Feb. 13, 1961: Who is this sociologist who warns that pornography “is part of a Communist-inspired effort to break down American character?” Alas, The Times doesn’t identify him -- or her. And details are sketchy about the Los Angeles Know Your America Committee.

Digging through The Times clips for stories that link smut to communism is an interesting excursion into controversies over teaching sex education in schools, the Stanford students who abandoned the Young Americans for Freedom to become libertarians and other sagas. The only account I could find directly linking (or rather saying there was no link) between pornography and communism is a speech by then-Atty. Gen. Stanley Mosk (d. 2001), later chief justice of the California Supreme Court.
