A series of documents and supplemental reports used by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for a variety of reasons that include employment applications, debriefing subjects of interest, and they were updated by Agency employees when requested for advancement and security purposes.

His activities ranged from Cold War anti-Communist operations to advising South Vietnamese generals before they assassinated South Vietnamese President Diem.

Among Harvey's other covert assignments was developing Project ZRRIFLE under his authority as Chief of Task Force W and he also led Staff D, a CIA Staff group that concentrated on the penetration of enemy signals intelligence. 

File 5: Balmes Nieves Hidalgo Jr.
Hidalgo was a CIA staff member who testified in a formerly classified Executive Session of the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA). He possessed longstanding connections to multiple people associated with the JFK assassination case and Hidalgo's Agency operations included the collection of information, anti-Communist counterintelligence, and he performed some work from the CIA's JM Wave station.

File 6: James Walton Moore
 He managed a small CIA Field Office within Dallas in 1963 and Moore had multiple contacts with George de Mohrenschildt a known associate of Lee Harvey Oswald. De Mohrenschildt claimed they discussed Oswald significantly before the assassination of President Kennedy and this claim drew unwanted attention to Moore after reporters and members of the public attempted to link him to the Kennedy assassination.        

File 7: David Sanchez Morales
He was the JM Wave Station's Deputy Chief and was noted to orchestrate and undertake multiple paramilitary operations from the once secret Agency base located near Miami, Florida.

File 9: Richard Edward Snyder
Snyder took part in Agency operations and notable among them was his time in the American Consulate in Helsinki, Sweden. While serving there he encountered the brash young American defector Lee Harvey Oswald and did not process Oswald's request to renounce his American citizenship. Additionally, Oswald's choice of Helsinki is remarkable due to the CIA's foreknowledge of Swedish authorities largely ignoring active British and United States intelligence operations.

The Directorate for Plans employed Swenson in multiple positions for twenty years and in 1965, his CIA assignment placed him undercover in the State Department Foreign Service Office.
