This chapter studies the naming strategy used by John Dos Passos. It looks at Josephine Herbst, one of the people he named when he was visited by the FBI. It takes a look at the Robles affair and Dos Passos' fictionalizing of Herbst as Georgia, one of the characters in The Grand Design. The chapter also takes a look at this novel, which hunts out the actual culprits of the Cold War and singles out the way the alliance with the Soviet Union and the Popular Front supported Communist conspirators in Washington to become key players in the radical cryptologizing of the New Deal administration.

Keywords:   naming strategy, John Dos Passos, Josephine Herbst, Robles affair, The Grand Design, Soviet Union, Popular Front, Communist conspirators, cryptologizing, New Deal administration
