Unknown identity. In June of 1964 Nathaniel S. Aleccia wrote a memo on Manuel Ray Rivero's (AMBANG-1) failed infiltration mission into Cuba. Aleccia's sources were FBI New York agent, Frank O'Brien, and AMWRIT-1 in NYC.
A memo in December, 1965, mentioned that Aleccia had received a telephone call from AMWHIP-1 (Carlos Tepedino Gonzalez). In addition, a cable (probably sometime in 1966) stated that Rowton and Aleccia would likely be used to make contact with Julian Lopez Diaz. Furthermore, Aleccia was listed with Medbery in an operation, on the LIRANCH expenditures as of January 1, 1967. Moreover, in June of 1967 Nathaniel S. Aleccia either signed a dispatch as Chief, WH Division, or in the name of the Chief. The subject of the dispatch was Cuban traces on LIRING-3 (Carlos Jurado-Delmar).

12/23/65: Memorandum for the record from Nathaniel S. Aleccia: Date: 22 December 1965, 1630 hours: "1. A-1 telephoned to inform that Marta Jimenez, Cuban representative to the UN General Assembly is departing the U.S. for Cuba via Nassau, Bahamas on 23 December 1965. 2. Prior to her departure, Jimenez put Oscar Gutierrez and (FNU) Omero, members of the Cuban delegation to the UN in touch with A-1 as she (Jimenez) had left a box of cigars for A-1. Also, before her departure, Jimenez told A-1 that she had some excess baggage but did not have any money to pay for it, so A-1 met with her and advanced her $35,00 to cover the extra expense. A-1 in turn gave Jimenez some jewelry to take with her into Cuba for his friend Cubela. 3. A-1 is departing for the Miami area on 26 December 1965 and will return to New York on 3 January 1966 in time for our meeting. Nathaniel S. Aleccia."
