104-10219-10126: MEMORANDUM: REVISION INFO ON NOEL, HERMANN AND MERTA FIELD, ALSO ON DR. ELSIE FIELD AKA MRS JOSEPH LEO DOOB AND PROFESSOR JOSEPH LEO DOOB OF URBANA, ILLINOIS

11/16/61 memo from Anita Potocki to William Harvey: "This afternoon (REDACTED - the senior case officer of the BEVISION case, with EE) advised by telephone that he actually had questioned BEVISION on his knowledge of (Hermann Field, Merta Field and Elsie Field aka Elsie H. Doob and Joseph Leo Doob) and had determined that the source actually had no knowledge of the case save what source had acquired from the press..." Also see 104-10437-10032: REPORT: COMMUNIST CONTROL TECHNIQUES, p. 73: "(Noel and Hermann Fields) were men of Communist sympathies whose presence in Poland and Hungary were entirely the result of their going to Eastern Europe in order to have a first hand look at the new 'Peoples' Democracies'. In 1954, Hermann Field was released by the Poles with the statement that his arrest had been a mistake. He then went to Switzerland. He described the events of his imprisonment but has never publicly expressed complaints against the Communist state that arrested him. A 'confession' by Noel Field was published at the time of the Rajk trial. After his release from prison, Noel was seen in a sanitarium by a representative of the U.S. Embassy, but he elected to stay in Hungary. The performance of both of these men is typical of that of Communist sympathizers who are arrested by Communist police. They continue to defend the regime and 'understand' their arrests in terms of Communist logic."
