The files kept by the Federal Bureau of Investigation about Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, who led The New York Times as its publisher during its landmark publication of the Pentagon Papers, were destroyed 10 months before his death, according to records requests filed by a reporter.
John R. Bohrer, a 28-year-old contributing writer to Capital New York, said that he discovered the files had been destroyed after spending the last several months sending Freedom of Information Act requests to the F.B.I. and the National Archives.
