Scope and Content Notes:
Folders in this subseries are arranged chronologically and most of the materials are newspaper clippings collected by Thornburgh since the "official" legal case files remain with the U.S. Attorney's Office. It should be noted, however, that there are extremely interesting references to cases in the "Memoranda" section. The cases involve official corruption in Pennsylvania government, organized crime and racketeering. The bulk of the material focuses on the official corruption case involving District Attorney Robert Duggan, chief of Pittsburgh's Racket Squad.
