To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Records relating to or mentioning Lyndon Baines Johnson (August 27, 1908 – January 22, 1973). Proof of death is not required, as the date of birth is over 100 years ago. Please include but do not limit the release to the 1,518 pages previously referred to OGA's and the approximately 900 pages previously released directly by the Bureau.

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.

From: Emma North-Best

I am appealing the integrity of the search in its entirety, including but not limited to the decision to not perform a specific search using the criteria I supplied, as well as the decision to ignore the explicit instructions of the request that "if previously released
records are available, then I request a rolling release consisting of those records while additional records are located and processed for release." Preprocessed records and records posted on the Vault in response to someone else's request plainly do not satisfy that.
