Daniel Schorr

Daniel Schorr (1916-2010) was a journalist who worked for CBS, CNN, and most recently, National Public Radio. He was known for his work as a foreign correspondent in the Soviet Union. This release consists of material from two files covering a "Foreign Agents Registration Act" investigation initiated during World War II, when Schorr took a job as a foreign correspondent for a Dutch news service, as well as a special inquiry investigation of Schorr requested by the Nixon administration. The special inquiry investigation ended as soon as the Bureau realized that it had been requested for political reasons.
