Walter Schneir, whose fascination with the Rosenberg espionage case began with a hotly debated 1965 book arguing that the couple had been framed, and ended with his grim acceptance that Julius, if not Ethel, Rosenberg was indeed a Soviet spy, died April 11 at his home in Pleasantville, N.Y. He was 81.
The Rosenbergs appeared in the opening moments of "Citizen Cohn" as they were found guilty of espionage and sentenced to die for giving away America's nuclear secrets. AS SEEN IN:
