Major Potts Spies for Chase and FBI

These lists of students were sent by the head of ROTC to Ray P. Chase. Potts’ recruited students to infiltrate left-wing student organizations and collect names for Potts, who sent them to Chase.  Chase requests their addresses, and their “nationality,” which was a code word for whether or not they were Jews.
