To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Documents, including but not limited to memos, newsletters, and other ephemera mentioning the "NSA Clown Club", which existed for an indeterminate period during the 1970s. For reference, I have enclosed a declassified Cryptologic Almanac article on "Uncle" Ned Clark, a member of the club.

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.
