University of Texas Buys Watergate Papers

“In one of the largest such purchases in American history, the University of Texas at Austin has bought the Watergate papers of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein for $5 million, the university announced today… As part of the extraordinary deal to purchase the materials, the university agreed to honor Woodward and Bernstein’s long-standing commitment to protect the identity of a number of confidential sources until their deaths, including ‘Deep Throat,’ the Nixon administration official whose deep-background information was crucial to The Post’s pursuit of the Watergate story.”
