The following table lists Dr. McManamon's known contacts with
White House staff. It consists of those contacts that plaintiffs
were able to find in defendants' administrative record and may
not be complete. See end of table for text of footnotes.

1 The administrative record also indicates
that at least three other meetings (10/20/97, 11/3/97 and 11/7/97)
were held between White House staff and defendants' interagency
task force for Kennewick Man. See references in COE 0002504-0002505
and DOI 02002-02005. It cannot be determined from these documents
whether Dr. McManamon also attended these three other meetings,
and therefore they are not listed in the table. These documents
also indicate that at least two other meetings of defendants'
interagency task force were held on 11/4/97 and 11/6/97. Dr.
McManamon participated in the 11/6/97 meeting by telephone.
