InfoHenry Huff was a charter member of the Communist Party in Washington State and was chairman of the party in the Northwest for 10 years. During the 1930s he helped organize unemployed workers through Unemployed Councils set up by the Communist Party. As executive secretary of the Grays Harbor Communist Party, Huff became embroiled in an ugly red scare involving the Finnish community in Aberdeen. Along with six other leaders of the Communist Party in Washington, Huff was indicted and convicted under the Smith Act in April, 1953. The other defendants in what became known as the "Seattle Seven" were John Daschbach, William Pennock, Paul Bowen, Karly Larsen, Terry Pettus and Barbara Hartle. The case was defended by lawyer John Caughlan and won on appeal. Huff died, aged 92, in 1986.
