The Tapes of Paula Adams

In addition to the letters, reports and diary entries that she sent to Jonestown from Georgetown, Paula Adams recorded many of her phone conversations and meetings with with Guyana’s Ambassador to the United States, Laurence “Bonny” Mann (“BM”). She later transcribed or took notes of their contents and wrote reports of what she’d learned. While the plurality of the tapes focuses on her personal relationship with the ambassador – and some are taped conversations of him speaking about others in the government – the other people named on the tapes represent a cross-section of Guyana officialdom and Temple leadership.
