Abstract (Document Summary)

G. David Schine--focus of the epic congressional hearings in the 1950s that led to the downfall of Sen. Joseph McCarthy--Schine's wife and their son were killed Wednesday when their single-engine plane crashed moments after takeoff from Burbank airport, police said.

The elder Schine and the late New York attorney Roy M. Cohn were young investigators for McCarthy in the probe of alleged communist infiltration of the government during the 1950s. Schine was drafted into the Army in 1953 after attempts to obtain a commission for him failed.

A series of events led to the famed Army-McCarthy hearings in mid-1954, during which Schine became the nation's best known Army private. Charges were leveled on national television that McCarthy's committee had exerted undue influence to get special favors for Schine in the Army.
