The Presley Commission and The Elvis is Alive Museum in Missouri are happy to announce that assorted files and 2915 pages of FBI documents on Elvis Presley are now on display at the museum in Wright City, Missouri. This past Saturday, Phil Aitcheson, the former director of the Presley Commission delivered the files and the FBI pages to the museum to formally end the commission's investigation of the "Elvis Alive" case, and turning over any other collection of documentation to the Elvis is Alive Museum.
Aitcheson and Beeny state that now Elvis fans from all over the world can venture to Wright City, enter the museum, free of charge (no admission), and see the files on display. It is a fantastic opportunity for the fans to see files that have never before been released to the public, and it took the commission 5 years to obtain the 2915 pages, now available under The Freedom of Information/Privacy Act guidelines.
The action to donate the files comes in the wake of the announcement that the book "The Presley Alternative" written by Aitcheson/Wines will be released sometime by mid year 2006.
The book will detail the process that was executed or Elvis to depart public view and outline the events and evidence that support it. Many other items will appear in the book again never published before, particularly a focus on Elvis' other professional involvments.
