Landon Chronicles (1944): Kenneth on the Free Thai movement during and after the war (hour 68, clip 4)
During the war, the head of the Free Thai movement in Thailand was known as "Ruth" to the OSS. The head of the police was known as "Betty." These were their codenames. There were agents from the Free Thai movement in Washington during much of the war, and the Landons had them in their house a good deal. When the war ended, Seni Pramoj was called home to be Prime Minister. Kenneth was sent out at the same time to advise the US negotiators in the British-Thai negotiations.
