Cryptonym: AMHINT-29

Definition:
Luis Cowan Fernandez. A cable in September of 1961 stated that Luis Cowan Fernandez was AMHINT-29. However, he may only have had this crypt a short time, as the cable mentioned that the crypts would be assigned after completion of training (he possibly only had this crypt provisionally).
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
Luis Cowan Fernandez was granted a POA on August 8, 1961. His PDOB was given as 10 January, 1943, in Havana. His father was called Carlos and his mother was named Maria de Jesus. A 1966 document on the DRE stated that Luis Cowan Fernandez was a mechanical engineer student, who worked at the Florida Steel Corporation, and was a delegate in Tampa.
