Discussion:
A FBI document in April of 1968 stated that Paul Henze was the COS, Miami. In addition, Bill Sturbitts in testimony in 1975 stated that "I think Paul was there about a year and a half. He left in 1968 when we reduced the size of the Station. Let's say Henze was there from 1966 to 1968."
