Rosenzweig disputes a transfer from Russian state archives to the Library of Congress of microfilmed copies of CPUSA documents that was sent to the Soviet Union for safekeeping during the Red Scare. Rosenzweig suggests that the transfer may violate archival practice since the CPUSA was never consulted. The LC responds that the transfer is legal under Russian law. Rosenzweig is seeking support for an open letter to LC that he has drafted.
