Nearly a quarter million pages of records from the Reagan White House are finally going to be released to the public today, thanks to an executive order signed by President Barack Obama. Under the Presidential Records Act of 1978, the documents were supposed to have been made available to the public after January 20, 2001; twelve years after Reagan left the White House. However, on March 23, 2001, only five weeks after assuming the presidency, President Bush ordered the National Archives not to release the Reagan papers to the public. Bush also kept sealed the papers of Reagan’s vice-president, who happened to be Bush’s father.
