CIA document –
The American programs through Dr. Webster of RDB will be coordinated with British and Canadian programs.
To understand what the heck is this RDB thing anyway, I had to go way back to catch exactly how, who, and why there even exists such a nasty conduit for the slavemasters.
Note: My research on this is primarily taken from my as yet unpublished library article about Harris Marshall Chadwell.
A History of How The Slavemasters Infiltrated the U.S. To Embroil Americans In Their Crimes Against Humanity
It’s a big shell-game with the slavemasters, they’re always creating (or re-naming) groups and committees and boards and societies to try and hide that there does exist straight lines leading right to them.
That being why they do it, of course. They don’t want that easily known.
But, if you get early enough, you can always catch them right there and exposed, and you can then track their nasty agendas straight on down through the decades and they can’t hide from you no matter how complicated they try to make it.
To sort out such an area you must be capable (and willing) to handle a whole lot of confusion and be able to properly understand sometimes hundreds of years of history. They figure (and rightly) that most people would rather bounce off such a mess and just concern themselves with their daily lives.
But, then there’s people like me who can do both – and I’m not the only one.
In intelligence, there is something called flair. It’s a something that cannot be taught, it either is allowed to exist by the person or its denied and buried under some never-ending quest for happiness through ignorance.
One of the things someone with this ‘flair’ can do, is find things purely by looking at something and knowing what’s behind it without any other evidence other than their own native ability to see. Then, they can go about digging in all the right places and find the evidence – even though they don’t really need to but it’s often done to help others to see who might choose to be willing to.
In a very real sense, this is what it takes to track an area where the slavemasters have been very busy. You must be able to look at something that doesn’t appear on its surface to be connected but yet you can see with your non-physical senses that it is.
If I had to pick one thing that brings down even their most complex house-of-cards?
It would be that –
Beginnings are their Achilles heel.
Because you see, in order to accomplish their goals they must begin somewhere. Like this RDB. It has a beginning, but it’s hidden almost a hundred years in the past.
The National Research Council.
It was the earliest incarnation of the NDRC (the National Defense Research Council). I knew as soon as I came across it in some archaic book, that here was the Slavemaster connection along that particular road of ‘studying humanity’ in order to control it towards their goals.
I then proceeded to verify that the British branch of the slavemasters, as usual, were lurking in the shadows of its principal founder – George Ellery Hale.
George was specifically setting into motion in America, an organization modeled upon the British Royal Institution and its “relationship” with the Royal Society – as confirmed in The Autobiography of Robert A. Millikan (New York: Prentice-Hall, 1950), pp. 132–134.
It was actually first called the National Research Foundation.
June 19, 1916 marked the start of the now named National Research Council.
The Academy Council (which Hale also headed) plan stated that the members of the National Research Council were to be:
“leading American investigators and engineers, representing Army, Navy, Smithsonian Institution, and various scientific bureaus of the Government, educational institutions and research endowments, and the research divisions of industrial and manufacturing establishments.“
On July 24, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson approved the preliminary plan for –
“the National Research Council, which was formed at my request under the National Academy of Sciences. …“
At his request is a total misrepresentation. It was Colonel House (as part of his usual tete-a-tete with the British slavemasters) who told him to make it look like it was his idea.
On August 5, Wilson sent the names of “his” (here we go again, they were House’s recommendations) appointments to the Council for the armed services and federal bureaus.
- Maj. Gen. William C. Gorgas, Surgeon General;
- Brig. Gen. William Crozier, Chief of Ordnance;
- Lt. Col. George O. Squier, Signal Corps, Aviation Section;
- Rear Adm. David W. Taylor, Chief of Construction;
- Mr. Van H. Manning, Director, Bureau of Mines;
- Professor Charles F. Marvin, Chief of the Weather Bureau;
- Dr. S. W. Stratton, Director, Bureau of Standards;
- Dr. Charles D. Walcott, Secretary, Smithsonian Institution;
- and Dr. William H. Holmes, Chief Curator, National Museum.

What’s the very first thing they did?
Chairman Hale and his good buddy Mr. Welch sailed right off to England to ‘consult’ with scientists there on the “physical and chemical problems of the war.”
