61.03 (Donovan memo to Storey, 25 October 1945)
Hess; Justice Jackson
This memo addresses Hess's claim of being amnesiac and suggests asking the Court to appoint a commission to investigate Hess's mental health and, in effect, to determine whether he is capable of assisting in his own defense. This document is a typewritten carbon copy of excellent quality on thin, browning paper.
