The Cast

Robert Stripling

The chief investigator for HUAC on the Hiss case, Stripling interviewed Chambers a number of times in 1948. It was Stripling who, after speaking with Chambers in November 1948, ordered a subpoena be issued for Chambers to turn over any evidence he had to HUAC. As a result, on December 2, Chambers gave committee investigators the film of government documents which would be called the "Pumpkin Papers."
