contradicted Lee Pressman's
1950 claim that Alger Hiss had not been a member
of the Ware study group. Weyl asserted he himself
had been a member, and so had Hiss.
Weyl told the Senate Internal Security Committee,
in February 1952, about having belonged to the
Ware group, no one else, including either Whittaker
Chambers or Weyl's own accounts, had linked
Weyl to Ware.
his book, "Treason," published in
1950, Weyl did not comment on the matter. When
he testified before HUAC in 1943 he denied having
been a member of the Communist Party.
