Reagan Records Released: Help Us Dig Through Them

President Barack Obama is releasing nearly 250,000 pages of records from the Reagan White House that have been kept private till this point. The move, directed by White House Counsel Greg Craig, comes after open-government advocates and academics had lobbied heavily for the documents to be made public during George W. Bush's administration.

The move creates a welcome challenge for HuffPost's ace volunteer research team -- our readers. If you'd like to help us search through the Reagan files to locate any newsworthy information, click here to sign up. We'll alert you as soon as the documents are available on the web so you can start digging.
