Didn't Black just use corporate funds to purchase the papers of his hero, FDR?

Black considers himself a student of history and bought FDR's papers for $8 million.
SEC filings indicate they were paid for by Black's company, Hollinger, as investments.

Black recently promoted his just-released book, the massive, “Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Champion of Freedom,” that he penned on his offtime. When Black tried to talk up FDR’s New Deal, the only deals people wanted to know about were those he cut with Hollinger.

It just gets better by the day. I wonder if by 2005 the Mutual Fund industry will finally take it's rightful place in history like the old "holding companies" we all knew and loved from the past.

I read the book review that a National Review writer did on Black's tome, and they were nearly merciless.
