Description: For a week in the summer of 1950, Vermont found itself on the front page of national newspapers, as Senator Joseph McCarthy charged that “Reds Infest Bethel, Randolph Center.” Winston has been researching this fascinating story, which features two outspoken newspaper editors, a Tibetan Buddhist dignitary, a local self-described “Red Hunter,” two actual Communists from out of state, and two well-traveled, prolific authors who were summer residents of Bethel—the Far East expert Owen Lattimore, and the Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson.
