112. Dispatch From Operation PBSUCCESS Headquarters in Florida to the Chief of the Western Hemisphere Division, Central Intelligence Agency (King)1



  • Calligeris’ Status in Honduras
In an informal memorandum dated 1 March 1954,2Stephen R. Lugton reported that Calligeris had been in contact with the Minister of Foreign Relations in Honduras. The Minister told Calligeris that President Galvez would be much more willing to support Calligeris as far as freedom of movement, black flights, etc., are concerned if Galvez would receive confirmation of the sensitivity and authenticity of the Calligeris movement from a third party.3 Calligeris told Lugton that until the “Group” makes the necessary gestures to Galvez via whatever channels they may choose, he will be limited in what he can accomplish.
The above is submitted for your information and possible guidance in levying an appropriate request on ODACID.
