Nathaniel Heidenheimer Posted August 26, 2008 Share Posted August 26, 2008 Finally made it up to the research library with the two big lions in order research the Larry Stern articles. There were lots of them but, the computer seemed end with an article just before Wounded Knee in 1973. There was nothing listed under Lawrence Stern or Laurence stern btw. 1973 and his death by the footnoted bee-sting described by Mr. Seagrave in the posts above. This is the article I was looking for most of all: .. In 1965 a firm called Psychological Assessment Associates Inc., was established with headquarters in Washington D.C. Founded by two retired CIA psychologists, the firm's mains source of funding was the CIA. See Laurence Stern, "Behind Psychological Assessment's Door, a CIA Operation," Washington Post, June 21, 1974, p A3. (footnote 22, Chapter 3, Secret Agenda, p. 53 by Jim Hougan) This footnote occurs in the context of Hougan's description of a possible second CIA psychological operation that plumbers +2 may have tripped-been-pushed -over? in the course of their otherwise also disputed itinerary. This article was nowhere to be found. So far. There were a number of articles on federal vs state control of oil industry regulations, written by Stern. The States seem to have won that battle after JFK died. JFK wanted stronger federal control. One article is about the resignation of John M. Kelly as assistant secretary of the interior. (Kelly Quits Oil Post, Governor Try Hinted, July 3, 1965) Stern hints at serious conflict between the Kennedy appointed Kelly and Johnson's Sec. of Interior Udall: In recent months Kelly has been away from Washington when major oil policy decisions were announced by Udall. He was in Paris last April when Udall made the controversial announcement that he would not ease restrictions on importation of residual fuel oil-- a move that was bitterly decried by New England members of Congress. Last month, Kelly was again out of town when the Secretary announced tht there would be no changes in the crude-oil import-control program. Although Kelly coveted anonymity, he became embroiled in several controversies since his selection by President Kennedy in 1961. At the time of his nomination he was criticized in grounds that he failed to divest himself of considerable New Mexico oil holdings, although he did dipose of his Federal oil leases. Kelly left Washington by automobile Thursday for his home town of Roswell, NM., and was unavailable for comment. Another Stern article (Report Hits Oil Firms Influence: Attorney General Hints at Stricter Antitrust Action, May 17, 1963) provides important context for these "controversies" around Kelly. Apparently the Kennedy admin. was favoring smaller independent oil companies in a way that the big boys did not like! More on this article later.
