To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

FBI file on Herbert G. Gutman. Mr. Gutman was an American historian who taught at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York, NY, at the time of his death on July 21, 1985. He was 57.

I previously requested this FBI file and received 441 pages covering the years 1948 to 1968. A link to an obituary in the New York Times can be found at: http://www.nytimes.com/1985/07/22/nyregion/prof-herbert-gutman-labor-historian-is-dead.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 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.

Sincerely,

Ivan Greenberg, PhD

From: Ivan Greenberg

I wish to follow up on the matter of the FBI file on Herbert G. Gutman.

In a letter of November 19, 2015, FBI says that records potentially response to this FOIA request have been sent to NARA. Two FBI files are listed: 100-HQ-11550 and 100-HQ-391630.

In my request letter, I indicated that I had in the past requested the Gutman file and was sent 441 pages. I am working with a different FBI file number for the Gutman records. This file number is 100-18396.

This should be the main file on the subject. For your information, this FBI file number is listed for Gutman in a June 3, 1965, FBI memorandum under the title, "Demonstrations Protesting U.S. Intervention in Viet Nam." A full copy of this memorandum is reprinted in my book, Surveillance in America: Critical Analysis of the FBI, 1920 to the Present (Lexington Books, 2012) following p. 188.

Can you please search your records by file number to locate this file.

Sincerely,
Ivan Greenberg, PhD
