Status:
Documented
Discussion:
A CIA document in July of 1963 stated that Henry Boysen was Henry Hecksher. A memo for the record from Raul Hernandez in December, 1963, also noted this.

Hecksher also used the pseudonyms of Nelson L. Raynock and James E. Beckhoff.

Henry Hecksher also probably used the pseudonym of Graham L. Page during the late 1940's and 1950's, particularly during Operation PBSUCCESS (project to overthrow - "without bloodshed, if possible" - the Arbenz government in Guatemala in 1954).
