From: Sam OstIe

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All files and records mentioning, describing or referring to Alvin Goldstein (born January 10, 1936 – died December 19, 2013, formerly of Brooklyn, New York)

His 2013 death has been widely publicised, such as on his Wikipedia page:

Al Goldstein was an American pornographer. He is known for helping normalize hardcore pornography in the United States.

I am requesting a waiver of all applicable fees seeing as the release of these documents is of high public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the government nor would their release provide a primary commercial benefit to myself as a requester.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
