Reagan Library Discovers Additional Roberts Records
Washington, DC…The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, one of eleven Presidential Libraries that are part of the National Archives and Records Administration, has approximately 55 million pages of materials related to the Reagan Presidency. To date, the Library has opened 51,285 pages of records relating to Judge John G. Roberts.
In processing requests, the Library followed its standard search procedure by searching for Roberts records using his name. During the expedited processing of these records, the Library noticed a code, "CU AT 18," associated with tracking sheets in the Roberts materials. The Library ran a search on that code, and on Monday, August 29, discovered a large volume of White House Office of Records Management Subject case files that were entered into the system only by the code for John Roberts (instead of his name). Some of these materials will be duplicative of previously opened files.
The Library is now in the process of determining what documents within these case files relate to John Roberts. In order to make this material available as soon as possible, the National Archives has directed additional personnel from Washington, DC and other libraries to assist the Reagan Library staff in the expedited review of these records.
