The Kefauver Committee and Organized Crime

`In 1950, freshman U.S. Senator Estes Kefauver took the stage against organized crime, at the head of a special committee. The Kefauver hearings, as they became known, were held in major cities across the country. The ones that were televised live became a sensation, and were how much of the country heard about the mob for the first time. The Kefauver Committee is history that deserves to be remembered.
