"It was made apparent to me that Military Intelligence considers practically all members
of the Federation of Atomic Scientists 'potentially subversive,' if not actually so.

is a definite indication of being a Communist or fellow traveller -- 'or both.' It
was also equally obvious that Military Intelligence is of the opinion that pretty
nearly all scientists would bear constant watching."
David B. Tyler. Letter to Linus Pauling. August 18, 1947.
