(p.22) 2 The Hawaiian Communist League, 1924–1927
The Life and Lies of Paul Crouch

Gregory S. Taylor

University Press of Florida

Chapter 2 focuses on the period during which Crouch became a Communist ideologue, beginning with his time in the U.S. Army and his participation in the Hawaiian Communist League. That participation led to his arrest as well as to the arrest of fellow League member Walter Trumbull. The Workers (Communist) Party of America used their arrests as a propaganda windfall, and the Party's paper, Daily Worker, kept the two in the headlines for years as evidence of the evils of American capitalism. Crouch spent three years in Alcatraz, but when he was released in 1927 he was fully confirmed in his adherence to Communist ideology and set out on a fifteen-year career as member of the Communist Party.
