Jason Saltoun-Ebin 

Jason Saltoun-Ebin has been researching the Reagan Administration since 2001 when he was hired as a research assistant by Richard Reeves to conduct archival research for his biography, President Reagan: The Triumph of Imagination.

Believing that many documents held at the Reagan Library were simply too important to just be kept in an archive, Mr. Saltoun-Ebin created www.thereaganfiles.com in 2009 to encourage the further study of the Reagan Administration. In 2010, he self-published The Reagan Files: The Untold Story of Reagan’s Top-Secret Efforts to Win the Cold War (Based on over 100 recently declassified documents at the Reagan Library),  followed by The Reagan Files: Inside the National Security Council, (2012) and Dear Mr. President…Reagan/Gorbachev and the Correspondence that Ended the Cold War (2013).

Mr. Saltoun-Ebin is a proud graduate of U.C.L.A (B.A., Eurpean Studies)., the University of Wisconsin Law School (Juris Doctorate),UCSB (M.A., U.S. History) and is a member of the State Bars of California and Wisconsin. He resides in Santa Barbara, California with his wife, attorney Jessica Zetley, and their three kids. 

Since creating www.thereaganfiles.com in 2009, he has made freely available more than 100,000 pages of documents from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and other archives. Most of the documents have been published here for the first time and were released in response to FOIA requests filed by Mr. Saltoun-Ebin and Mr. Reeves.
