Appearing at news conferences to give updates on Nixons condition, Dr. Lundgren was the man-in-the-middle, in the dispute over Nixons ability to travel to Washington to testify at the Watergate cover-up trial of his former aides, H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, and the former attorney-general John Mitchell. (Dr. Lundgren kept the Nixon medical records in a doubly locked safe a few steps from his office at Long Beach Memorial Hospital: in September 1972, in the height of the presidential campaign, the safe was twice rifled, and Nixons records were found out on the floor. The FBI concluded they had been xeroxed, but the case was never solved.) Shortly before his death, Nixon gave his doctor full legal permission to write about his medical care and their friendship, and Lundgren used his records for a draft that was being considered for publication at the time of his own death. A specialist in internal medicine and cardiology, he had served as chief of staff at Long Beach Memorial.
