CPSU CC

On the material remuneration of Marcel-Charles Longuet

The Institute of Marxism-Leninism under the CPSU CC (Comr. Yegorov) submits hereby the proposal to pay Marcel-Charles Longuet, great-grandson of K. Marx residing in Paris, 20 thousand French franks for important documents of K. Marx handed over to the Institute in 1979, as well as considering his serious illness and rather constrained financial circumstances.

Marcel-Charles Longuet has fruitfully cooperated for a long time with the Institute of Marxism-Leninism under the CPSU CC and handed over a significant body of documents (around 600 total) of remarkable scientific value for studying the life and activities of founders of scientific communism and the history of Marxism.

In 1979, the IML under the CPSU CC received a new collection of documents (altogether over 40) of interest for studies of the biography of K. Marx and the development of the Marxist theory of society.

In preceding years Marcel-Charles Longuet was remunerated for documents received from him. Departments of CPSU CC find it advisable to support the proposal by the IML under the CPSU CC. Approval by the Department of Affairs of the CPSU CC (Comr. Poplavsky A.M.) has been obtained. Enclosed is the draft resolution by the CPSU CC.
