To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
The personnel file of Neil J. Welch (August 9, 1926 - June 29, 2017), who was an FBI employee from 1951 to 1980. Welch served as Special Agent-in-Charge for a number of field offices including Buffalo in 1966, Detroit, Philadelphia in 1975, and New York in 1978 until his retirement. Proof of death is not required as his death was widely reported: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/11/us/politics/neil-welch-dead-fbi-abscam-kitty-genovese.html
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.
