Memorandum

Date: 3/21/79

To: Mr. W.O. Cregar
From: [name deleted]

Subject: RYMUR

PURPOSE:

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.

SYNOPSIS:

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.

RECOMMENDATION:

Refer to CID.
