Old-Time Coroner's Reports Shed Light on Deaths
Richly detailed stories are available online for St. Louis and six Missouri counties. Together, the records
cover 90 years to 1932.
By Cheryl Wittenauer, Associated Press Writer
ST. LOUIS — On the surface, former Missouri Lt. Gov. Thomas Reynolds had
everything: a wife, community stature, a law practice in St. Louis.
But a coroner's inquest conducted at Lynch's Undertaking Establishment tells a
different story of Reynolds, who left Missouri briefly with other Confederate
exiles during the Civil War.

Naples Daily News
Guest Editorial: Presidential library
Not many empty shelves at Bill Clinton's library
By Special to the Daily News
July 12, 2004
In its eight years, the Clinton administration generated more than
controversy. It generated paper, lots of paper, truckloads of paper, to be
precise. You can see why the former president's book ran to 970 pages and
may, in fact, be only the first volume of his memoirs.

Lost hopes: adoption papers destroyed
By CRAIG BILDSTIEN
12jul04
HUNDREDS – maybe more – of former wards of the state and their families will
never learn more about their childhood.
Files – some of which could date back to the late 1800s – have been destroyed,
erasing the personal history of an unknown number of South Australians. Records
were discovered missing when archival searches on behalf of individuals wanting
to retrace their past turned up only index cards.

Philippa Stevenson: Time to get history on the
record or it will disappear
13.07.2004
COMMENT
When you're having a good old clean-out of the cupboards
there's a fine line between hopelessly out-of-date and
treasured history.
You may toss out last month's magazine but keep one from
10, five or just two years ago because, already, the march of
time has lifted some content from banal to significant.

EDITORIAL: Saving the Bay's history
12.07.2004 - Hawkes Bay Today
The Bay's recorded history is short, and the early days
were sometimes racially charged.
However, that history, along with the earlier Maori oral
tradition, are our links to the past and should be precious
to all who live in the region.
Understanding what happened, and why it happened, in
past decades and centuries influences how we think and
act today. Obvious examples are claims to the Waitangi
Tribunal

Delete our cultural heritage?

this has enormous implications for the arts, says

Cautious Whitehall keeps the secret
state alive
By Ben Fenton
(Filed: 12/07/2004)
The Government's passion for secrecy while it talks
about openness is revealed today after a study by The
Daily Telegraph that raises serious concerns about the
new Freedom of Information Act.
It shows that more than 76,000 files which have
passed the normal 30-year closure period laid down
by the Public Record Act remain hidden on the Lord
Chancellor's instructions.

Mystery and absurdity of secret
Britain
By Ben Fenton
(Filed: 12/07/2004)
Britain's mountain of secret documents, a pile that
would stand taller than Nelson's Column, contains
information that is genuinely dangerous, mysteriously
obscure and just plain absurd.

Bar Code Détente: U.S. Finally

Technology aids search for MIAs
BY Matthew French
July 12, 2004
An enduring legacy of war is that some warfighters disappear — whether they are taken
prisoner and never returned, lost in the chaos of battle or destroyed in battle so that their
bodies are unidentifiable. Those combatants listed as missing in action stir the nation's
psyche.
A Navy organization in Hawaii has been working to investigate, find and identify missing U.
S. servicemen. Information technology allows their researchers and analysts to more
easily find relevant documents and interpret facts to link cases.
