Dear Mr. Callahan,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Without knowing the FBI case number, we searched the Nation Archives Catalog and located the series Classification 100 (Domestic Security) Case Files, 1939 - 1984 of the Los Angeles Field Office; Classification 65 (Espionage) Headquarters Case Files, 1934 - 1992; and Classification 98 (Sabotage) Headquarters Case Files, 10/14/1939 - 4/9/1975 in the Records of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (Record Group 65) that may include the case file on August Furst. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the FBI case file number in your email. Please note that not all FBI classifications are considered permanent. Only the permanent files are accessioned into the National Archives.
We also located Headquarters Files from Classification 65 (Espionage), Headquarters Files from Classification 62 (Administrative Inquiry - Miscellaneous Subversive and Nonsubversive), and Headquarters Files from Classification 62 (Administrative Inquiry - Miscellaneous Subversive and Nonsubversive) in Record Group 65 that were released to NARA under the Nazi War Crimes, and Japanese Imperial Government, Disclosure Acts and may include a file pertaining to August Furst. For more information about these records, please contact RDT2.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
