More Than Just Ourselves: Willard Uphaus, Louis Wyman, and Civil Liberties in the McCarthy Era

See all news

What are the ethical responsibilities when one’s conscience conflicts with political/legal directives? With a grant from New Hampshire Humanities, the NH World Fellowship Center will present panel discussions on the McCarthy-era legal case that took a conflict between the NH attorney general and the director of a White Mountains conference center all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The case Uphaus v. Wyman will be explored from a variety of angles, considering the historical context, backgrounds of those involved, and the ethical and legal issues at stake. Questions about the balance between individual rights, liberties and conscience and the needs of the broader society remain with us today.
