7 Hoover even grew to suspect there was collusion among American publishers who agreed not to publish anticommunist works, and among book reviewers, who gave negative reviews or worse, ignored, such books (Theoharis, Secret Files, 311). What Hoover seemed to fear most was the ultimate effect art might have on the masses, and he did not know or understand what modern art could lead to. Modern art, so deliberately nonrepresentational, confused early twentieth century viewers and readers. One apocryphal story that made the rounds at this time poked fun of Picasso’s abstractions: “Picasso replied to a lady who wanted her portrait done and asked him for an appointment for a sitting [that] ‘You need only send me a lock of hair and your necklace’” (Hall and Wykes, 118).

As Schutz describes, the climate after the Palmer Raids encouraged brute vigilantism on the part of American citizens. Christine Stansell notes, for example, “soldiers and sailors based in New York led roving mobs looking for radicals to intimidate” (American Moderns, 314). Schools, too, were subjected to raids in the wake of post–World War I antiradical hysteria. The Rand School, for example, a workers’ school founded in 1906 with some 90 students, was investigated for subversive activities, raided for confiscable material, and subjected to a series of police interferences and mob attacks.

The bureau would have noticed the sea shift, as well, and its attention to college campuses and on the reading lists of certain professors would lead eventually to HUAC investigations of college instructors who were scrutinized for what they taught and what they required their students to read. Hoover looked suspiciously at all “molders of public opinion,” domestic or international, and he focused inordinate energy on the writers. In a declassified internal memoranda, for example, he lists as dangerous and subversive “prominent columnists, editors, commentators, authors, et cetera, which could be influencing such slanted views” (Mitgang, 17; Robins, 183).
