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?.


Great-grandfather of Amy Landecker. See more »
