Archivist's note
Trudy Peterson, former executive director of the OSA knew from discussions with Bill Robinson, who had worked for the Radios for many years, that in the late 1950s and early 1960s there had been a small group who studied East Germany and people who tracked the “International Communist Movement" all over the world. The relationship between these groups is not clear.
