To Whom It May Concern:

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

A copy of all files regarding Maurice Girodias, aka Maurice Kahane, (1919 - 1990) publisher of Olympia Press.

Girodias was party to numerous lawsuits and obscenity charges regarding his publications

In 1974, according to the New York Times:

"A State Department spokesman said the Department had taken no action concerning Mr. Girodias, but Edward Kavazanjian, a criminal investigator with the Immigration and Naturalization Service here, confirmed that the bureau had ordered Mr. Girodias to leave the United States by mid‐June."

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,

Mary Jo Watts
