NEW YORK POST - JANUARY 3, 2003
RUDY'S RECORDS RETURNED TO CITY
By FRANKIE EDOZIEN

January 3, 2003 -- The first boxes of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's papers have arrived back into city custody, administration officials said yesterday.

Giuliani ignited a furor last year after he took the records to a private firm for archiving rather than leaving them in the city's possession.

But now, four boxes of the papers - which contain Giuliani's public appearances from 1994 up until 2001 - are in the city's archives after having been processed by the privately funded Rudolph W. Giuliani Center for Urban Affairs.

The boxes are just the first wave, and more Giuliani records are expected to be returned, officials said.

"It's been a pleasure working with the archivists at the Giuliani Center," said city Records and Information Commissioner Brian Andersson. "Their work thus far has been excellent."

The boxes returned yesterday include recordsof some unpublicized phone calls and meetings the former mayor held.
The records also mention parties he attended for members of the press corps, like an 88th birthday bash for the late Joey Adams, husband of Post columnist Cindy Adams and another birthday party for Gabe Pressman of WNBC-TV.
