A huge story by my friend and colleague John Meroney will appear in LA Times Magazine this Sunday (February 5, 2012). The story is about Ronald Reagan’s years in Hollywood in which he served as the President of the Screen Actors Guild. Then a liberal Democrat, Reagan was forced to confront aggressive and covert communist infiltration of various Hollywood unions. This outstanding piece is thoroughly researched and includes never-before-released information based on John’s exclusive access to a massive archive compiled by Reagan’s Hollywood mentor, Roy Brewer. Please enjoy the story in this Sunday’s magazine, or read it here online: Left in the Past – LA Times Magazine.
