FBI Section 88 G-1 Communist Contacts, USSR

FBI Section 88 was divided into two sections with the “G” designation and both labelled in the Guyana Index as “Communist Contacts.” This, the first of the two sections, is further designated “USSR” and consists of 241 pages.

The complete PDF for this section as released by the FBI is here. Most of the pages from this section comprise notes of meetings between Temple members and officials of the Soviet Embassy, which have been organized into a separate page. The remaining documents of this section appear below.

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 82 of this document, for example, is marked “G-1-c-1”. The complete citation for that page, then, would be “RYMUR 89-4286-G-1-c-1”.

Documents from the second section, G-2, on “Communist contacts, Korea, Cuba,” is here. It should also be noted that the FBI release includes additional documents concerning the Temple’s relationship with the Soviet Union and other Communist countries, at Section 139 GG-1 – GG-3.