Mr. Welch’s job was to study how the British did things in their medical hospitals and how they addressed “medical problems created by the war.”
Things like this – were what Welch studied while he was in England.
When Welch came back from this ‘tour’, through the intercession of himself, Colonel V.C. Vaughan, and the Surgeon General William C. Gorgas, they ‘won’ acceptance in the Medical Department of the Army for the application of psychology to war problems.
The primary reference I have been using for the basic points of history of the National Research Council is this –
Reference – The National Academy of Sciences: The First Hundred Years 1863–1963, section World War I and the Creation of the National Research Council
Here is what that reference says about this application of psychology by a man named Yerkes –
A group under Robert M. Yerkes, pioneer in the use of intelligence tests, began to work out methods of psychological testing that would be specifically applicable to the armed forces. The group developed first the famous alpha and beta tests for literates and illiterates and demonstrated for the first time on a large scale what appeared to be remarkable differences in intelligence among various army groups. The Research Council team then went on to consider the psychological problems of aviation. It developed batteries of special aptitude tests, made studies of problems of vision, of military training and discipline, of shell shock reeducation, and of methods of influencing enemy morale. Like that in every other division of the Research Council, the work of the psychologists had scarcely more than begun when the war ended.
When you take into account what I am about to tell you, please notice how much that little blurb is NOT telling you, but also notice the forerunners of what would later show up in the concentration camp experiments of WWII – a war the British and Vatican slavemasters also arranged.
Let me show you some real history regarding this Yerkes character, whom I wrote extensively about in my library article – British Security Coordination Compendium III: Your Mind, My Mind.
I’m not going to excerpt all the relevant parts, but more of a condensed version. In light of that, I highly suggest you read the library article for a fuller understanding of any one individual point I’m going to mention here.
Let’s start with the fact that Yerkes was a die-hard eugenicist, sort of the ‘link’ between the British slavemasters and one of the main American poster boys for Eugenics – a man named H.H. Goddard.
It’s a common mistake (I believe deliberately made possible) for people to get the erroneous idea that Eugenics organizations first started in America.
In 1907 the British Eugenics Education Society was also founded, with the aim of promoting the research and understanding of eugenics. It changed names to the Eugenics Society in 1926 (often referred to as the British Eugenics Society to distinguish it from others). From 1909-1968 it published The Eugenics Review.
It was three years later in 1910 that the sister organization of the Eugenic Record Office was founded in the United States, both institutes used the research results of the Galton Laboratory of National Eugenics to propose practical applications.
All of this is six years before this whole ‘project’ for the National Research Council to ‘study’ American military recruits as to their ‘intelligence’.
So, what was Yerkes doing during that six years?
Experimenting on ‘mental defectives’ in an isolated mansion in New Jersey.
Located on 40 acres of land, the Scarborough Mansion was the main quarters of “The Training School at Vineland”.
By 1906, Goddard had formed The Psychological Research Laboratory there which he was the director of. It was the first research facility devoted to studying mental deficiencies in the US.
Yerkes was his right-hand man. It is through him that we find one of those difficult-to-find connections that show that Britain was not just involved, they were leading all of this insanity.
Yerkes worked together with Sir Cyril Burt (1883-1971).
Sir Cyril Burt
Burt was an Oxford man, and heavily invested in promoting Eugenics – the concept of a racial and mental/spiritual superiority.
Burt was literally brought up into this mentality, practically at-the-knee of Francis Galton himself.
His father was a doctor, and one of his more famous patients was Darwin Galton, brother of Francis Galton. The visits the Burts made to the Galton estate not only allowed the young Burt to learn about the work of Francis Galton, but also allowed Burt to meet him on multiple occasions and to be strongly drawn to his ideas; especially his studies in statistics and individual differences, two defining characters of the London School of Psychology whose membership includes both Galton and Burt.
Four years before Burt’s contact in America, Yerkes had prodded Goddard to form the Psychological Research Laboratory – Oxford Professor William McDougall (yes, that McDougall of Society of Psychical Research and Duke University/J.B. Rhine infamy) suggested that the young Cyril Burt focus his senior project on psychometrics, thus educating him in the development and structure of mental tests. Burt complied willingly. This was 1902.
