The aftermath of the SDG meeting saw the introduction of the loyalty oath that had been sought by DeMille. Mankiewicz and the SDG board introduced the measure, and it was ratified by directors. The loyalty oath stayed in place for sixteen years until it was removed by the U.S. Supreme Court. After the meeting, Ford successfully attempted to heal the rift between DeMille and the Guild over the next three years.
