Reporter with Ft. Worth Star Telegram. His picture in Vol 26, p. 666, was erroneously thought to be Jack Ruby - see WC Vol 26, p. 665. WALDO arrived in Spain from Mexico City in late July 1967 and called on Embassy asking for Public Affairs Officer who had known him slightly in Argentina in 1959 and 1960. At first WALDO claimed to be representing several American newspapers in Latin America - Denver Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Tucson Citizen, Louisville Courier and Milwaukee Journal. On second visit, WALDO "confessed" he was working for Ramparts Magazine. CIA requested pertinent traces.

Search Tips

1. Enter multiple words to find pages with any of those words on them (e.g., Roselli Rosselli).
2. Put multiple words inside double-quotes to search for exact phrase (e.g., "single bullet theory").
3. Separate words or quoted phrases by AND to find only pages featuring both words or phrases (e.g., Khrushchev AND Castro). Make sure to use upper-case AND.
4. Searches are not case-sensitive (e.g., KENNEDY is the same as kennedy).
