James Campbell, the biographer of Baldwin, won a victory Tuesday, Dec. 29, 1998 in a 10–year court battle to obtain the FBI's files about the internationally known black writer. But it came late: the biography, ``Talking at the Gates: A Life of James Baldwin'' was published in 1991. (AP Photo/Los Angeles Times)
