John Henry Faulk was a protege of Dobie at the University of Texas who became a celebrated radio show host in New York City during the late 40's - early 50's. Faulk's radio career ended in 1957 when he was blacklisted. His subsequent successful lawsuit helped bring an end to the Hollywood blacklist. 'Fear on Trial,' his book about the experience, was made into a movie starring George C. Scott; the main branch of the Austin Public Library is named in his honor.
