    Abe Brooks (or Brook, Brock or Bruke) was one of the 249 passengers deported to the Soviet Union in December 1919 aboard the USAT Buford, known as the "Soviet Ark". Brooks was a member of the Union of Russian Workers, one of the organizations targeted in the Red Scare of 1919-1920 and had been arrested for distributing "anarchist" literature in Union Square.
