Discussion:
A memo by Bickelhaupt in February, 1963, gave an account of meetings between the former and AMWOO-1 (probably Jose Enrique Dausa Alvarez). As it was a contact report then it is possible that Bickelhaupt was the case officer of AMWOO-1 at this time.

According to a cable on March 12, 1966, Bickelhaupt was the case officer of AMHAM-1 (Juan Felaifel Canahan) from December, 1963, to July, 1964. The cable also noted that Horace D. Bickelhaupt, "remembered AMHAM-1 as hard working, conscientious and added that only misgivings he had were ODENVY (FBI) allegations which resolved to C/O's satisfaction following talks with and assessment by AMWOO/1 (probably Jose Enrique Dausa Alvarez) in spring 64."
