was married to a housekeeper in a building in
Baltimore where Whittaker Chambers once lived.
Chambers claimed to have hired Edith
Murray as a maid when he lived in the
building (she testified she had seen Chambers
and Hiss together). In an affidavit filed for
Hiss's motion for a new trial, Fowler said he
had visited the building frequently and recognized
the Chambers family. He said they didn't have
a maid at that time. Fowler's ex-wife filed
an affidavit for the government, saying that
she and Fowler had not been frequent visitors
to the building.
