Before assuming these duties, Adams served as representative to the American Pulpwood Industry in New York (1946-1948). Also a Representative to the 79th Congress, Adams would go on to be Assistant to Eisenhower (1953-1958). Congressman Walter served in World War II and as a Representative from Pennsylvania in the seventy-third and fifteen succeeding Congresses, serving from 1933 until his death May 31, 1963. Walter also acted as chairman of the Committee on Un-American Activities.
