Formal Determinations on Records Release

AGENCY: Assassination Records Review Board.

ACTION: Assassination Record Designation.


SUMMARY: On August 3, 1995, the Assassination Records Review Board 
(Review Board) designated certain documents as ``assassination 
records'' under the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records 
Collection Act of 1992 (JFK Act.) By issuing this notice, the Review 
Board complies with Section 1400.8 of the Guidance for Interpretation 
and Implementation of the JFK Act that requires the Review Board to 
publish in the Federal Register its determinations regarding which 
records meet the definition of assassination records within 30 days of 
the date of the decision.

T. Jeremy Gunn, Acting General Counsel and Associate Director for 
Research and Analysis, Assassination Records Review Board, Second 
Floor, 600 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20530, (202) 724-0088, fax 
(202) 724-0457.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 3, 1995, the Review Board, by 
unanimous vote, designated all serials dated after January 1, 1960, in 
sections 1-16 of the FBI Headquarters file on Sam Giancana, 92-3171, as 
``assassination records'' pursuant to sections 7(i)(2)(A) and 
9(c)(1)(A) of the JFK Act and sections 1400.1 and 1400.8 of the 
Guidance for Interpretation and Implementation of the JFK Act (to be 
codified at 36 CFR part 1400). In not designating any materials prior 
to 1960 as ``assassination records,'' the Review Board relied upon the 
advice of its staff, which conducted a thorough review of sections 1-
16, that the pre-1960 materials were not reasonably related to 
President John F. Kennedy or his assassination. The FBI has already 
recognized sections 16-37 as ``assassination records'' and they are 
being processed under the JFK Act.

Review Board Decision

    FBI Headquarters file 92-3171 for the period January 1, 1960, 
through January 1, 1963, is designated an ``assassination record.''

    Dated: August 16, 1995.
David G. Marwell,
Executive Director, Assassination Records Review Board.
