Document for June 3rd:
U.S. vs. Julius & Ethel Rosenberg and Martin Sobell, Government Exhibit 16, Registration forms from the Hilton Hotel, Albuquerque, New Mexico for Harry Gold, 06/03/1945
Dated June 3, 1945, this hotel registration card was used as evidence during the trial of U.S. vs. Julius & Ethel Rosenberg and Martin Sobell. The prosecution introduced this photostat of an Albuquerque Hilton registration card to substantiate Harry Gold's testimony that he had met with David Greenglass in June 1945. Soviet agent Anatoli Yakovlev had sent Gold to New Mexico to obtain more information from Klaus Fuchs about the lens which would trigger the atom bomb. On his way back from Sante Fe, Gold allegedly visited Greenglass in Albuquerque, identifying himself with the recognition symbol "I come from Julius."
