Dear Mr. Best:

Thank you for writing to the National Archives and Records Administration.
This is in response to your recent Freedom of Information Act request dated
April 02, 2017 in regards to several Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
case files on *Timothy Leary*. It was received in this office April 05,
2017 and was originally assigned FOIA case tracking number *RD 52658*.

I am writing to you because you requested FBI case file *100-HQ-481974,
serials 75x, PTT, 740-750, 68*. I located this case file. The main
subject of this file *James William Taggert, Jr.* However, Timothy Leary
is cited throughout this entire case file, not just the particular serials
that you requested. The file was compiled as part of an internal security
investigation conducted between December 1974 and March 1976.

Are you still interested in these particular serials or the entire case
file?

You may contact me back directly by telephone at 301-837-3042
<(301)%20837-3042> or by e-mail at Christina.Jones@nara.gov.

Dear Mr. Best:

Thank you for writing to the National Archives and Records Administration.
This is in response to your recent Freedom of Information Act request dated
April 02, 2017 in regards to several Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
case files on *Timothy Leary*. It was received in this office April 05,
2017 and was originally assigned FOIA case tracking number *RD 52658*.

I am writing to you because you requested FBI case file *100-NY-170922-37P1*.
The new FOIA case number for this request is *RD 52913*. I located the
case file. The main subject of this entire case file, not just serial 37
page 1 is Timothy Leary. The file is approximately 200 pages; and was
compiled as part of an internal security investigation conducted between
September 1970 and October 1987.

Are you still interested in this particular serial or the entire case file?

You may contact me back directly by telephone at 301-837-3042
<(301)%20837-3042> or by e-mail at Christina.Jones@nara.gov with that
information.

Thank you,

Dear Mr. Best,

I am writing in further response to your Freedom of Information Act request
of April 2, 2017 for records in the custody of the National Archives and
Records Administration. Your request for FBI serials 100-SF-70167-7,
100-SF-25447-91 and 100-SF-25447-106 on Timothy Leary was received in this
office on April 5, 2017 and assigned FOIA tracking number 52905.

I have completed a line-by-line review of FBI serials 100-SF-70167-7,
100-SF-25447-91 and 100-SF-25447-106, and released information to the
greatest extent possible. The serials have been redacted to protect the
personal privacy of living individuals per 5 USC 552 (b)(6); and protect
the identities of confidential sources per 5 USC 552 (b)(7)(D). A summary
of the results of my review is provided below:

FBI serial 100-SF-70167-7: 38 total pages; 17 pages released in full and 21
pages released in redacted form.

FBI serial 100-SF-25447-91: 30 total pages; 29 pages released in full and 1
page released in redacted form.

FBI serial 100-SF-25447-106: 25 total pages; 25 pages released in full.

You or your representative may view the redacted file at the National
Archives facility in College Park, MD. Please contact our office at least
one week in advance of your visit at specialaccess_foia@nara.gov or
301-837-3190 to arrange to see the file. If you cannot visit our College
Park facility, you may order a reproduction copy at the cost of $0.80 per
page by contacting our office to place an order.

This concludes the processing of your request. If you have questions
concerning my review, please contact me directly.

right to file an administrative appeal within ninety (90) calendar days
from the date of this letter. Appeals must be in writing and may be
delivered by regular U.S. mail or by e-mail. By filing an appeal, you
preserve your rights under the Freedom of Information Act and present the
deciding agency with an opportunity to review your request and reconsider
its decision. If you submit your appeal by regular mail, it should be
addressed to the Deputy Archivist of the United States (ND), National
Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, Room 4200, College
Park, Maryland 20740-6001. Both the letter and envelope should be clearly
marked “FOIA Appeal.” If you submit your appeal by e-mail, please send it
to foia@nara.gov, addressed to the Deputy Archivist, with the words “FOIA
Appeal” in the subject line. If you exercise your right to appeal, please
explain why you believe this response does not meet the requirements of the
Freedom of Information Act. All communications concerning this request