This is an excellent example of that the Cecil Bloc* of slavemasters, at one of their “homes”, are using universities and impressionable young students to forward research that they wanted done as part of their overall plan. You can see that guiding hand easily with Burt here.
*Cecil Bloc – a connected group of political and social power formed originally by the Cecil/Cavendish families under Queen Elizabeth I. The term was coined by historian Professor Quigley.
Since Burt was already well-versed in the beginning of “psychometric testing”, you can clearly see the influence coming from Cyril Burt and the British Eugenics Society straight on over to Yerkes and Goddard in the U.S. and then the National Research Council in 1916 where they then ‘won’ acceptance in the Medical Department of the Army for the application of psychology to war problems.
Now you can understand that most of what we know as psychology, practically right from the beginning, was actually part of Eugenics, making the National Research Council actually a kind of covert Eugenics front group.
Short timeline –
- 1902 – moves were already afoot to accelerate the ideas of Eugenics, Oxford Professor McDougall tells the young Cyril Burt to focus his senior project on psychometrics, thus educating him in the development and structure of mental tests. The first stage to classifying humanities “mental” states.
- 1904 – Brits found Eugenics chairs in their universities like Oxford, for example.
- 1906 – McDougall and Burt have influence on Goddard who forms The Psychological Research Laboratory at Vineland Training School in New Jersey. He makes Yerkes his right-hand man. It was the first research facility devoted to studying mental deficiencies in the US.
- 1907 – the British formed the the first Eugenics society in the world, McDougal tasks Cyril Burt to help with a nation-wide survey of physical and mental characteristics of the British people. The “survey” had been proposed by Francis Galton (the man who originated Eugenics). Burt relays his findings to Yerkes at Vineland Training School in the U.S.
- 1908 – summer – Burt was directed by McDougall to go study the German eugenicist psychiatrists for a couple of years, which he did.
- 1910 – Cyril Burt becomes involved with Frederic Myers and “psychical” testing and investigations with the SPR, not long after Myers published his findings from the prior twenty plus years. This later evolves in the U.S. into the J.B. Rhine ESP tests at Duke University in the U.S. – then headed by a Cecil Rhodes scholar – and the various secret projects directed at control of men’s minds such as the CIA’s Projects BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE, MKULTRA and MKSEARCH
- 1916 – National Research Council engages in chemical and bio-weapons research and psychological testing during WWI together with Cyril Burt of the British Eugenics society and Robert Yerkes of the American eugenics society and the Vineland school.
- 1920 – Cyril Burt starts the Tavistock Clinic for children, quickly moving into ‘treating’ adults and he went on to mentor both John Bowlby who helped head up the British psychological assessment boards in WWII.
Left to sleep for the next quarter of a century, the next evolution of the National (Defense) Research Council began in the years just before America’s engagement in WWII – big surprise, right?
A man named Vannevar Bush had been appointed to the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) in 1938, and soon became its chairman.
Two years later, at Vannevar Bush’s direction, John F. Victory, Executive Secretary of NACA, prepared a draft of an act of Congress setting up a National Defense Research Committee (NDRC) authorized to:
construct and operate research laboratories [this was later omitted] and to make contracts for research, studies, and reports with educational and scientific institutions, with individuals, and with industrial and other organizations … to conduct research and experiments in such laboratories as may be placed under its direction. … [and] to coordinate, supervise, and conduct scientific research on the problems underlying the development, production, and use of mechanisms and devices of warfare, except scientific research on the problems of flight.
In early June of 1940 Bush, through his White House acquaintance Harry Hopkins, saw President Roosevelt who approved the functions of the committee Bush proposed. Roosevelt suggested that “it might be more quickly set up by executive order” than by act of Congress.
That’s Roosevelt going AROUND congress, you understand.
Bush then met with General George C. Marshall and Admiral Harold R. Stark, both of whom expressed interest in shifting some of their current research work to the National Defense Research Committee.
Karl Compton, Conant, Jewett, U.S. Commissioner of Patents Conway P. Coe, and the Dean of the California Institute of Technology’s graduate school, Richard C. Tolman, with whom Bush had worked out the details of the proposed committee, all agreed to serve and on June 15, 1940, the President sent out their letters of appointment.
