Some key documents
1988 Oct 17: Jim Savarese, a favoured consultant to the Tobacco Institute, writes to Fred Panzer about their new Ad-ban project.
I have attached a list of some of the lawyers who participated in the Ad Ban campaign in February 1987. These are the ones I would recommend to use again, but remember we haven't contacted these people since 1987 so I don't know if they are still available or still at the same schools. We should also try to find a couple for the Northeast Area.
He lists 14 tame lawyers who wrote articles for them in 1987, and among the list was Minnesota, David A Reese This article was not published in the MN Star & Tribune. Probably because the newspaper woke up to the Tobacco Institute's flood of op-ed articles opposing the proposed cigarette advertising bans.
