Wayne Morse papers
Wayne Morse lived in the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area. He served as an undercover agent for the FBI during the 1940s-early 1950s, and was a self-described "Americanist," an anti-communist believing in a "pure America...all white, all Christian, all for all." This collection of his papers includes journals kept and compiled by Morse, correspondence, subject files, as well as some photographs documenting Morse's activities.
