Pseudonym: Higby, David C.
According to a memo in August of 1975, Warren was the Acting Chief, Latin American Division. Also, Raymond Warren was Chief, Latin American Division, from at least August of 1976 to August of 1978. Therefore, it is possible that Warren was David C. Higby. However, the possibility exists that it was another CIA officer who only held the position of Chief, Latin American Division, and Chief, Western Hemisphere Division, for a very short period of time.
03/07/60: Dispatch from Chief of Base, Sao Paulo to Chief, SR (Info: Chief, WHD; COS, Rio De Janeiro): Subject: REDWOOD/AEACRE Accommodation Address: "In connection with paragraph 2 of reference, effective immediately it is requested that letters sent to Timothy K. Rancifer for insertion in the local mail system be sent instead to the following address: (REDACTION). (Signature) David C. Higby."
04/06/73: Cable from Withheld to Director: Slugline KDACETONE: ..."2. Again recommend that WOMACE host lunch and that WOGULF and WOHORN Latin American people attend. Think Reutemand (Theodore/Ted Shackley) would enjoy hearing their views and feel Higby would profit from meeting these people. They are limited but useful contacts. Attendees are as listed in Attachment to HMMA-41,802 with following changes..."
05/11/73: Dispatch from Chief, WH Division to COS, Withheld: Subject: Operational Meeting with KDACETONE-1: "1. In accordance with a policy decision to keep BKHERALD contact with U.S. business representatives discreet, a small luncheon was held in lieu of the customary formal briefings in the Headquarters building. KDACETONE-1, IDENTITY 1, and David C. Higby and Floyd N. Aimonet attended the luncheon which was characterized by cordiality and candor. KDACETONE-1 waited until the conclusion of the meeting to raise his current favorite subject, that of countering the leftist propaganda contained in SIEMPRE. Fortunately, Higby was forewarned and effectively turned around the threat of the effort upon KDACETONE-1's shoulders, without offending him. IDENTITY impressed Higby with his interest, intelligence and sincerity. He offered the services of IDENTITY 2 to 'do things' on our behalf but was convinced by Higby that the best way to approach the problem was through the compartmented use of individual members, rather than through IDENTITY 2 as an organization. 2. Discussions were held concerning Mexican affairs as well as Hemispheric trends. In the former category, our guests were most disturbed about the nationalization process in Mexico and enumerated the latest cases with some alarm. KDACETONE-1 repeated his prediction that President Echeverria would effectively nationalize most private investment in Mexico before the end of his term. 3. The meeting was judged effective and afforded Higby the opportunity to lay the ground work for his future relations with IDENTITY 2 members, while satisfying the guests' need for reassurances that our goals were parallel. They appeared happy with the conversations despite the informality." On Page 3 both IDENTITIES 1 and 2 are redacted. Originating Officer: (REDACTION), DC/WH/1. Releasing Officer: John C. Murray, C/WH/1.
Inside the Company, CIA Diary (1975) by Philip Agee: Page 503: ..."London October 1973: I hurry to finish, now more confident than ever that I really will see this project to the end. The coup in Chile, terrible as it is, has been like a spur for even faster work. Signs of preparations for the coup were clear all along. While economic assistance to Chile plummeted after Allende's election, military aid continued: in 1972 military aid to the Chilean generals and admirals was the highest to any country in Latin America; the growth of the CIA station since 1970 under the Chief of Station, Ray Warren; the murder of General Schneider; the militancy of well-heeled 'patriotic' organizations such as Patria y Libertad; the economic sabotage; the truckers' strike of 1972 with the famous 'dollar-per-day' to keep the strikers from working; and the truckers' strike of this past June — both strikes probably were financed by the CIA, perhaps through the International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF), perhaps through the AIFLD which had already trained some 9000 Chilean workers. Perhaps through Brazil. So many possible ways. Finally the Plan Z: so like our Flores document in Quito, our evidence against the Soviets in Montevideo, so typical of CIA black documents..."
