|Abstract|| Lengthy report back to the US State Department by Murray, who was then in charge of the U.S. Consulate in Tihran, on the Bahá'ís in the Middle East, the "Imbrie affair," the character of the Bahá'ís, and the possibility of the Faith's spread in Persia.|
|Notes|| On July 18, 1924, American Vice Consul Robert Whitney Imbrie was beaten to death in Tehran. Initially the Bahá'ís were accused as the murderers, but follow-up reports showed the attack to have been the result of a mob uprising.|
This report was researched in the U.S. State Department Records, Near East Affairs Division, by Robert Stauffer.
Regarding the "Imbrie affair," see also New York Times articles, Vice Counsel Robert Imbrie's report to the U.S. Secretary of State, and a personal interview with a witness to the attack.
