These lists of students were sent by the head of the ROTC to Ray P. Chase. Potts recruited students to infiltrate left-wing student organizations and collect names. He then sent them to Chase. Chase requests students addresses and their “nationality,” which was a code word for whether or not they were Jews or children of the foreign born. Chase refers to this information from “Marxist Club.” The report lists “Marxists” and “socialists.”
