[Lai, Him Mark]

[Transcript of testimony about the Chinese American Youth Club and Hansen J.T. Chang]

, n.p.. [1955], 17p., 8.5x14 inch sheets mimeographed on both sides, horizontal fold crease, otherwise very good. These mimeographed copies appear to have been made by Lai himself; provenance available upon request. Testimony by Lai, who went on to become famous as the "Dean" of Chinese-American studies but was then the head of the Chinese American Youth Club (formerly the Chinese American Democratic Youth League). He responds to questions from an unspecified board of examiners about Hansen Chang, a private in the US Army suspected of being sympathetic to the People's Republic of China, and various details about the day-to-day workings of the Youth Club. There is much discussion of the perceived communistic inclinations of the Club, ardently denied by Lai. It is unclear whether Lai was aware at this time that the group had been infiltrated by the FBI and its political leanings were actually quite clearly known through translations of its Chinese-language newsletters provided to the FBI by interpreters.
