Dear Ms. Dorsey,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS) have very few photographs from Federal Bureau of Investigation Reports. The photograph may be in the FBI case files and that particular case file may be the custody of the National Archives (NARA). However, NARA will need to perform a search, then review the records prior to release. FBI case files have significant access restrictions.
To initiate this review, you will need to submit a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Archives, providing the case file numbers. FBI records are arranged by case number; they are not name or subject searchable. With the case numbers, NARA then will be able to verify if a file is in our custody and available for access. FBI case file designators typically are in the form of ##-AA-####. This is the number that NARA requires to access FBI records. You may submit your FOIA request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
