Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: Michael Best

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Records relating to Robert R. Mullen, who was a campaign press secretary for Dwight D. Eisenhower, information director for the Marshall Plan, which provided assistance to Europe after World War II, and then became Eisenhower's press secretary. In 1952, Mr. Mullen formed the Robert R. Mullen Company, a public relations concern based in the capital that included as its clients the American Bar Association, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the American Automobile Association. He retired from the company in 1972. A Watergate committee report and a CIA document revealed that the Robert Mullen Company has in at least two instances been a front for CIA operations abroad. Please include a cross-reference search for E. Howard Hunt Jr. and the Robert Mullen Company.

As Robert Mullen's death has been widely and extensively reported, proof of death is not required. His obituary may be found at

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.
