To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any and all records regarding and mentioning Gerald Vincent Bull (March 9, 1928 – March 22, 1990) was a Canadian-American engineer who developed long-range artillery. He moved from project to project in his quest to economically launch a satellite using a huge artillery piece, to which end he designed the Project Babylon "supergun" for the Iraqi government. Bull was assassinated outside his apartment in Brussels, Belgium in March 1990.

His death and circumstances surrounding it have been widely reported:

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.

Sincerely,
