Robert Trumbull Crowley died in a Washington DC hospital on October 8, 2000.
He was a senior Central Intelligence Agency officer from 1948 until the mid-1980s.
During his tenure with the CIA, Crowley became Assistant Deputy Director
for Operations and the second-in-command of the clandestine Directorate
He wrote a book entitled The New KGB: Engine of Soviet Power that was
published in 1985 by William Morrow.
In 1996, prior to what Crowley felt might be a fatal major surgery for
suspected lung cancer, he gave a number of historical documents from his
extensive personal files to an American journalist with whom he had been
One of the caveats of this gift was that none of the material could be
used or published until after his death.
Among the treasure trove of historical material on the genesis and
operations of the influential CIA was an alphabetical listing of CIA sources
throughout the world, provided below.
A source is not a paid agent but an individual who can occupy a position
of influence, such as an international banker, a member of the print or
television media, or a scholar or academic, who might be in a position to
influence official decisions or supply necessary support for an official CIA
Other material covered a number of clandestine operations of the agency,
both national and international, from 1948 through 1978.
For instance, among papers in the Crowley archives there is an explosive
signed report concerning the underlying facts of the assassination of
President John Kennedy and other material on such controversial issues as
Operation Phoenix, the MK-ULTRA program, Operations Condor and Applepie,
and even an in-house budget for the 1996-97 fiscal years.
In his final years, a reflective Crowley often expressed his desire to
help others understand the many historical events that he was party to, and
his many friends and admirers are pleased that his wishes are now being fulfilled.