The letters named Bush Chairman of the new NDRC; Tolman as the Chairman of its Division A (armor and ordnance); Conant as head of Division B (bombs, fuels, gases, and chemical problems); Jewett as head of Division C (communications and transportation); Compton as head of Division D (detection, controls, and instruments); and Coe as head of Division E (patents and inventions). Brig. Gen. George V. Strong was the Army representative on the committee and Rear Adm. Harold G. Bowen, the Navy representative.
The President’s letter of authorization to Bush that same day confirmed the mission of the committee to conduct and correlate scientific research in the national defense, to utilize the facilities of existing agencies and institutions, draw on the President’s Council of National Defense (CND) for funds, and call on the National Academy, the Research Council, and the National Bureau of Standards for assistance in carrying out the necessary research. The letter also said that Dr. Briggs’s special committee, which had been set up “to study into the possible relationship to national defense of recent discoveries in the field of atomistics, notably the fission of uranium,” would report thereafter directly to Bush.
The NDRC came into formal existence on June 27, 1940.
*SOE – Special Operations Executive, THE wartime lead British intelligence organization.
But here’s where it gets interesting – the month before, through back-channel communications between the British SOE* executives (the hundreds year long China opium-smuggling family represendted by Tony Keswick) and President Roosevelt, the previous National Defense Council (part of the National Research Council) had been quietly reactivated one month before Vannevar Bush is tasked to prepare this new “research” act.
The sleeper committee, with all its nice little ties to eugenics and the British/Vatican slavemasters, had been awakened.
To further veil responsibility and hide the true source of this ‘idea’, the NDRC was not established by executive order as Roosevelt originally intended. He had been ‘advised’ to hide it under the now resurrected NRC (now reversed into being the CNR or CND).
Don’t you just love the shell game these people play with the names of things?
The CND (which is really a corollary to the now resurrected NRC) comprised the Secretaries of War, Navy, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, and Labor and it issued an “establishing order” for the new NDRC.
That was hard to track down, let me tell you, but now everyone can see the whole evolution starting from 1916.
– – –
The next thing that happened was –
At the first meeting of NDRC that same week (June 1940) Bush and his associates agreed that the committee should be solely “concerned with research rather than industrial development or production,” its principal task aimed at “correlating and supporting scientific research on the mechanisms and devices of warfare.”
Sounds utterly innocuous, doesn’t it?
Under the shadow of such dry-sounding words would be some of the most horrific and destructive projects against humanity that had ever existed.
The creation of NDRC at once supplied a mechanism for the interchange of scientific information with Great Britain and Canada.
Speaking of Britain –
The origins of its scientific intelligence section lay in the creation under Oxford trained scientist Sir Henry Tizard of the Committee for the Scientific Survey of Air Defence. The ‘Tizard Committee’ began meeting in secret in January 1935.
In September 1940, a scientific mission headed by Sir Henry T. Tizard of the Imperial College of Science and Technology and scientific adviser to the Ministry of Aircraft Production arrived in Washington, authorized to exchange the military research secrets of the British government for those of the United States.
Yes, the very same Tizard that would later put in an appearance at the secret meeting of 1951 in Montreal – Mr. MI6.
That same year of 1940, there had been a reorganization of British Intelligence, “Special Duties”, the War Office liaison to the SIS (Scientific Intelligence Section) was now designated MI6 – the first time this title was ever used with reference to SIS. 10
Tizard had earlier resigned that year, theoretically because of utterly insane behavior by Mr. Lindemann (Lord Cherwell, Winston Churchill’s ‘dog’ as he referred to him) but this eventually resulted in the ousting of Lindemann and Tizard eventually taking on a more superior – and secretive – position in Britain’s Ministry of Defense.
It was in this capacity that he came to the U.S. in September of 1940 to head the ‘research’ exchange.
A little over six months later, in May of 1941, Vannevar Bush (our British intelligence go-between) recommended to Roosevelt that the NDRC be better organized to accomplish their ‘objectives.’
That means – making the really nasty research even more hidden and under a new name.
Yet again bypassing Congress so that the American people had no chance to stop it.
