Pseudonym: Brickham, Tad

Return to Main Pseudos Page

Tad Brickham was an alias used by Andrew K. Reuteman. Andrew Reuteman was a pseudonym used by Theodore (Ted) Shackley, CIA officer and Chief of Station, JMWAVE, between 1962 and 1965.
Brickham was the Technical Services Division (TSD) alias birth certificate for Shackley.

A memo from Erich W. Isenstead on November 2, 1973, on Howard Hunt, contained a numbered list of true names, along with a corresponding TSD alias birth certificate list. Most of the alias birth certificates were issued in connection with the Bay of Pigs operation. Theodore Shackley was number 25 and his alias of Tad S. Brickham was number 25.

Also included were Donald R. Heath/alias Charles Andrew Faron (number 49), David S. Morales/alias Diego S. Miranda (number 108), Robert B. Moore/alias Henry Franklin Polacek (number 118), and William K. Harvey/alias William Walker (number 161).

11/02/73: Memo from Erich W. Isenstead, Chief, Cover & Commercial Staff to Acting General Counsel: Subject: Mr. E. Howard Hunt - Alias Birth Documentation: ..."3. Later in the afternoon of 30 October 1973 Mr. Franklin came to my office with a number of documents. They consisted of a form memorandum signed by me which was addressed to Mr. Hunt dated 29 June 1970 (Tab B), a list of names numbering from 1 through 154, representing true names (Tab C), and a second listing similarly numbered, representing aliases (Tab D). Number 63 on the true name list reads E. Howard Hunt and on the alias list, Edward Joseph Hamilton. Mr. Franklin explained - which I had forgotten - that we had obtained from TSD this list of outstanding alias birth certificates issued by TSD in an attempt to recall - if possible - as many of these documents, or to determine what had happened to them. (Most of these alias birth certificates were issued in connection with the Bay of Pigs operation)..."

..."Nobody in the Agency talked about David Morales and nobody outside the Agency was even supposed to know that name. Of course, Morales was known to people like William Harvey and John Roselli through his operational support of the highly compartmentalized Castro assassination missions. He was known to his boss, Ted Shackley (who locally in Miami was known only by his own crypt, 'Andrew K. Reuteman' or alias Tad Brickham). Morales would have been known to Angleton, through his counter intelligence assignments and the formation of the AMOTs. But beyond that, he was truly a shadow warrior - with one exception..."
