Letter from U.S. Attorney to Mrs. James E. Tucker

Letter from unnamed Assistant US Attorney to a Mrs. James E. Tucker, thanking her for information on the “Americanism of the President of the University” in Berkeley. This likely refers to Benjamin Ide Wheeler, considered a German sympathizer and forced to retire as president of US Berkeley in 1918. Thus, the letter is associated with the 1917 Hindu-German Conspiracy Trial, during which Ghadar Party activists were charged with attempting to foment a rebellion in India.
