The Cast

Edwin H. Fearon

Fearon was a document examiner hired by the defense before the first trial. Fearon's examination led him to believe that Woodstock #230,099, which the defense would put in evidence as the typewriter once belonging to the Hisses, had typed the Baltimore Documents.

Fearon also said, however, that the Baltimore Documents had been typed on a 1928 Woodstock. Woodstock company documents revealed to the defense for its motion for a new trial, indicated that #230,099 could not have been manufactured before July 1929.
