TMR 094 : Norman Dodd : On the Tax-Exempt Foundations

NormanDoddIn a change of programming (due to personal illness) we take the opportunity to share the second of two classic interviews which Dr. Stanley Monteith discussed in our final interview with him as having been particularly significant in helping to form his distinctive way of looking at the world.

Complementing Dr. Stan's 1980 interview with Antony C. Sutton, we here present his conversation with Norman Dodd, Director of Research for the Reece Committee, which was tasked by the US Congress in the early 1950s with investigating the use of tax-exempt funds by organisations such as the Rockefeller, Carnegie and Ford Foundations.

According to Norman Dodd, the essence of the Reece Committee's findings is encapsulated in an intriguing conversation Dodd himself had with H. Rowan Gaither, then president of the Ford Foundation, in which he remarkably declared: "we shall use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
