The Cast

"George Crosley"

According to Alger Hiss, "George Crosley" was the pseudonym Whittaker Chambers used when they met. Chambers told HUAC he had never used the name, but at the trials in 1949, Chambers conceded he might have done so. For more information about two people who backed Hiss's recollections on the issue, see the entries for Samuel Roth and Cleide Catlett.

According to Chambers, Hiss knew him as "Carl" (no last name), one of the many pseudonyms Chambers acknowledged using. Other known Chambers' aliases included: Charles Adams, Bob, David Breen, Lloyd Cantwell, David Chambers, Arthur Dwyer, Hugh Jones, John Kelly, Harold Phillips and Charles Whittaker.
