The Sixth Batch

by Joseph Backes

The National Archives released documents separate from any ARRB activity on November 6, 1995. They were released under the JFK assassination records act. Also acknowledged in the press release were the ARRB releases on October 19 and 26. To quote the November 6, 1995 Press release, "The newly released materials include 36 boxes from the "Segregated Collection" of CIA records pertaining to the assassination. These records consist of documents created by the staff of the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) during its review of CIA records. Among the records are: correspondence between the committee and the CIA: notes taken by HSCA staff during reviews of CIA records and interviews of CIA personnel; transcripts of interviews conducted in Mexico City; and drafts of issue summaries and sections of the Committee's report. Many of these documents are released with segments postponed.

Also included...are FBI records on Carlos Marcello (4 boxes), anti-Cuban activist Orlando Bosch Avila (8 boxes) and other subjects of interest to the HSCA. Approximately 300 pages of daily shrift reports of the White House Detail from the records of the Secret Service for November 1963 are being opened for the first time.

48 documents from the Department of State's Passport Office are being released in full.

52 FBI and CIA documents released by the ARRB on October 19th and October 26 are also available for research."

There has also apparently been an FBI transfer to NARA on November 3, 1995. I do not have a document count or number of boxes released. I will duplicate the page I got from the ARRB as exactly as I can,
