104-10122-10367: REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OR INVESTIGATIVE ACTION

10/22/63 request for approval or investigative action from CA/PAG Edward Dunn to Security Support Division/Office of Security regarding Edward K. Moss, "ZRMAJOR advisor in the public relations field".

104-10122-10399: MEMO RE EDWARD MOSS

11/7/62 was the date that a Covert Security Approval was given to Edward K. Moss pursuant to Project ZRMAJOR.

180-10145-10210: [No Title]

The Office of Security file includes a number of items for Edward Moss, including references to merging his business with Howard Chase Associates, Inc. and its subsidiary Chase & Moss in 1960; they agreed to de-merge in 1961, a process that took three years. A covert security approval (CSA) on 11/7/62 enabled Moss' use by the Political Action Group of the Covert Action staff. On 11/30/62, the Political Action Group/Covert Action staff wrote a memo requesting any objections to the use of Moss as a public relations adviser related to the ZRMAJOR project.
