07/14/54: Memo from Frank G. Wisner, Deputy Director (Plans) to Kermit Roosevelt (Attention: John Baker): "1. To those of us at Headquarters who have followed closely the work of Mr. Phillips in connection with PBSUCCESS, it is completely evident that he made one of the major and most outstanding contributions to this Operation and that he has demonstrated himself to be exceptionally qualified in the field of political and psychological operations (covert). I have just been informed by Messrs. Barnes and Phillips that the latter, who has heretofore been employed in the capacity of a Contract Agent, desires to become more closely associated with the Agency and would like to be employed as a regular staff officer. I am very much in favor of following up on this opportunity, and I have good reason to believe that the Director likewise is specifically interested..." - - - Page 5: 01/14/52: Security Information: Subject: JG - 8142.

11/12/54: Memo from Robert H. Cunningham, Chief Special Security Division to Chief, Psychological & Paramilitary Operations Staff (Attn: Miss REDACTION, Room 1412 K Building): Subject: Nadleman, John D. (P) #40696: "1. Reference is made to your memorandum dated 5 November 1954 requesting the permission be granted by this office so that the Subject may take several training courses to be held in Building T-30 over the period from 15 November 1954 to 17 December 1954. 2. This is to advise that although this office interposes no security objection to Subject taking the proposed training to be held in Building T-30, it is felt from a security standpoint that Subject's presence at such courses may well create a security hazard that might make it inadvisable to use Subject in sensitive operational activities in the future. 3. For your information, Mr. John W. Belt, Security Office, Office of Training, has been orally advised of the decision of this office in this matter."
