60.14 (Storey memo to Jackson)
Justice Jackson; General Donovan; Mr. Alderman; Mr. Shea; Comdr. Kaplan; Lt. Col. Kaplan; M. Mounier; Goering
17 September 1945
This memo from Robert G. Storey to Justice Jackson tallies the evidence held by Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. Storey's intention seems to be self-aggrandizement. In comparing the volume of evidence generated by the United States (primarily, one is invited to suppose, through his division) to the relatively small body of evidence accumulated by Britain, France and the USSR, Storey implicitly diminishes the equity of the latter nations in the impending war crimes trials. Moreover, much of their evidence is already in American files; for example, the Soviet's Photostat of "The Green Portfolio of Goering" is trumped by the U.S.'s possession of the original document. Storey's memo is a typewritten carbon copy of good quality on thin, stable paper.
