Table of contents What's This?
Description
Reports, studies, letters, memoranda, dossiers, notes, bulletins, pamphlets, serial issues, clippings, printed ephemera, and audiovisual material relating to communism and subversion in the United States, primarily in the post-World War II period. Includes material generated by the United States Army Counter Intelligence Corps.
Background
The Hoover Institution Archives acquired the John F. Russell collection from Russell in 1985. Little is known of its origin apart from what may be inferred from internal evidence. In the early 1950s, John F. Russell was a lieutenant in the United States Army Counter Intelligence Corps, stationed at Fort Holabird, Maryland, and associated with the Army's Counter Intelligence School there. No information on his later career is available. Much of the material in the collection dates from the 1950s, and a portion of this was clearly generated by the Counter Intelligence Corps, some of it perhaps by Russell. Later typescript and mimeographed material derives from various and unattributed sources.
