Res. .>ol Mr. Kcclc. Air. Bogolepov, will vein state your name for the record and the spelling of it. please, for the reporter. 1/r. Bogolepov. AIv lirsi name is Igor. I-■_'-!>-r. einel my lei-t name is Bogolepov. B-o-g-o-l-e-p-o-v. 1/r. Keele. How long have you been in this country. Air. Bogolepov? Mr. Bogolepov. Since hist April. 1/r. Keele. Wlie-re' were' you horn? 1/r. Bogolepov. I was born in Siberia in 1901. ' 1/r. keele. Did you ever hold any office under the Soviel government or with the Soviel government? Mr. Bogolepov. Yes, I did. 1/r. Keele. What was the office or of- fices, and during wheel period of time? 1/r. Bogolepov. Well, after graduating from Ihe University of Petrograd in 1925>. I served the Soviet Foreign Office, in the1 Soviel Foreign Office, and I was uith this organization, with some inler- ruption for lln- Red army missions inside and outside, until 1911 . . . Mr. Keele. Whal was your work in the S..\ iel Foreign Office? 1/r. Bogolepov. In the Foreign Office I was mostly concerned with legal matters, international law, League of Nations, disarmament, security, and the last position before my transfer to the- Baltic was the counselor of the Foreign Office. We- have had two counselors, one for political affairs, and the second for legal affairs. I was for foreign affairs. 1/r. Keek. Will you just tell us a bil more aboul that. As a counselor, whal were vour duties, emd whal rank did theit place you within the Foreign Of- ti'i'. eunl who were your superiors at tluit time? FIFTH RANKING IN FOREIGN OFFICE Mr. Bogolepov. We-ll. my superior was the Foreign Minister. I was directly under him. and if you leikc ei- ei foreign minister or commissar, as he was called al that time, he has deputies. which were four in all. I held the fifth position in the Foreign Office. Mr. Keele. Wllee was till' (le illlllli-sar for the Foreign Affairs at tbat time? 1/r. Bogolepov. 1 wnrke-el firsl uneler Litvinov, then under Molotov for a while. 1/r. Keele. Under Litvinov and under Molotov? Mr. Bogolepov. That is right. 1/r. Keele. When did you first become aware, Mr. Bogolepov, of the American foundations, such as the Rockefeller and Carnegie groups? When did you firsl learn of them or hear of them? 1/r. Bogolepov. I can't give you a precise date, of course. It was approximately in the end of 1920 when, in the library of our Foreign Office, I gol the publications eef Carnegie Endowment for International Peace relating to the investigation of the origin of World War I . . . only later in approximately 1935, 19%. I became informed about the existence of these foundations ev officio. Starting with this time, in correspondence with the Soviel Embassy in Washington, which I read in my capacity as counselor, eiml Vice Deputy Director 'if League of Nations Division of the Foreign Office in Moscow, more than often I saw mentioned die name of Carnegie Endowment, and Rockefeller Foundation, in the' reports, as I said, of our Embassy in Washington . . . SOVIETS GAVE ASSIGNMENTS TO FOUNDATIONS Each Soviel Ambassador abroad is supposed to send the reports, regular reports, to the Foreign Office, eiml monthly reports, quarterly and yearl) reports aboul his actii Ities, emd I rceul about this foundation, these foundations, mostl) in the reporl e.l the Soviel Ambassador in Washington, when he -eii.l what kinel of people he or his officials meet from these foundations in this period of time, what kind of assignments they gave to these people or through other people to these foundations or to these foundations through American Universities or publishing houses, et cetera, et cetera, el cetera. He- gave the names of the people whom his agents met. and unfortunately 1 can't give any names because I didn't pay any attention to his name, and it was such a big amount of names that really I became confused. I just registered in my memory the fact that with every year the number of mentions of these foundations became more and more numerous, and the people involved in this machination of the Soviet Embassy in this country became also greater and greater. 1/r. Keele. Do I understand that you mean lhal in connection with the reports thai Oumansky made, the Soviet Am- bassador to Washington, that he mentioned the name's of people whom he or his officials or agents had contacted, who had some connection with the Rockefeller or the Carnegie Foundations, and thai he reported whal they -eiid with reference to publications or projects nr nther ideas favorable t" the Soviet Union; is thai correct? Mr. Bogolepov. Thai i- right, or I can even specify, in my testimony before the Ah'Carrein committee this spring I lold on ihe questions of Senator Ferguson that the majority of subversive operations in the field of infiltration of ideas, einel which were favorable for the Soviel Union, the money which was paid for such services rendered was nol Soviel money bul American money. UNIVERSITIES INFESTED BY SOVIET SYMPATHIZERS Mr. Keele. I low did llicy manage to get American monev for lhe propagation of ideas favorable to the Soviet Union? Mr. Bogolepov. That is, I guess, the reason whv they were' became Interested in the foundations, for foundations have money, and they put their peop» in these foundations or connected the people' who were sympathetic to communism in these foundations, and the) got the money fnr the right man outside ihcse foundations, and in sorrtf universities, like Columbia or Yale ot Stanford, which eire known to me, mostlj infested by Soviel sympathizers, and se the Soviel Embassy itself weis nol obligated to spend much money. Mr. Keele, You have- mentioned the names nf three American universities, Columbia. A'ede and Stanford. Mr. Bogolepov. That is righl. Mr. Keele. Did those names appeal also in those dispatches, the names el those universities? 1/r. Bogolepov. Yes. sir; more tha* often ... 1/r. Keele. Weis there a time on occasion when you yourself were offered assistance by one of these foundations! Mr. Bogolepov. Acs sir. il weis on' time in 192!! or beginning of 1929 wheij I weis in Geneva as ei secretary general of one of the Soviel delegations, of on»J of the international conferences heW in Geneva under the auspices of th1' Leag givei the I some Irodi, ber li me v Paris orgai for I Be that endo valua in th ofW evide appn WOull to -eei gotte M, Mn-i in m from hi,, i mip of ;r idad al co the s, iiiteri study 'rnrni ?0u, whet] .lea,.| till' 1 Forei 'I'lelrl -Hlvll form ''."ll 'lie-,,, thai Die- | woul, "lill,' Offic. 1/, that M, *W| ''im 1 1, polii low "i'eil 'he g So FAI I FORI \1 NKWS \,„,.,„;„■,.
