This dispatch was to be brought to the attention of Graham L. Page (probably Henry D. Hecksher) of the K-Program. In addition, a dispatch on REDCAP/Soviet Embassy Personnel, in June of 1956, was signed by Braddock for the Chief of Station, Mexico City. Furthermore, a cable in September, 1957, stated that Gene F. Braddock was to depart (REDACTION) location on around October 1st for home leave and training. Braddock prepared reports on travel (REDACTION) personnel and related (REDACTION) matters. The cable requested the services of a clerk stenographer for 90 days TDY as a replacement for Braddock. The clerk would also assist in the preparation of LIFEAT reports, and it was preferable that the individual had Soviet Russia (SR) Division training. Moreover, CIA documents in 1958 and 1959 on the LIFEAT Project in Mexico City mentioned that Gene F. Braddock was the Assistant Case Officer (the Case Officer was Edward P. Sechen). Also, a dispatch in August of 1967 from Mexico City was signed by Braddock for Willard C. Curtis (pseudonym for COS, Mexico City, Winston M. Scott).
