Subject; Civilian personnel Spaces to Accommodate the PAPERCLIP and PROJECT 63 Programs.
1.The Department of Defense has two classified projects, deemed of utmost importance, that result in the employment and exploitation of foreign scientists by the Department;
A. The first, Paperclip, provides a means of obtaining services of foreign specialists for specific assignments within the technical services of the Departments of Army, Navy and Air Force. The primary function of this program is the utilization of the individual, the denial aspect being a highly desirable, although secondary feature. Such specialties sign a year's contract for a specific assignment prior to leaving their place of residence.
B. PROJECT 63 is primary a denial
program with utilization as a desirable feature. The aim of this
program is to
secure employment in the United States of certain prominent German and
specialists, thus denying their services to potential enemies. Such
sign a six month Department of Defense contract, which guarantees them
income until permanent employment is arranged with Department of
Agencies or industry within the United States. Project
Overcast, later renamed Project Paperclip, was the
program set up in 1945 by the War Department to locate, recruit and
to the United States hundreds of Nazi scientists, specialist in
biological warfare, aviation medicine, wind tunnels and the like.
With grotesque irony, Schreiber’s role in Texas was consultant to the ‘global preventative medicine” division. In March 1952, after Schreiber’s presence in the U.S. had been discovered by columnist Drew Pearson, his continuing work for the American military was defended by Air Force General Robert Eaton; “Doctor Schreiber was hired by the Air Force because of his extensive experience in the field of epidemiology and military preventive medicine, coupled with his peculiar knowledge of public health and sanitation problems in certain geographical areas. He has collaborated in the preparation of a treatise on the epidemiology of air travel and has been able to furnish the Air Force with valuable information.” Apparently, due to the embarrassment and controversy resulting from public exposure of their collaboration with Schreiber, Project Paperclip Officers generously found similar work for him in Argentina and flew him there on May 22, 1952. Another of the hundreds of Nazi war criminals with whom the U.S. joined forces with, was Major General Kurt Blome. Some of the Nuremberg charges against him included; 1.Wholesale practice of euthanasia by injecting intravenous undiluted lethal phenol. 2.Executions of tubercular Polish prisoners. 3.Various uses of biological warfare, his specialty. He admitted to U.S. Army interrogators in July 1945 that he had conducted experiments on these victims with plaque vaccine, on orders of the notorious mass murderer, Heinrich Himmler. Incredibly, Blome was acquitted by the Nuremberg tribunal, though the prosecutors had gathered a great deal of evidence about his activities. Just two months after his acquittal, he was contracted by four employees of the Army Chemical Corps at Camp Detrick for a discussion about biological warfare. Blome cooperated and also volunteered the names of the other German biological warfare specialist. In August 1951 he signed a “Project 63” contract as the camp doctor at the U.S. Army occupation force European Command Intelligence Center at Oberusal. A subsequent Defense Department contractual document shows the following entry under the heading of Qualification; “Professor of medicine (sic) with emphasis on research of tuberculosis and cancer and biological warfare.” One of the lesser known Nazi doctors, Hubertus Stughold, a Luftwaffe member, was reportedly knowledgeable about the deadly low pressure chamber experiments whether he came to the U.S. as part of Paperclip or 63, he worked for the U.S. Air Force for many years and is still living. Today at Brooks Air Force Base near San Antonio, Texas is the Hubertus Strughold Aeromedical Library; named after the man they fondly call “the father of aerospace medicine.” Pg. 26, Covert Action, issue 25, 1986Blowback.
