Interesting History

http://edition.cnn.com/2008/US/08/14/spies.revealed.ap/index.html

This really isn’t anything new, as Julia Childs had mentioned her involvement in the OSS when she was still alive.  While she kept details to herself, her name appearing on the list of OSS operatives is no surprise.  What will be interesting is to see what duties and assignments these people had during their involvement.

I already knew about Moe Berg, the baseball player.  It is widely known that while US MLB players were touring Japan in the 30’s, Berg was assigned to make notes, and take pictures of interest to the US government.  Due to his “celebrity” status, and his role as a professional athlete, Berg was accounted a greater degree of access than most people would have received.

This should prove to be interesting reading once all the records are released by the National Archives.
