Britannica note: Red Scare: Despite his strongly anticommunist foreign policy and creation, in 1947, of an elaborate Federal Employee Loyalty Program, resulting in the firings of hundreds of federal workers and forced resignations of several thousand more, Harry S. Truman’s (33rd U.S. President, 1945-1953) final years in office were marred by charges that his administration was lax about, or even condoned, subversion and disloyalty and that communists (disparaged ‘reds’) had infiltrated the government.
