Alice McGrath in VC Reporter

The VC Reporter, the alternative weekly for Ventura County, has a cover story on Alice McGrath this week. Alice was the executive secretary for the Sleepy Lagoon Defense Committee, which McWilliams chaired in the early 1940s. It helped free a group of mostly Latino youths in Los Angeles after a biased murder trial.

A picture of Alice and McWilliams (taken while he was teaching at UCLA) is on the cover; the link above is to the story.
