Classification 108: Foreign Travel Control

This classification was established in July 1944 as another outgrowth of its World War II intelligence activities. In cooperation with military intelligence, the FBI attempted to interview all persons entering the United States as part of an effort to restrict spies, subversives, and other dangerous persons. Many of the persons interviewed were U.S. citizens repatriated from Germany and Japan during the war. At the time this classification opened, the Bureau assumed all responsibility for the program. After 1945, FBI headquarters filed travel control investigations in Classification 100: Domestic Security. Field offices, however, continued to use this classification for such investigations.
