Also, a cable in October, 1968, stated that Cedric D. Bartilucci's true name was known to Duncan. Moreover, In June of 1973, Cedric D. Bartilucci was OGC of MHMUTUAL, and wrote a memo on a report from MHSAVVY on the Watergate scandal. Bartilucci had a (P) next to the name, which further indicated that Bartilucci was a pseudonym.

08/06/68: Cable from JMCOBRA to Director: Slugline TYPIC AMWIDE: "1. Station officers met with Mr. Duncan 5 and 6 August. We found him competent and self possessed in this primary field of interest, broadcasting. His interest and bent in politics were less discernible. On balance, we will be gambling that his obviously high innate intelligence can encompass development of a more fully articulate political sense. Whether or not he accepts the job (he promised to notify Mr. Sainen of his decision within the coming week) we will still require a non-US native Spanish speaking newsman as described Ref B. We will therefore review and expand appeal for such talent. 2. Mr. Duncan met following Station officers, ATT using aliases noted: Nebecker (Larry Staunton), Bartilucci (Andy Pierce), Launeaux (Ray Arnold), Copsiadas (Jim Lane), and Zeephat (John Kennington). He was paid $280.40 for air tickets and expenses."
