Multi Request NSA-FBI: Horst Feistel


From: Charles Berret

To Whom It May Concern:

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

A copy of National Security Agency files on Horst Feistel (1915-1990), a German-born cryptographer who emigrated to the US and worked on the design of ciphers at IBM.

As an Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia, I request that the fees be waived for these documents pertaining to my historical study of cryptography research during the Cold War.

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.
