in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Joelson's file on Ginsberg pertains to Ginsberg' search at a New York Airport for narcotics and his complaint about a subsequent attempt to entrap him. It contains a letter from Ginsberg reporting the "Kafkian" experience of being searched for drugs and an attempted set up by narcotics agents using Jack Martin; Joelson's reply denying the "Kafkian" nature of the search; Joelson's cover letter to Joseph M. Bowman at the Treasury Dept.; Joelson's letter to Ginsberg forwarding Bowman's interim reply; a letter from George H. Gaffney, Acting Commissioner of Narcotics to Joelson explaining the situation and advising Joelson not to reply to Ginsberg as the latter might print it out of context; Joelson's reply to Gaffney; a letter from Ginsberg to Joelson asking why there has been no action on his complaint about at attempted set up and calling for an end to the "silly shooting" in Vietnam; and Joelson's reply that the Bureau of Narcotics is following law enforcement practices designed to enforce laws and taking issue with the "silly shootiing" remark pointing out that Ginsberg's acclaim as a poet does not give him the credentials to comment on political and international affairs and pointing out the fate of creative writers under totalitarian regimes. An additional letter from Ginsberg encloses a clipping from the New York Times and requests him to repudiate the House Un-American Activities Commitee and its questioning of Jerry Rubin, and notes that the war has corrupted judgment and common sense
