06/22/54: Dispatch from the COS, Withheld to Operation PBSUCCESS Headquarters in Florida: Subject: General-Operational. Specific: Memo by ODACID Chief in re: General Miguel Ydigoras Fuentes: "1. The text below represents a memorandum dated 18 June 1954 from the local ODACID (U.S. State Department) Chief: 'The Honduran Ambassador told me President Osorio is somewhat cold to General Ydigoras Fuentes. He said that nevertheless, he and the Foreign Minister, Robert Canessa, are working on the President to obtain his backing for Ydigoras as they believe the latter to have sufficient popular support within Guatemala to head a possible government and to be the legal successor to the Presidency because Ydigoras polled a large number of votes despite the fact that he had to make a presidential campaign while in hiding. 'The Chief of Protocol, Ambassador Alvarez Vidaurre, said he personally believed Ydigoras to be intelligent and enterprising but that there were many people here who felt that he was more of a talker than a doer.' Franklin D. Mallek."
