Out of the hundreds of letters Graves' office received on this topic, he destroyed all but thirty. Copies of related articles and editorials from The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report, and the Oregonian sent with the correspondence have not been included here due to copyright restrictions.
