FBI Section 132 EE-4–EE-5
Letters to Jonestown & Censor Examples

EE-4–EE-5, which comprises FBI Section 132, is labelled in the Guyana Index as “Letters to Jonestown & Censor Examples” and consists of 150 pages.

The listing below is complete for this section of the FBI’s FOIA release. The complete PDF for this section as released by the FBI is here.

The 45 documents in this section have been organized into five categories:

Many of the letters from people not associated with the Temple – especially those in the first section – are not relevant to the group’s history and were therefore not transcribed.

There is only one EE-5 document – the notes from Rita Tupper to Jim Jones – with the remainder being designated as EE4.

The citation for these documents should open with the FBI’s official designation of these records, which is “RYMUR 89-4286.” Each individual page in these records has a unique number. Page 128 of this document, for example, is marked “EE-4-AAB”. The complete citation for that page, then, would be “RYMUR 89-4286- EE-4-AAB”.
