It has been claimed that three prostitutes who had links with the KGB were involved with JFK between 1959 and 1963: Ellen Rometsch, Maria Novotny and Suzy Chang. I have written about Rometsch and Novotny on other threads. This thread is for Suzy Chang.

FBI files show that Suzy Chang was really Esther Sue Yan Chang. The daughter of two Chinese immigrants, she was born in New York in 1934. She adopted the name Suzy Chang and by the late 1950s was working in London. During this period she got to know Stephen Ward, Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies.

In 1959 Chang travelled to the United States with Maria Novotny. Both women worked at the Quorum Club in Washington, run by Bobby Baker, and became involved in relationships with leading politicians. This included both John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. Recently released FBI files claim that Stephen Ward was involved in supplying these girls. The FBI investigation also suggested that a "Hungarian madam in New York" was also involved in what was called the "Bowtie" case.

Suzy Chang, who later adopted the name Suzy Diamond, went onto marry three wealthy husbands. In 1999 she gave an interview where she confessed to having a relationship with John F. Kennedy. However, she denied she was a prostitute. She also admitted to knowing Stephen Ward, Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, but insisted that Ward was not a pimp.

The FBI file Bowtie also reflects that Suzy a/k/a Susie whose real name was Esther, was born Nov. 23, 1945 and that her mother became a naturalized U.S. citizen in Delaware on Dec. 18, 1961. She filed a petition for her daughter on April 3, 1962 in Philadelphia for "a second preference visa under the Chinese quota for her daughter Esther. The mother was represented, in connection with this petition, by the New York City law firm of Donovan, Leisure and Irvin [sic]." The FBI was quoting information obtained from the Immigration and Naturalization Service officer Carl Burrows.

Note, the software for the Forum does not allow me to attach the first page of the document in this note.

What the FBI document fails to address is the fact that the senior partner of the law firm mentioned was William Joseph Donovan, who founded the firm in 1929, a decade before he was selected to head the OSS, but that he had died in 1959. A later Director of the CIA, William E. Colby, had been, as his first job out of law school in 1947, an associate attorney for Donovan, Leisure, Newton, & Irvine, when it was headed by Wild Bill Donovan, the OSS director during World War II, under whom Colby had served with the OSS. In early 1951 Colby left the firm, ostensibly to join the Department of State's Foreign Service, and inn October 1953 he was transferred from Sweden to Rome, Italy. In 1958 he spent a few months as a desk officer in Washington, D.C. but was assigned to Saigon in January 1959 where he was a "Special Assistant to the U.S. Ambassador. Elbridge Durbrow was there from 1957 until 1961 and replaced by Frederick Nolting, Jr. A few months before JFK was murdered, Nolting was replaced by Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. In early 1963, Colby was named the CIA's Far East Division Chief and returned to Washington, D.C. [from Wiki]

While Colby was in Rome from 1953 to 1958, "he helped to arrange the secret subsidization of political parties to prevent communist electoral victories." This was several years after Angleton had worked in Italy. In Vietnam Colby's real job from 1959 to 1962 was CIA station chief in Saigon.

UK immigration files show that Suzy had gone to England in 1954 as a nursing student at a hospital in Birmingham.
