Unknown identity. A document in July of 1957 on Harold R. Noemayr (Ross Crozier) mentioned that he had been in social contact with Oliver R. Bynam, C/WH/3/Mexico.
Three dispatches in June and July, 1959, were signed by Bynam, either as Chief of Station (COS), La Paz, or someone working under the COS. The dispatch on June 16, 1959, stated that Bynam was the case officer of KIAMBROSIA-29 (Lydia Duran).

A dispatch from COS, Kingston, in March of 1963 was signed by Oliver R. Bynam. Therefore, Bynam was either COS or someone who worked under the COS.
