Are you in the files?


The spy files were kept on organizations, not individuals, but the names of more than 3,000 people appear in them.

Because the Tribune believes that people have a right to see the information the police kept on them, we have set up a way for individuals to see if they are in the files while protecting the privacy of others and these historical documents.

Those who want to know if they are in the files can e-mail the Tribune at



com, send a brief note by mail to 'Secret Watchers,' Portland Tribune, 620 S.W. Fifth Ave., Suite 400, Portland, OR 97204, or call 503-226-6397.
