Whittaker Chambers first came to public notice in 1928 — including an article in TIME magazine — for his translation of Felix Salten‘s Bambi: A Life in the Woods (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1928). More than a dozen translations followed over the next dozen years. The same period covered his work at the Daily Worker newspaper (1926-1928), the New Masses magazine (1931-1932), the Soviet underground (1932-1938), and the start of his career with TIME magazine (1939-1948).
The first and only book published by Chambers was his best-selling memoir, Witness (New York: Random House, 1952).
Esther Shemitz Chambers and former fellow TIME senior editor Duncan Norton Taylor edited a second book of memoirs, Cold Friday (New York: Random House, 1964).
William F. Buckley, Jr., and Ralph de Toledano published letters they had received as Odyssey of a Friend (New York, Putnam, 1970) and Notes from the Underground (Washington: Regnery, 1997). Terry Teachout published stories and articles in Ghosts on the Roof (Washington: Regnery, 1989).
