Material noted in bold within this collection is currently available for research use. If a folder is available for research use it may still have withdrawn material due to Freedom of Information Act restrictions.

The non-bolded folders are subject to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests under the provisions of the Presidential Records Act (PRA).

Office of the Counsel of the President, Associate Counsel

This collection is arranged into three series: SERIES I: Subject File; SERIES II: Chronological File and SERIES III: MCA Investigation - Department of Justice Files


Series III consists of photocopied documents from the Department of Justice files relating to investigations of the Music Corporation of America over a thirty year period beginning in the 1940s. Most of this material was apparently supplied by the DOJ to a requester via the Freedom of Information Act, therefore there are redacted portions on the copies. There is no documentation on the copies as to the restriction categories of the redactions. The photocopies appear to have been obtained from DOJ by the Office of the Counsel of the President in reaction to inquiries posed to the President in 1984 by Variety Magazine concerning this lengthy investigation.
