see MS-1077 for Dr. Uphaus’ papers).
