Socialists/Communists in the White House
David Axelrod - studied political science at the University of Chicago in the early 1970s. Later, while a start-out journalist with the Hyde-Park Herald, Axelrod was mentored by two older journalists cum political activists, Don Rose and David S Canter. From 1966 until 1975 Don Rose and his partner David S Canter co-owned a small newspaper called the Hyde Park Kenwood Voices. The paper's radical tone suited the neighbourhood. It tended to follow the Communist Party line-campaigning for example to abolish the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Don Rose and David Canter took the young David Axelrod under their wing. Axelrod was a regular visitor to the Canter household and the radical duo took it upon themselves to "mentor" and "educate...politically", a the young journalist. At the time Rose was active in a Communist Party front, the Alliance to End Repression. The Alliance was set up to abolish the Chicago "Red Squad", the police unit charged with monitoring communist and radical organisations. At one point Canter, an importer of Soviet literature was required to register as an agent of the Soviet Union. Rose's personal Red Squad file accused him of being a "member of the anarchists".
