To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All records mentioning Ben Haden (October 18, 1925 – October 24, 2013). As a notable person (an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, internationally known through the religious broadcast, Changed Lives, background in the CIA and as CEO for a daily newspaper, and the speaker on the Radio Bible Study Hour), this death is well known common knowledge widely publicized in mainstream media, thus proof of death is not required.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.
An acknowledgement letter, stating the request is being processed.
The request has been rejected, with the agency stating that the information or document(s) requested are exempt from disclosure.
