Description

The Allen W. Dulles Papers contains correspondence, speeches, writings, and photographs documenting the life of this lawyer, diplomat, businessman, and spy. One of the longest-serving directors of the Central Intelligence Agency (1953-1961), he also served in a key intelligence post in Bern, Switzerland during World War II where he established his reputation as an intelligence operative with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). The collection is useful for understanding the role of both a private citizen and public servant's role in the shaping of United States foreign policy. Dulles's early career as a diplomat, his long association with the Council on Foreign Relations, his work at the international law firm of Sullivan and Cromwell, and his career in American intelligence are documented within this collection. However, those seeking information contemporaneous to his tenure at the helm of the CIA will be disappointed as CIA officials screened the collection before its transfer to Princeton.

There is, of course, far more at the link under the title of this post.

I stumbled across this having recently acquired "The Secret Surrender: The Classic Insider's Account of the Secret Plot [Operation Sunrise] to Surrender Northern Italy During WWII" by this fellow Dulles.

The copyright to the material is held by a member of the New Mexico Society of Jungian Analysts (Joan Buresch Talley) who I gather is the fellow's daughter.
