Subseries 7. Memoranda

Scope and Content Notes:

Folders here are arranged chronologically, each of which contains several months of memoranda from June 1969 through July 1975. The first section is a miscellaneous group of memoranda from various persons at DOJ, several related to the USA Advisory Committee, and three from Scarlata, a Thornburgh staff attorney. All the remaining and numerous memoranda are an intriguing array sent by Thornburgh to staff members or "to file" and cover a wide range of topics, especially including cases. Since actual case files ultimately were kept by the Office, these memoranda serve as the only internal reference to these notable cases. The memoranda were used generally by Thornburgh to communicate updates and information on criminal activities, criminal cases, investigations, allegations, and procedures to staff and colleagues.
