Alvin Edward O’Konski was a representative from the state of Wisconsin from 1942 until 1972, and during his time in Congress he was known for his strong anti-communist stance. This paper will cover the work that O’Konski was a part of during the years 1944 until 1956. O’Konski was a key player in the fight against communism, due to his strong ties to a lot of European countries, and to Poland, as he had a strong Polish heritage. O’Konski was a defender of democracy in America and beyond, and when one examines his work through bills and resolutions, as well as speeches he made to the American public, the importance of O’Konski’s role becomes apparent.
