Finding Aid for Files of the Communist Party of the USA in the Comintern Archives

The website listed in all catalog entries for the Finding Aid for the microfilm of the Files of the Communist Party of the USA in the Comintern Archives appears to be inoperative. Further, some libraries (such as Princeton) do not have a paper version of the Finding Aid. Does anyone on H-HOAC know where I might find a copy of the Findiing Aid?  (I'm a historian of labor, not communism, so I apologize if the answer to this is already well known.)

Thanks,

CPUSA membership

The discussion of CPUSA membership after the Pact reminds me that it would be a nice project for someone to bring together documents or citations to documents that provide reliable numbers of CPUSA membership by year. 

We have all sorts of estimates from the origins of the party to the 60s and 70s, but my impression is that for many years these are just estimates, educated and sometimes no-so-educated guesses based on limited or no ducumentation.
