- "The Independent Citizens Committee of the Arts, Science, and Professions was worked out originally in my office in the Daily Worker. It was worked out by the cultural commission of the Daily Worker, of which Lionel Berman, of the cultural section organizer of the (Communist) party, was a member, and he was entrusted not only by that meeting but by the political committee, as the result of these discussions
with the task of forming the Independent Citizens Committee of the Arts, Sciences, and Professions."
