CIA agents seize senator's papers from UW Library

Rob Lopresti writes "The Everett (Wa) Herald reports that five government agents, including representatives of the CIA, Energy and Defense Depts, removed papers from the archival collection of Senator Henry (Scoop) Jackson at the University of Washington. Fewer than ten documents were removed.

"Rickerson said the papers, now considered classified, are being held in a secure location on campus until federal authorities declassify them."

The papers were donated by Jackson's widow following his death twenty years ago."
