Fighting in Paradise

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter discusses events following the arrival of the House Un-American Activities Committee in Honolulu in April 1950. The tumultuous hearings they held concerned explicitly “Communist Activities in the Territory of Hawaii,” which meant an intense focus on the International Longshore and Warehousemen's Union (ILWU), which only recently had exhibited its strength. The HUAC's arrival indicated that a turning point had been reached in the ascendancy of the ILWU and the Community Party: powerful forces had determined that both organizations wielded entirely too much influence and therefore should be whittled down to a more manageable size.

Keywords:   hearings, International Longshore and Warehousemen's Union, Community Party, House Un-American Activities Committee, Communists
