I very much doubt it and think it would be better to refer this to the C.C. Politbureau. (Also find out for which departments or subjects?)
 Written in reply to the following proposal of M. N. Pokrovsky: “Vladimir Ilyich: we at the First Moscow University are now setting up a social science department. We have appointed all the Communists who could be allowed to lecture. But there is little hope of their actual participation. It is highly tempting to make use of Mensheviks (Groman, Yermansky, Sukhanov, Cherevanin and Martov). What do you think about this?” (Central Party Archives of the Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the C.P.S.U. Central Committee.)
