Henry Collins

Collins was a childhood friend of Alger Hiss's who was also accused by Whittaker Chambers of participating in underground activities.  Chambers said Collins was introduced to Col. Boris Bykov, his boss in the underground. Collins testified before the grand jury investigating espionage, denying Chambers' charges.

Chambers testified before HUAC on August 3, 1948 that he collected Communist Party dues from Collins but would later contradict that testimony.Click here to read Chambers' August 7th testimony, which includes his allegations about Collins.
