03/09/60: Memo for the record: Titled: Status Report: "In November 1959 Cover Branch assisted SR/DOB Case Officer Fred Kirkpatrick in formulating cover under which AESENTINEL agent AEASPIC (David Tzitzichvili) could live and thus be released from 24-hour custody. AEASPIC was documented under the name David Durvard and was so registered by Alien Affairs Staff. AEASPIC carries a cover letter issued by Alien Affairs to this effect. SR/DOB Case Officer Fred Kirkpatrick was documented (see below) under the name Fred K. Komer, a self-employed manufacturer's representative, presently engaged with David Durvard, in adapting certain American automatic coin-operated vending machines to the French market, in particular in the Paris area. Mr. Durvard is serving as Mr. Komer's engineer/technical advisor. This arrangement has to date worked entirely satisfactorily, and it is hoped will continue to function until about mid-June, when aforementioned cover arrangement should be discontinued owing to resumption of operational training. For further information, please contact Fred Kirkpatrick on Ext. 8331."
