Definition:
Probably Christopher D. Costanzo, WH/1, the Originating Officer for the dispatches which were signed by Eugene P. Tanguist. It is unclear whether Costanzo was a real name.
Category:
pseudonym
Status:
Probable
Discussion:
Jack Kaufman, J. Fisher and Thomas Flores also signed dispatches under Tanguist's name, but Costanzo's name appeared in all of the available ones. Costanzo was also the Originating Officer for a for Green List request for Victor Rico Galan in August of 1966.

If Costanzo was a real name then he probably worked with Andrew F. Merton (probably Jack Stewart), in providing the rolls of film to JMWAVE in 1966. See 104-10188-10016, pp. 70 & 72.
