On May 12, 1994, a package containing 4000 pages of secret internal tobacco industry documents arrived at the office of Professor Stanton Glantz at the University of California. The return address said only “Mr. Butts”. The documents provide a shocking inside account of the activities of Brown and Williamson over 30 years. They are now collected in a book, called The Cigarette Papers.
