To Whom It May Concern:

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

I am interested in receiving any and all materials pertaining to General G. Baker Jr., who was born in in Detroit, Mi on Sept 6, 1941 and passed away on May 18, 2014. Mr. Baker refused induction into the Army on Sept. 10, 1965, and was subsequently declared a security risk by draft officials (Detective Cox). Mr Baker was associated with the anti-war movement, the September 10th movement, UHURU, the Revolutionary Action Movement, and later, the Dodge Revolutionary Movement (DRUM) and the League of Revolutionary Black Workers. I request access to any and all relevant files, including correspondence between your office and any local (State of Michigan police and/or cities of Detroit and/or Hamtramck police) and federal governmental agencies, including the FBI and CIA; intelligence reports; counterintelligence, news clippings; photos, phone taps, pictures, etc.

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.

Sincerely,

David Goldberg
