Gaps remain in the story of the growth and evolution of pre-centralized US intelligence services operating in Austria. The envisioned project will enable further exploration of both ‘the field’ and
‘headquarters’ components of the Strategic Services Unit (SSU) and Central Intelligence Group (CIG) in the Austrian context. Pursuant to this, the previously unassessed role of the counterintelligence and positive intelligence regional chiefs for Austria in Washington DC (Evelyn M. Williams and David F. Strong, respectively) must be examined in greater detail.
