Robert Parry was an investigative journalist best known for his groundbreaking coverage of the Iran–Contra Affair while at the Associated Press. His short FBI file documents an investigation into a Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) chapter he founded at his alma mater.

The Colby College chapter he led was not apparently successful. According to the FBI report, it attracted only two freshmen, and "none of the three members were particularly enthused about the organization."
