Final Jeopardy Answer

The Final Jeopardy Answer is: House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC)

Final Jeopardy Explanation

The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was an investigative committee of the United States House of Representatives. The HUAC was created in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities by people or organizations suspected of having Communist ties. It was originally intended to be a temporary committee, but became a standing (permanent) committee in 1945.

In the late 1940s and 1950s, the HUAC became known for its investigations into suspected threats of communism within the United States, particularly in the Hollywood film industry. This led to what is known as the Hollywood blacklist, where people were denied employment in the field based on their political beliefs or associations, whether proven or just suspected.

The committee’s influence began to wane in the late 1950s, but it continued to operate and issue subpoenas until 1969. The HUAC was finally abolished in 1975, its functions transferred to the House Judiciary Committee. Despite its formal dissolution, the HUAC left a lasting legacy, having played a key role in the Red Scare that marked the early Cold War years.
