Scope and content

Series consists of records pertaining to a project started by Endicott, Edward Hagerman and John W. (Bill) Powell in 1978. Its purpose, among other things, was to interview surviving Western airmen from the Korean War era about their knowledge of bacteriological warfare, especially the US POWs (Prisoners of War) who had made depositions about their experience to their Chinese and North Korean captors. These records include a typescript and audio recordings of the autobiography of US Army doctor Major-General Crawford W. Sams, a copy of his classified report of a controversial, clandestine raid into North Korea, and an oral interview.
