FOIA The Dead

Gus Savage

Gus Savage worked as a civil rights activist and spokesman for the Progressive Party before he was elected to Congress to represent the South Side of Chicago. His lengthy FBI file covers that earlier activism, an (unsuccessful) loyalty check during an application for a federal government job, and investigations into threats against him during his time in office.
