DONOR

ACCESS
Open. In 1992, the FBI released this redacted version under the Freedom for Information Act. The Ford Library does not hold an un-redacted copy. Appeals on access to redacted portions of the case file should be submitted to the FBI.

COPYRIGHT
Works prepared by U.S. Government employees as part of their official duties are in the public domain. The copyrights to materials written by other individuals or organizations are presumed to remain with them.

SPECIAL NOTE
In an earlier version of the Jane Dannenhauer Files finding aid, this case file was listed as being part of the Dannenhauer Files. It was added to the Dannenhauer Files because the collection includes a copy of a similar document, the FBIs final investigatory report on Rockefeller, see series: Vice Presidential Nominee Nelson Rockefeller Background Investigation File. Because the case file did not originate in the Ford White House, the Ford Library created a separate collection for the case file.
