    (August 3, 1918-March 7, 1999)
    Headed the chemical division of the CIA's Technical Services Section
    Ran the MK/ULTRA mind control experiments
    Known as the 'Black Sorcerer' and 'Dirty Trickster'
    As the CIA's chief poison expert, he planned unsuccessful assassination attempts against Fidel Castro, Patrice Lumumba of Zaire, and Gen. Abdul Karim Qassim of Iraq.
    He supervised a program to secretly open Americans' mail.
    The MK/ULTRA program dosed dozens - if not hundreds - of people with LSD without their consent or knowledge.
    He personally spiked the drinks of acquaintances and colleagues with LSD.
    As 'research,' he personally took LSD over 200 times.
    Experiments in hypnosis, electroshock therapy and sensory deprivation were also carried out as part of MK/ULTRA.
    Shortly before retiring from the CIA, he admitted that most MK/ULTRA experiments had been of little or no value.
    He was born with two club feet and could not walk until he had undergone three surgeries.
    After retiring from the CIA, he became a doctor at a leper hospital in India.
    Discussing using human beings as unwitting guinea pigs, he told the Senate, 'It was felt that in an issue where national survival might be concerned, such a procedure and such a risk was a reasonable one to take.'
    Shortly before his death, he said he was being made the 'fall guy' for all the CIA's misdeeds.
