British Library Archives and Manuscripts Catalogue : Person : Description : ark:/81055/vdc_100000000209.0x00036d

Adler (1914-2001) was a harmonica player who was blacklisted in 1949 for refusing to testify against the "Hollywood Ten." He had appeared in motion pictures during the 1930s and 1940s and with concert orchestras. In 1950 Adler and performer Paul Draper sued Hester McCullough, the wife of a "Time-Life" editor for libel for alleging he was a communist, but the jury was unable to reach a verdict. He moved to England during the 1950s and was able to revive his musical career in the U.S. during the 1960s.
