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.
