Summary:

Hundreds of letters and photographs are missing from the National Archives, including a color photo of Nancy Reagan and a portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt, WTOP Radio of Washington, D.C., reported after obtaining investigation reports under FOIA. The Archives lacked a strict system of registration for most of its 10 billion items stored around the country, making it difficult to determine if the items were stolen, lost or misplaced.
