The Story Behind the Stories

Project Supporters

The Brechner Center for Freedom of Information was able to conduct the "Story Behind the Stories" project as a result of a generous grant by Mrs. Marion B. Brechner, the wife of the late Jospeh L. Brechner (1915-1990), who was an Orlando broadcaster and freedom of information advocate.

In 1986, Mr. Brechner provided more than $1 million to fund an eminent scholar endowment, construct a suite of offices, and enlarge the operational endowment of the then Information Clearing House. The Clearing House was renamed The Jospeh L. Brechner Center for Freedom of Information to honor Mr. Brechner's contributions to freedom of information.

Mrs. Brechner has continued to support freedom of information efforts, and, with her most recent gift, funded the "Story Behind the Stories" project.
