Giles E. Corrigan was the Reporting and Approval Officer according to a Report Cover Sheet in February of 1968. Probably the same Corrigan was mentioned in cables in 1961. A cable on March 21, 1961, originated by Gerald Droller, mentioned that Corrigan would be available in New York City for Licari (Willard Carr). In addition, a cable on March 31, 1961, from Anthony Ponchay (Jake Esterline), stated that ERACERB-1's request put pressure on Corrigan, and, therefore, "must recommend strongly against meeting at this time however." Moreover, a cable on April 22, 1961, originated by E. A. Stanulis, stated that it was "urgent Corrigan contact President Somoza and obtain his approval for this visit. Cable result of meeting by flash precedence." Furthermore, a cable in September 1964 reported Corrigan's account of a briefing from Langosch (Harold F. Swenson).
