Re: Transferring records to NARA effectively killing FOIA

To: David Chambers and Julie Herrada:

(1) CPUSA files. Most of the HQ main files are now at NARA and they are often very large (5000+ serials). I suspect that most of the field office files (especially New York City) are either at NARA or will imminently be transferred to NARA.

(2) NATIONAL SECURITY ARCHIVE: It is unlikely that any single person or organization could afford to obtain the most historically significant FBI files -- even if they were still available from the FBI instead of NARA.
