To Whom It May Concern:
1) This is a FOIA Request
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
All information security and security posters created by or displayed at or archived by what is now Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and its predecessor entities (including, for example, but not limited to University of California Radiation Laboratory at Livermore, the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, etc). You may restrict your search to records between and including the dates of January 1, 1952 to December 31, 1969. Please when available provide provenance such as the artist, division, and date created and/or displayed.
To assist with finding some of these records please note that I have uploaded files showing the following: Sandia Lab Newsletter for August 18, 1961 (attached) identifies Ben Aiken (8233-3) as a prominent artist for these security posters. Please also note that Technical Illustration and the Technical Art Division are amongst the lab components identified as producing these sorts of posters. My provision of this information should not be interpreted as a request that you limit your search only to these records or records produced by those divisions.
As the FOIA requires please release all reasonably segregable portions of responsive records. If you withhold records or portions of records then please indicate under which exemption you claim to do so and provide me with my options for appeal.
2) Fees and Fee Status
I am a PhD student at the University of New Mexico and the information requested is for academic and public education purposes, including my PhD dissertation project, and not primarily for commercial use. Furthermore, I will make responsive records available to the public via my academic publications and presentations as well as on social media and my blog. Please note that you can access my UNM student profile page at the following url: https://anthropology.unm.edu/people/grad-students/profile/martin-pfeiffer.html.
Therefore, as per Sack v. DOD (2016) I qualify for educational institution fee status and ask that you process my request accordingly. In your response please confirm that you will be processing my request under the educational institution fee status. I agree to pay fees up to $30 without additional notice. In the event that there are fees exceeding $30 then please inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request.
3) Record Delivery and Communications
I hereby request that all records generated by this request be delivered in electronic format via email or, if that is not possible, on CD-ROM if available. If you have any questions or information regarding this request then please do not hesitate to contact me, preferably via email. Please provide an email address through which I can contact you to discuss this request. You may, and I request that you do so, engage in rolling release of responsive documents.
I look forward to receiving your response within the twenty day statutory period. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and time in this matter.
