Dear Mr. Sucato,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Central Administrative Correspondence, 1930 - 1948; Administrative Correspondence and Operational Files, 1941 - 1958; and Classified Administrative Correspondence, ca. 1921 - 1947 in the Records of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (Record Group 38) that may have records related to this topic. These records are arranged according to the Navy Filing manuals. Some of the file filing designations that may include relevant material include A8-5 (espionage), ND3 (3rd Naval District - New York), and EF30 (Germany). These records are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2). For more information, please email RDT2 at Archives2reference@nara.gov.
We also located 6 series in the Records of Naval Districts and Shore Establishments (Record Group 181) that include records of the Third Naval District Port Director. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at New York (RE-NY) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 and RE-NY. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
In addition, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service Association may have other resources for you to search.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
