Definition:
Probably Louise Lyon, SR/CI/RED. Dispatches on May 18 and 25th, and September 10, 1962, from Chief, SR, were signed in the name of Doris M. Killgo, with Lyon being the Originating Officer.

Probable
Discussion:
The dispatch on May 18, 1962, was signed by Stephen Roll, Chief/SR/CI/RED, as a Coordinating Officer. The dispatch on May 25, 1962, and the dispatch in September 10, 1962, both also had Stephen Roll as a Coordinating Officer.

A dispatch in February of 1959 mentioned that Doris M. Killgo provided operational supervision of LIEMPTY-3's (business associate of Guillermo Salazar Polanco) activities in Mexico City. Ann Goodpasture's notes in February of 1977 stated that Louise Lyon (retired) worked on the Soviet target in Mexico City from June of 1957 to October of 1959. Therefore, Doris Killgo was probably a pseudonym for Louise Lyon.

02/04/59: Dispatch from COS, Mexico City to Chief, WH Division: Subject: LIEMPTY Progress Report - July Thru Dec 1958: Page 3: ..."I. LIEMPTY/3 - Scantling (Juan Nepomuseno Frias Ramirez - LIEMPTY-2) handles the administrative matters connected with L/3. Doris M. Killgo provides operational direction to L/3. During this reporting period, the Station had hopes of Scantling taking over the operational supervision of L/3's activities. However, after a four-month trial period with both Scantling and Killgo meeting with L/3, it was decided that it would be desirable for Killgo to continue handling L/3. L/3's unusual personality and intellect indicated he could best be directed by a PBPRIME (U.S.) citizen. Therefore, Scantling no longer attends Killgo's and L/3's operational meetings, although he does continue to handle L/3's administrative problems..."

104-10439-10029: QUESTIONS CONCERNING DEFECTORS JOSEPH J. DUTKANICZ (201-289236) AND VLADIMIR O. SLOBODA (201-287527)

03/28/62: Memo for the record from Louise Lyon, SR/CI/RED: Subject: JAGUAR Request for Questions to be used in interview with Mrs. Lilian Sloboda, wife of American defector Vladimir Sloboda: "1. LOND 4883 (IN 47926) of 23 March 1962 regarding the Subject was discussed with Mr. James Hunt, DC/CI on 27 March 1962. He was asked if the Army had been advised of BEVISION's (probably the Project using the Polish defector Michal Goleniewski) identification of Sloboda as a KGB agent (YT-1192, 16 January 1962) and if this information should be passed to JAGUAR (MI-5). Mr. Hunt said that the Army was somewhat embarrassed about this case since Sloboda had 'flunked 4 or 5 LCFLUTTER (polygraph -"lie detector" - testing) examinations' before his defection, so the information had not been passed to the Army. As noted in YT-1192, Sloboda was not particularly important, according to BEVISION, and Hunt believed the army assumed he was an RIS agent when he went over the hill. 2. Mr. Hunt saw no reason to give the information to JAGUAR but suggested that in our cable we say Sloboda was presumed RIS. 3. The Polish Desk said that BEVISION is currently being interrogated by the Army and they probably will ask him questions about Sloboda."
