  • Jul 1, 2016 - Drug Traffickers and the Freedom of Information Act

    I admit it: I stalk dead drug traffickers in libraries, archives, newspapers, databases, films, photos, literature, and documents. One of my favorite tools, however, is the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which is turning 50 years old on July 4, 2016. While the FOIA is useful for historians, over the years I have found that it takes substantive prior research for a request to be successful or for it to prove an asset for a historical project. Throughout my career, I have relied on the work of other scholars who have used FOIA.