On June 28, 1941, less than six months before Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt signed the Executive Order creating the Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD), with Bush as Director, personally responsible to the traitorous President Roosevelt.
Now the slavemasters had ‘their man’ Bush – a kind of American Mengele of sorts – right where they wanted him.

The new OSRD, with its extraordinary ability to mobilize science, with funds specifically appropriated by Congress for the Department of Defense, and with access to the President was, like NDRC, a new kind of scientific agency in the federal structure.
As an administrative agency in the President’s Office for Emergency Management (OEM) and independent of the Council of National Defense, OSRD at once achieved a maximum of flexibility and freedom of operation.
Moreover, through its access to the President, it established a new relationship between science and government and its Director Vannevar Bush became in effect science adviser to the President and his Cabinet.
As Director of OSRD, Bush was given “final responsibility for the entire program of civilian scientific research and development, not only in the fields of instrumentalities of warfare, but also in all fields of military medicine.”
The NDRC, itself transferred intact from the Council of National Defense to the new OSRD, was placed under Conant; and a new Committee on Medical Research (CMR) was established, composed of representatives of the Surgeons General of the Army, Navy, and Public Health Service and four civilians appointed by the President.
The civilian members of CMR were:
- Alfred N. Richards, Vice-President in charge of medical affairs at the University of Pennsylvania (Chairman)
- Lewis H. Weed, Director of the School of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University and Chairman of the NRC Division of Medical Sciences
- Alphonse R. Dochez, Chairman of the Department of Bacteriology at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons
- A. Baird Hastings, Hamilton Kuhn Professor at the Harvard Medical School.
An Advisory Council in OSRD, consisting of Bush as Chairman; Conant; Richards; Jerome C. Hunsaker of NACA; Harvey H. Bundy, Special Assistant to Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson; and Rear Adm. Julius A. Furer, Coordinator of Research and Development under Secretary of the Navy James V. Forrestal, would assist the Director in coordinating research programs.
Although not a member of the Council, Dr. Jewett as President of the Academy attended most of the meetings.

Meanwhile – about a year later some other interesting things were going on.
– OSS Timeline from the National Archives –
- March, 1942 Joint Psychological Warfare Committee (known also as JPWC) created by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) – which was heavily British controlled – to initiate and develop plans for psychological warfare and to coordinate the resultant psychological warfare activities. Originally it consisted of two officers each from the intelligence services of the Army and Navy and two from the Joint United States Strategic Committee.
- June 13, 1942 Presidential order creates the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), places it under the JCS
- June 21, 1942 JCS reorganizes the Joint Psychological Warfare Committee, with William Donovan as chairman – When the Office of Strategic Services was established in June 1942, the Joint Psychological Warfare Committee was reorganized and reported thereafter through the Joint Staff Planners. The Director of Strategic Services became Chairman, and the directors of the intelligence services and of the planning divisions of the Army and Navy comprised the other four members.
- August 25, 1942 Brigadier General John Magruder submits a “Proposed Plan for Joint Intelligence Bureau”
- October 31, 1942 at the request or the Psychological Warfare Branch of the National (Defense) Research Council activated a committee to investigate the feasibility of using drugs in the interrogation of Prisoners of War. This was the truth drug committee.
- December 22, 1942 JCS abolishes the Joint Psychological Warfare Committee and gives its functions to the OSS
That last entry was as a result of the single major reorganization within OSRD that had taken place in December 1942, when the sprawling elements of the original five divisions of NDRC were realigned into nineteen divisions, two panels (one on applied mathematics and another on applied psychology), and three committees (on vacuum tubes, radio propagation, and tropical deterioration). The twenty-four division, committee, and panel chairmen, nine of them Academy members, were given the widest possible latitude in planning and executing their programs; and the development of new military hardware and supporting combat gear, as Bush intended, began to accelerate.11
11 – The National Academy of Sciences: The First Hundred Years 1863–1963, section The Academy in World War II
The same day, an extremely secretive (and arguably worst as to human experimentation) – and one of the original five (given letters A, B, C, D, etc.) previous NDRC branches – became the new OSRD Division 19 headed by Harris Marshall Chadwell
(center – December 1939)
Division 19 was a highly secretive combined OSS and National Defense Research Committee (OS-RDB) organization headed by the equally little known Dr. H. Marshall Chadwell. Division 19’s first project was the ‘special weapons project’ which included obtaining and field testing drugs like LSD, concentrated marijuana, etc. It was headed by OSS man George Hunter White.
