New Hitch in FDR Papers-Deal

Back in November I noted that a body of FDR papers might soon be available to researchers after a law was passed waiving NARA claims over the documents (on condition that they then be donated to the NARA-run FDR Presidential Library). President Obama signed the law this week, but now, the NYTimes reports, a bankruptcy filing by the papers' owners (Sun-Times Media Group) may throw a major wrench in the works.

Officials for the company says the donation should still go forward, bankruptcy proceedings, but that it "could take some time."
