"One of McCarthy's first investigations concerned the Voice of America (VOA) and why one of its transmitters had been placed in such a way as to minimize its effectiveness in reaching the enslaved people behind the Iron Curtain. An employee with the VOA — Raymond Kaplan — died when hit by a truck the day before he was set to testify in the probe." Wes Vernon, Renew America, 15 November 2007. Transcriptions of the hearings are available in Volume 1 at the U.S. Senate Art & History web page.
