Louis F. Budenz was a Communist Party USA leader and activist.

On August 2, 1948, Budenz testified before the Senate subcommittee of the Committee on Expenditures in the Executive Department as follows:

"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."[1]
