From: JPat Brown

To Whom It May Concern:

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

A copy of the FBI's files on the New Zealand journalist Edward "Ted" Scott, who wrote for then English language Havana Post. Proof of death is not required, as Scott was born in 1905, and would be over 100 years old. Nevertheless, I have attached an obituary.

This is the second time I have filed this request. The first time the FBI advised not enough information was provided to locate his file. I've attached screenshot from Ernest Hemingway's FBI file that shows the Bureau was in contact with him through the Havana LEGAT in the mid-'50s.

I am journalist who writes extensively about FBI files - https://www.muckrock.com/project/subjects-matter-fbi-files-10/, which have received national and international attention - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3219376/Undercover-FBI-agents-spy-annual-Burning-Man-festival-light-ongoing-war-terrorism-use-test-new-intelligence-collection-technology.html

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.
