Written by JPat Brown

In celebration of our 100th article in the Subjects Matter: FBI Files Project, we put together a chronological guide to the work we’ve done so far, documenting over a century of fear and filing cabinets.

Thanks to Evan Anderson, Michael Best, Nicole Bousquet, Chris Caesar, Jasper Craven, Todd Feathers, Gabi Gage, Anna Geary-Meyer, Matt Guariglia, Inkoo Kang, Lukas Knight, Matt Lee, George LeVines, Beryl Lipton, Waqas Mirza, Michael Morisy, Shawn Musgrave, Tom Nash, Zack Sampson, Conor Skelding, Carly Sitrin, Brian Sparks, Daniel Welch, and to everyone who’s contributed to the project’s crowdfund.

As we enter into the next century of surveillance, we’ll keep fighting to make sure that scrutiny goes both ways.
