Annenberg Records in Grave Danger

Earlier today, I appeared on the Jerry Agar radio show, in Chicago, talking about my efforts to gain access to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge records. After my appearance, a spokesman for the University of Illinois at Chicago phoned Agar, read a statement, and was interviewed. Agar did a fantastic job of drawing this fellow out, and what emerged alarms me profoundly. Although the statement read by this spokesman for UIC claimed that the university was aggressively pursuing an agreement for legal possession of the documents, under questioning, this university spokesman clearly raised the possibility that no such agreement would be signed and that the entire Chicago Annenberg Challenge records would be returned to the donor, who he refused to name. You can listen to the interview here.

I will have more shortly.
