To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the FBI's files on Joseph "Joe" Weider.
Joe Weider was born in Canada on November 29, 1919 and died of heart failure at 93 years old, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, on March 23rd 2013.
Mr. Weider founded both the Weider line of dietary supplements and the Weider line of exercise equipment, in addition to being a founder of the International Federation of BodyBuilders and creator of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding contest. He also published numerous bodybuilding magazines (Muscle & Fitness, Flex, and Men's Fitness and Shape).
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.
There are eFOIA files available for you to download.
Thanks so much for your help with this request! I really appreciate it.
