I have posted in the past asking for help, and a few have responded to my questions, so it hasn't been a waist of my time asking for help here when a few have come through for me. And, I want to personally thank you for that, you know who you are Zach and friends. I now come to you with one more question, I have been doing some research on a name and could use some help please, from anyone who may know or heard of this person, he goes by the name of Joseph D. Potts, would anyone know if he was either Secret Service or with the OSS.

Thanks!

Scott

Thanks Thomas and Bernice!

Bernice, I don't think its Walter E. Potts that I'm looking for, unless its an alias in my fathers phone book, under the name General Paul Griffith he has Joseph D. Potts, his name was placed just above Ewdero, aka Edwardo, aka Howard Hunt.

For the record.

As we noted elsewhere, Joseph D. Potts was a Philadelphia millionaire, the SS Joseph D. Potts was an oil tanker named after him.

The reference in your notebook is to the SS. J.D.Potts, docked at the time at the Richmond Oil terminal at San Diego.
