The “Witch Hunt” at USF

Experiencing the Johns Committee Through Primary Resources

Andy Huse created a great online exhibit with primary documents about how the University of South Florida survived the Johns Committee’s investigations. Jim Schnur, Librarian, Special Collections and University Archives, provided some curatorial guidance at a distance since he had worked with many of the primary sources. Jim also did an oral history interview that talks about how our University has been a “fighter and survivor” and has maintained its Accent on Learning despite the Johns Committee investigations and other attacks.
