Immigration Inspector Deuber, “STATEMENT OF EVEZLOTCHEVER ADAMS,” St. Louis, MO, January 10, 1920, 2 pages. 

Contents: This is a continuation by a different agent of the Farrell interview of the same date.

Significant Content:
Note that this interviewer is an "Immigration Agent," a second sign that Eve's immigration status and possible deportation is at stake. See the first reference to "deportation" by Agent McLaughin, 1920, January 8

Page One:
Eve says "I belong to the Ladies Waist Makers Union in New York."

She's evasive about reading Communist literature.

She's asked how long she's been working for The Liberator and she says "eight months or a year."

She says she doesn't take subscriptions for The Big Stick.

Page Two:
Eve is asked how old she was when she arrived in the US and she says "I refuse to answer."

Why? Later, Eve answers "Yes," when the Inspector asks her "How old were you when you left the old country 20 1/2 years old?" See Eve's birth certificate, 1891; see her age listed on her arrival document, 1912.

Eve says she stayed in New York City when she arrived, with her uncle "Midgall" (his first name was Isidore, and he actually spelled his last name Meegdal). See The Daring Life and Dangerous Times of Eve Adams, p. 10.

Eve says she stayed in New York five years. That would have been from 1912 through 1917.
