Scope and Contents of the Materials

A volunteer in the Spanish Civil War from 1937 through most of 1938, serving first as a machine gunner and later an ambulance driver. Not long after the December 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, he was one of the half dozen American veterans of the Spanish Civil War to be recruited for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA. His experiences in Spain included guerilla warfare and familiarity with current German and Italian military equipment and field strategy. Strong anti-fascist loyalties made him an ideal candidate for the new American intelligence service.
