To provide INTD observations regarding FCI interest in documents discovered at Jonestown, Guyana, as requested by attached memorandum of J.O. Ingram to Mr. Moore dated December 21, 1978.


Documents recovered at Jonestown reflect People’s Temple (PT) was openly pro-Soviet and had connections with the Communist Party, USA (CPUSA). High-level CPUSA assets furnished current comments reflecting CPUSA had a fraternal relationship with PT. This is logical since both are pro-Soviet. INTD is interested in reviewing any additional information regarding the Soviet involvement with PT.
