John Reznikoff is interviewed in thisBoston Globe article about his appraisal of 62 boxes of closely guarded archival material relating to Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968) in his role as U.S. Attorney General. Many maintain that the files--some of which are classified--should never have been permitted to leave the National Archives; they are currently in the custody of the Kennedy Family.
WASHINGTON — A trove of documents housed in a secure vault at the John F. Kennedy Library has long been described as Robert F. Kennedy’s private papers and been kept from public view by the Kennedy family. But many of the documents have little to do with personal matters and instead detail once-secret military and intelligence activities he helped manage as attorney general, according to an unpublished index of the collection obtained by The Boston Globe.
Scholars and government officials believe the 62 boxes of files covering Kennedy’s three years as attorney general during his brother’s administration could provide insights into critical Cold War decisions on issues ranging from the Cuban missile crisis to Vietnam.
