pseudonym
Status:
Speculative
Discussion:
On four dispatches from Chief, Western Hemisphere Division (WHD), that Colleary signed, Ullery was the Originating Officer. In addition, R. Ortman, as a Coordinating Officer, appeared in the four dispatches. However, the real name of whoever signed the dispatch was usually that of the Originating Officer or Releasing Officer. Therefore, Howard R. Colleary was possibly Wendell Ullery. Ullery was probably a pseudonym for Gabe Lowe.
