Charles Van Doren’s Statement – Full Text

Nov. 3, 1959, Van Doren Statement  

Nov. 3, 1959: "I would give almost anything I have to reverse the course of my life in the last three years. I cannot take back one word or action; the past does not change for anyone. But at least I can learn from the past. I have learned a lot in those three years -- especially in the last three weeks, I've learned a lot about my life. I've learned a lot about myself, and about the responsibilities any man has to his fellow men. I've learned a lot about good and evil. They are not always what they appear to be."

Orson Welles, in yesterday's story, was too much the gentleman to mention Charles Van Doren's name or take the bait from show's corrupt producers.
