FOIA The Dead

Sammy Lee

Sammy Lee was the first Asian-American man to win an Olympic gold medal for the United States. He subsequently worked as a doctor and coach, and was honored by six U.S. presidents. In 1990, he was appointed to the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sport, and his FBI file mostly pertains to the background check required for that position.