This was the end result of the infamous Truth Drug Committee.
A little over two years after Sir Tizard had come to the U.S. to do this ‘exchange’ of information, on October 31, 1942, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), America’s wartime intelligence agency had set up a ‘truth drug’ committee under Dr. Winfred Overholser, head of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington. The Germans were doing this same kind of human experimentation over at Dachau at this time, with people like the later Operation Paperclip scientist Hubertus Strughold being involved.
The committee had tried out and rejected mescaline (as had the Nazis) plus several barbiturates, and a soporific called scopolamine.
The U.S. experimenters, much like the Nazis, had a number of experimentee deaths and comas from all this ‘testing’, yet despite these “problems” (as these comas and deaths were put, I kid you not) the program was transferred under the RDB starting January 1, 1943 – specifically under Harris Chadwell’s Division 19.
The committee decided that cannabis indica –or marijuana –showed the most promise, and utilizing OSS agent George White, now Chadwell’s man, a testing program was started in cooperation with the Manhattan Project, the TOP SECRET effort to build an atomic bomb.
In the spring of 1943, George White, together with a Manhattan Project counterintelligence man, borrowed 15 to 18 thick dossiers from the FBI and went off to try the marijuana on suspected ‘Communist’ soldiers stationed in military camps outside Atlanta, Memphis, and New Orleans.
Many researchers during the last fifty years, could not understand why the OSS turned to ‘the bomb makers’ for help.
Well, because of my research tracking their organizations here, now you can understand that what happened was that they simply merged the OSS project under the RDB – the new Office of Scientific Research and Development (RDB) in the Department of Defense, (who was also in charge of the Manhattan Project) putting it under the newly named (and most secretive of all) Division.
As part of Division 19, Harris Marshall Chadwell would also have an intimate involvement in the Manhattan Project – the project to develop the nuclear bomb, so this all begins to make a kind of twisted sense.
Note: Chadwell would later become Assistant Director of the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI) and be involved in the whole UFO debacle together with CIA asset, writer James Phelan, who was also heavily involved with helping CIA agent George Hunter White in his cover-building adventures. See George Hunter White specific person articles.
Moving on to after WWII –
On September 14, 1945 (by OSS General Order 93), the liquidation of OSS was ordered. By an Executive order of September 20, 1945, OSS was abolished (effective October 1, 1945), and its functions, personnel, and records were divided between the State Department and the War Department.
By April 1947 the greater part of the records of OSS were in the custody of the Strategic Services Unit of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of War, a unit that had inherited the work of the archives unit established within the Registry of OSS in July 1945.
It was in 1947 that The National Security Act was passed by Congress. Several things were established/created as a result.
- an independent air force coequal with the army and the navy
- a new cabinet position, that of secretary of defense, who would draft policies and coordinate programs of the newly created national military establishment.
Several boards and agencies were also set up under the act, according to suggestions made in the Eberstadt Report. Among them were –
- NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL
- CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY
- the Joint Chiefs of Staff (already in existence, but now legally recognized),
- the Munitions Board
and finally – the Research and Development Board established under the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD). The Board had a Committee on Chemical and Biological Warfare, consisting of a full time three man executive staff and consultant members from science, industry and government.8
8. Biological testing involving human subjects by the Department of Defense, 1977: hearings before the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Committee on Human Resources, United States Senate, Ninety-fifth Congress, First Session on Examination of Serious Deficiencies in the Defense Department’s efforts to protect the Human Subjects of Drug Research, March 8 and May 23, 1977.
The RDB also explored effective means of propaganda and radio broadcasting – for example Project TROY worked on psychological warfare operations inside the Soviet Bloc in particular.
The National Security Act was amended in 1949, changing the National Military Establishment into the Department of Defense (the DOD) and making it an executive government office with the Secretary of Defense as its head.
This means the RDB (the OSRD with its Division 19) continued on as one of the more superior boards of the now named DOD.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, brings us back around to this secret meeting in Montreal in 1951.
