The Cast

Raymond Catlett

Cleide Catlett's younger son was, according to trial observers, a "truculent" defense witness on cross examination, as he grew frustrated with repeated questioning on the typewriter issue. In the end, the Catletts' confused testimony did little to help Hiss.

Raymond, also known as "Mike," was instrumental in helping the defense locate the Woodstock typewriter that it then placed in evidence under the assumption that it had been the typewriter owned by the Hisses and later given to the Catletts.
