The press release includes two reports dated March 31, 1986 and April 30, 1986 on South African investments in the Consolidated Endowment Fund; companies mentioned in those reports include Merrill Lynch, Sears, Boeing, Abbott, Eli Lilly, AMR, Gillette, Martin-Marietta, IBM, and Marsh & McClennan. The press release includes a letter from Lloyd W. Paterson, Deputy Attorney General to the National Lawyers Guild - University of Washington Chapter. It also includes letters to Deputy Attorney General Lloyd W. Paterson from Virginia L. Faller and Alan Marriner of the National Lawyers Guild-U.W and from Phillip Goldman of Students Against Apartheid. The press release includes a newspaper article "State AG office: SAA charges unfounded" by Mark Jewell.
