Clifford Durr at an FCC Hearing

Clifford Durr worked for the Reconstruction Finance Commission and was a member of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) during the 17 years he lived in the Washington, D.C., area. During his last two years with the FCC, he opposed the red-baiting tactics of the FBI and the House Un-American Activities Committee. In 1948, he resigned in protest of the Federal Loyalty Oath Order.
