Senator Joseph McCarthy?

Larry Tye's picture

I am launching a biography of McCarthy, for Houghton-Mifflin, and would love help with these searches:

1) Trying to find surviving friends and relatives, colleagues, first-hand fans and foes. I'm in touch with some, most in their 90s or beyond, and suspect there are lots of others;

2) Trying to find anyone from the old Soviet world who can help me understand, up-close, what his adversaries thought of the senator from Grand Chute;

3) Anyone else (you perhaps) I should be talking to as I get ready for my trips to Wisconsin, DC, and elsewhere?

Thanks for considering,

Larry (
