This is quite interesting, an interview with Norman Dodd of the Reece
Committee, by G. Edward Griffin , an investigation of Tax Exempt
Foundations and their Un-American Activities. If you read this
interview you will understand that you cannot trust anything you
read, or were taught in school.

An excerpt is posted below:


At that time, their interest shifts over to preventing what they call
a reversion of life in the United States to what it was prior to
1914, when World War I broke out. At that point, they come to the
conclusion that, to prevent a reversion, we must control education in
the United States. And they realize that is a pretty big task. To
them it is too big for them alone.

So they approach the Rockefeller Foundation with a suggestion: that
portion of education which could be considered domestic should be
handled by the Rockefeller Foundation, and that portion which is
international should be handled by the Endowment.

They then decide that the key to the success of these two operations
lay in the alteration of the teaching of American History. So, they
approach four of the then most prominent teachers of American History
in the country -- people like Charles and Mary Byrd. Their
suggestion to them is this, "Will they alter the manner in which they
present their subject"" And, they get turned down, flatly.

So, they then decide that it is necessary for them to do as they say,
i.e. "build our own stable of historians." Then, they approach the
Guggenheim Foundation, which specializes in fellowships, and
say" "When we find young men in the process of studying for
doctorates in the field of American History, and we feel that they
are the right caliber, will you grant them fellowships on our say
so? And the answer is, "Yes."

So, under that condition, eventually they assemble twenty (20), and
they take these twenty potential teachers of American History to
London. There, they are briefed in what is expected of them -- when,
as, and if they secure appointments in keeping with the doctorates
they will have earned.

That group of twenty historians ultimately becomes the nucleus of the
American Historical Association. And then, toward the end of the
1920's, the Endowment grants to the American Historical Association
four hundred thousand dollars ($400,000) for a study of our history
in a manner which points to what this country look forward to, in the
future.

That culminates in a seven-volume study, the last volume of which is,
of course, in essence, a summary of the contents of the other six.
The essence of the last volume is this: the future of this country
belongs to collectivism, administered with characteristic American
efficiency.

That is the story that ultimately grew out of, and of course, was
what could have been presented by the members of, this Congressional
Committee, and the Congress as a whole, for just exactly what it
said. But, they never got to that point!

Griffin: This is the story that emerged from the minutes at the
Carnegie Foundation?
