Speaking to the Advertising Men’s Post of the American Legion, former heavyweight boxing champion and outspoken anti-communist Gene Tunney singled out President MacCracken as an example of the “misguided persons” who were carrying out the work of communists.  “Dr. MacCracken,” he said, “fits into that niche so beautifully that it is pathetic that he doesn’t understand it….  MacCracken is a stooge when he allows Communists to come up there and use his campus.  As you know, the second World Youth Congress met at Vassar and was allowed from there to sow the seeds of international communism.”     The New York Times
