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 (National Archives Identifier: 278761) ; Exhibits from the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg Case File, 03/13/1951 - 03/27/1951; Department of Justice. Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern Judicial District of New York.; Records of U.S. Attorneys, 1821 - 1989; Record Group 118; National Archives.

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."
