Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[to Senator Joseph McCarthy, during the Army-McCarthy hearings] Fred Fisher is a young man who is starting what looks to be a brilliant career with us. Little did I dream that you could be so reckless, and so cruel, as to do an injury to that lad. Have you no sense of decency, sir; at long last, have you left no sense of decency?.

Trivia:

The attorney who represented the Army during the Army-McCarthy hearings. In those hearings, right-wing Sen. Joseph McCarthy (II) attacked Fred Fisher, who was a member of Welch's law firm. The attack provoked Welch's famous response: " . . . Senator. You've done enough . . . Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?". See more »
