Undated CIA document: Page 3: ..."Aliases: Edward J. Hamilton. Date Assigned: 20 Sept. 1960. Not assigned to IP/CR-registered above date. WH/CR has the name listed also Eduardo J. Hamilton. Both of the above aliases cancelled-retired (individual 30 Apr. 1970)."


06/28/72, CIA report from Howard Osborn, Director of Security: ..."Everette Howard Hunt, Jr.: Much of the publicity on the case centered on Mr. Everette Howard Hunt, Jr., a White House Consultant who formerly served as a CIA Staff Employee from 1949 to 1970. Mr. Hunt was initially interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the evening of 17 June 1972, but he refused to discuss details of his involvement on Constitutional grounds. Information has now developed which indicates that in 1960 he had a documented alias in the name of Edward V. Hamilton; he used the name Edward J. Hamilton in 1963; and in 1968-70, he was seriously considering the publication of a book under the name of Edward J. Hamilton. Recent news articles indicate that Mr. Frank Anthony Sturgis had registered at the Watergate and gave the police the name of 'Edward Hamilton' at the time of his arrest. As of 27 June 1972, the Federal Bureau of Investigation gave indications that the whereabouts of Mr. Hunt is unknown. The Bureau is checking on Mr. Hunt's handwriting."
