Vincent played an important role in hastening Mao Zedong's conquest of China.

John Carter Vincent worked for the U.S. State Department as a China hand during World War II and the Chinese Civil War.
Vincent was one of Sen. Joseph McCarthy's numbered cases given to the Tydings Committee. During his tenure as chief of the Division of Chinese Affairs, Vincent played an important role in hastening Mao Zedong's conquest of China.

Budenztestified in the summer of 1951 that Vincent was a member of the Communist Party. In December 1952, the Civil Service Loyalty Review Board found reasonable doubt regarding Vincent's loyalty. In 1953, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles requested Vincent's resignation. Vincent is McCarthy's Case #2 and Lee list #52.[1]
