The National Archives (Oct. 18) made public on Oct. 17, 28,000 Nixon administration papers. Many others were still held back. Stanley I. Kutler, a history professor at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, said documents that might shed further light on the Watergate scandal still had not been released on the grounds that they were political rather than governmental. Politics and government are mutually inclusive, inextricably intertwined and impossible to distinguish as separate coherent dichotomies.

The transfer of Richard Nixon's presidential papers and tapes to his library in Yorba Linda could be delayed because the federal budget includes no money to move or house them. Officials at the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace had hoped to begin receiving the material, along with federal staff members to oversee it, later this year. A $3-million request by the National Archives and Records Administration, however, wasn't included in President Bush's 2006 budget request to Congress this month.

The government cleared the way for making public 40 million pages of former President Richard M. Nixon's White House papers and 4,000 hours of taped conversations that have been impounded since Nixon resigned as President on Aug. 9, 1974. Jill Merrill, spokeswoman for the National Archives, said tapes and documents already screened by archivists could be released this spring, unless new barriers are erected. "We have 2 million pages ready to go," she said.

The Nixon Library could finally become, well, a library. Nearly 30 years after Congress barred Richard M. Nixon from keeping his official papers -- and infamous tapes -- when he quit the presidency, a new legislative compromise could set the stage for moving the historic collection from the National Archives in Maryland to the privately run Nixon Library & Birthplace in Yorba Linda.

The first batch of papers from Richard M. Nixon's White House were made public by the National Archives on Monday and they reflected a chief executive and his aides often involved with trivial matters and highly conscious of the political implications of their actions. The 1.5 million documents that were opened to the public appeared to contain no substantial references to the Watergate scandal that led to Nixon's resignation in August, 1974.

The drama of the Nixon presidency's final days may have faded in the public memory, but the fate of his six-year Administration's papers is currently holding historians and scholars in uncomfortable suspense. On Dec. 1--after 12 years of court battles, congressional wrangling and administrative delays--the National Archives is scheduled to make available to the public 1.5 million documents from White House files spanning the period between 1968 and 1974.

The federal government has agreed to pay $18 million to the estate of Richard Nixon to settle claims that the Watergate tapes and other presidential materials were improperly seized by the government in 1974 without compensation. The out-of-court agreement, climaxing a five-month civil trial that ended last year, would result in $6 million in improvements and expansion for the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace in Yorba Linda, Calif.

The Justice Department moved Wednesday to block Julie Nixon Eisenhower from testifying in a court battle over whether the government must pay her father's estate millions of dollars in compensation for papers and tapes seized when he resigned as president. The government also fought the Nixon estate's plan to have its lead attorney, R. Stan Mortenson, take the stand--a rare courtroom maneuver--in the trial that is in its 69th day.

An informer and a man charged with leading a failed plot to bomb the United Nations and other targets discussed kidnaping former President Richard Nixon, a published report says. Lawyers who have seen transcripts of tape-recorded conversations in the case said the two also discussed abducting former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger in a hostage-taking plan aimed at winning the release of Muslims held in the World Trade Center bombing, the New York Times reported in today's editions.
