"Adena" sent me the Youtube citaton for this extended interview with the late Owen Lattimore. Lattimore was famously accused by Joseph McCarthy of being a Soviet Agant. He was one of the "China Hands" who supposedly lost China. It seems to have been found recently.
I have no idea if he was a Soviet espionage agent or if he was named in some way in the Venona decrypts.
A number of our family members were in China in the 20s and 30s. I wonder if they ever met Lattimore.
As an observer of China and Mongolia he was clearly an interesting man. pl
