The Cast

Lucy Elliott Davis

Elliott was the proprietor of Bleak House in Peterborough, New Hampshire, where Whittaker Chambers said he had stayed with the Hisses in August 1937. Davis testified that she always had guests sign the register, which was produced at trial. Neither the Hisses or Chambers were listed in the register, and there was also no combination of two men and a woman during that period. Only three people had registered prior to that weekend, and Mrs. Davis was able to recall them accurately.
