Deep Throat Uncovered

At a 2003 conference held at the legendary Watergate complex in Washington DC, Professor Bill Gaines of the University of Illinois announced that, after four years, he and his journalism students had concluded that Fred Fielding (former assistant to President Nixon) was the legendary "Deep Throat" who provided information about the Watergate break-in that led to the downfall of President Nixon. While Fielding has not spoken publicly about this declaration by Professor Gaines, many people are convinced that Gaines and his students may be correct. This site contains a great deal of material related to the investigation conducted by Gaines and his students over the past four years, including information about the documents they reviewed, various media responses to their findings, a brief synopsis about the Watergate scandal, and the clues that led the students to Fielding.
