Mr. Brown--

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information Act request of June
19, 2018, for records in the custody of the National Archives and Records
Administration. Your request for FBI case file *116-HQ-420274* on *Authur
Hinton Rosenfeld, Jr.* was received in this office on July 5, 2018, and
assigned FOIA case number *RD 57654*.

I have completed a line-by-line review of FBI case file 116-HQ-420274 and
released information to the greatest extent possible. The file has been
redacted to to protect the identities of confidential sources per 5 USC 552
(b)(7)(D); and to protect information exempted from disclosure by statute
per 5 USC 552 (b)(3). The relevant statute in support of the (b)(3)
withholding is 50 USC 3024 (i)(1), which protects sensitive intelligence
sources and methods. A summary of the results of this review is provided
below:

FBI case file 116-HQ-420274: 96 total pages; 93 pages released in full and
3 pages released in redacted form.

You requested a waiver for reproduction fees ordinarily charged to
researchers.
Records transferred to the custody of the National Archives are exempt from
the fee and fee waiver provisions of the Freedom of Information Act because
a fee schedule was in effect prior to enactment. The applicable section
states that “nothing in this subparagraph shall supersede fees chargeable
under a statute specifically providing for setting the level of fees for
particular types of records” (5 U.S.C. 552 (a)(4)(A)(vi)). The relevant fee
statute authorizes the National Archives “to charge a fee for making or
authenticating copies or reproductions of materials transferred to the
Archivist’s custody.” (44 U.S.C. 2116(c)). The inability to grant the
requested fee waiver does not constitute a denial under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act.

You​ or your representative may view the releasable version of the file in
Room 4000, the reading room operated by the Motion Pictures Branch at the
National Archives facility in College Park, Maryland. Please contact
Jessica Hartman at least one week in advance of your visit at
Jessica.Hartman@nara.gov to arrange to see the file. When you arrive in the
reading room, staff will provide a CD/DVD with a copy of the file in .pdf
format that can be transferred to a blank CD/DVD or to your personal
storage device. There is no charge to transfer the file, unless you need to
purchase a blank CD/DVD in the reading room.

If you cannot visit our College Park facility, you may order a reproduction
copy at the cost of $.80 per page. Please contact Ms. Hartman to place an
order.

This concludes the processing of your request. If you have additional
questions concerning my review of this file, please contact me directly at
Amanda.Weimer@nara.gov or at (301) 837-0604.

If you are not satisfied with our action on this request, you have the
right to file an administrative appeal within ninety (90) calendar days
from the date of this letter. Appeals must be in writing and may be
delivered by regular U.S. mail or by e-mail. By filing an appeal, you
preserve your rights under the Freedom of Information Act and present the
deciding agency with an opportunity to review your request and reconsider
its decision. If you submit your appeal by regular mail, it should be
addressed to the Deputy Archivist of the United States (ND), National
Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, Room 4200, College
Park, Maryland 20740-6001. Both the letter and envelope should be clearly
marked “FOIA Appeal.” If you submit your appeal by e-mail, please send it
to foia@nara.gov, addressed to the Deputy Archivist, with the words “FOIA
Appeal” in the subject line. Please be certain to explain why you believe
this response does not meet the requirements of the Freedom of Information
Act. All communications concerning this request should reference FOIA case
number RD 57654.
