Subject: FOIA request -- Plant Informant Program (1940-1969)
July 9, 2011
Dear FBI Records Section:
This email is a request under the Freedom of Information and Privacy Acts.
I request a complete and thorough search of all filing systems and locations for all records maintained by your agency pertaining to and/or captioned:
Plant Informant Program (1940-1969)
In 1940, the FBI established this program to place informers in American industries in the workplace. Tens of thousands of people participated in this program. The program ended in 1969. This file has been released before some years ago to Prof. Sigmund Diamond.
This request specifically includes where appropriate "main" files and "see references," including but not limited to numbered and lettered sub files and control files. I also request a search of the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Index, or any similar technique for locating records of electronic surveillance. I request that all records be produced with the administrative pages. I wish to be sent copies of "see reference" cards, abstracts, search slips, including search slips used to process this request, file covers, multiple copies of the same documents if they appear in a file, tapes of any electronic surveillance, photographs, and logs of physical surveillance (FISUR). Please place missing documents on "special locate."
Please provide the material to me in an electronic form on CD-ROM.
Please also look at cross references.
