Summary:

Students from the City University of New York's Graduate School of Journalism used FOIA to show that the FBI kept a file on Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author David Halberstam. Documents released from the dossier show the Bureau kept files from at least 1965 until 1987. Subjects included Halberstam's reporting from Poland in the 1960s and his marriage to a Polish woman; according to earlier published reports, Halberstam and his wife were expelled from Poland by officials as a result of his coverage of Polish communist leaders.