CIA document –
The American programs through Dr. Webster of RDB will be coordinated with British and Canadian programs.
That quote is from one of the CIA documents that were discussing this meeting in Montreal, in particular this document from Black Vault’s MKULTRA archives disk 1, folder 144788, image #1.
These innocuous sounding ‘programs’ were their plans for secret human experimentation to break someone’s will is what is going to be ‘coordinated’.
William Webster had headed the Committee on Atomic Energy in 1949, as well as having been Chairman of the Military Liaison Committee of the Atomic Energy Commission.13
13. 1949 pamphlet of the Office of Scientific Research and Development, Research and Development for short, aka RDB.
We discussed the fact that the only link that I’ve come across regarding any connection between the Atomic Energy Commission (Manhattan Project to create the nuclear bomb) and mind control interests was one that Arnie Lerma found– other than John Marks talking about George White, the Truth Drug Committee and working with the Manhattan Project to carry out their mind control experiments.
Well, after that history you just learned, now you now WHY there’s a link between the two.
So, when we see this line in the CIA document –
The American programs through Dr. Webster of RDB will be coordinated with British and Canadian programs.
Now we know what that RDB actually is.
Webster was the Chairman of that in the 1950/51 time period exactly when all these secret mind-control ‘brainwashing’ projects were mushrooming up out of the dark, dank, pits where the ideas sprung from.12
12. Conversation with William Webster Chairman RDB (Research and Development Board) Memoranda of William T. Golden, November 29, 1950
This is William in 1952 – also VP of New England Electric
William was involved with planning 4 nuclear weapon blasts per year in Nevada, as well as biological warfare weapons tests the same year of this Montreal meeting (1951)
To give you an idea of just how big a deal it was for him to be coordinating the research between the American, British and Canadian mind control human experimentation programs – this man was in charge of the entire defense R&D budget. 14
Billions of dollars.
So, now that we’re all caught up again, I’d like to point out that I tracked down all these people at this Montreal meeting and explained who they were in this post.
What did they discuss at this meeting that Mr. Webster and his billions at-his-fingertips was going to ‘coordinate’?
How to do all those ‘devilish things’ to people.
Author Alfred McCoy tells us –
As noted in the Board’s minutes of the Montreal meeting, “Dr. Hebb suggested that an approach based upon the situation of sensory isolation might lead to some clues” to answering “the central problem” that interested this covert research coalition: that is
- “ ‘confession,’
- ‘menticide’ [means the systematic effort to undermine and destroy a person’s values and beliefs, as by the use of prolonged interrogation, drugs, torture, etc., and to induce radically different ideas.]
- ‘intervention in the individual mind,’
- —together with methods concerned in psychological coercion.”
Speaking at length, Hebb suggested that by “cutting off all sensory stimulation . . . , the individual could be led into a situation whereby ideas, etc. might be implanted.”
In response, Sir Henry concurred, stating that these issues “had become a matter of concern in the U.K.,” and adding that “the methods of psychological coercion . . . had been well developed by the [Medieval] inquisition” (Cooper, 1986, Appendix 21).
… As consensus formed about “research methods and design,” the group adopted Hebb’s suggestion that “experimental isolation in various forms for the production of sensory isolation” might place subjects “in such a position psychologically that they would be susceptible to implantation of new or different ideas.” 7
By their own propaganda, that’s both brain-washing and ‘brainchanging’ as CIA propagandist Edward Hunter put it in his 1951 book. (see library article: Earliest Use of the Term Brain-washing)
McCoy continues –

Now look at this again – considering that we now know for a fact that they invented this threat –
… The CIA’s own minutes concur, recording that the Montreal group agreed there was “no conclusive evidence” that the Soviets had made anything akin to “revolutionary progress,” and dismissed their interrogation as “remarkably similar . . to the age-old methods.”

The above is taken from my Reading Library article on Donald Ewen Cameron. Since the RDB and Daniel Webster were an integral part of a little known ordering board called the Psychological Strategy Board who fostered, among other things, a Doctrinal Program to create deviationist movements (like the Church of Scientology and the Unification Church) it seemed appropriate to pull it out by itself as its own stand alone post for easier reference.
