Scope and Contents: The American Protective League was active during the time of the United States' involvement in World War I. Its letterhead states that it was "organized with approval and operating under the direction of the United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Investigation." Directors of its New Orleans office were Charles Weinberger, Chief, and A.G. Newmyer and M.M. Levy, Deputy Chiefs. This collection consists mainly of circulars, memos and correspondence from the League office calling meetings or ordering general investigations and of carbons of reports made by agent #849 (possibly Ralph Levy) to the League.
