A Record from Mary's Database


Who's Who in CIA, Mader, p. 318; The Great Heroin Coup, Kruger, p. 34; MMF 2146


"In 1947 the CIA was established, just at peak of France's political crisis. The center of unrest was Marseilles, where U.S. intelligence agents were already on the job. Jay Lovestone and Irving Brown, under cover of International Ladies Garment Workers Union, had infiltrated French trade unions and were handing out money left and right" (Kruger, p. 34) Alexander Rorke claimed Lovestone was "pro-socialist."

Search Tips

1. Type one or more words into a search box and hit Enter or click the Search button.
2. If you type multiple words, search results includes pages which feature any of the words (pages with multiple and rare words are ranked higher).
3. Use double-quotes to enclose phrases (consecutive words), e.g. "Jack Ruby".
4. Use "and" to find pages containing both word/phrase A and word/phrase B, e.g.: mccone and "maurice bishop".
5. Note that small words (the, by, on, etc.) are ignored.
6. Searches are not case-sensitive (e.g., KENNEDY is the same as kennedy).
