Wikipedia, Nov. 30, 2021 (Whittaker Chambers (born Jay Vivian Chambers; April 1, 1901-July 9, 1961) was an American writer-editor, who, after early years as a Communist Party member (1925) and Soviet spy (1932-1938), defected from the Soviet underground (1938), worked for Time magazine (1939-1948), and then testified about the Ware group in what became the Hiss case for perjury (1949-1950), often referred to as the trial of the century, all described in his 1952 memoir Witness. In 1928, Chambers translated Bambi, a Life in the Woods, by Felix Salten, into English.)
