Communist Newspaper

The U.S. military was concerned with the perceived threat of communism well before the official start of the Cold War. In this War Department memo during World War II, an Army intelligence officer discusses a Seattle newspaper with communist ties in the United States. The officer indicates a "discreet investigation" is underway to determine contacts and sources of the paper.
