The Cast

J. Kellogg-Smith

Kellogg-Smith was the owner of a summer camp in Chestertown, Maryland, where Timothy Hobson spent the summer of 1937. Chambers had claimed he and the Hisses had taken a trip to Peterborough, New Hampshire, that August, but Hiss said he had spent that summer with Hobson. At the first trial, Kellogg-Smith testified for the defense that this was true. At the second trial, his testimony was buttressed by his wife Margaret who also recalled seeing the Hisses at the camp when they were said by Chambers to have been in Peterborough.
