Title:
Landon Chronicles (1941): Kenneth on How Colonel William Donovan Got in Touch with Him (hour 64, clip 9)
Date:
1941
Description:
Kenneth explains what the OCI or Office of the Coordinator of Information was. William Donovan was convinced that war was coming, and that the United States would get into it, and that we lacked intelligence information. We didn't know much about the nations we would be fighting or about the parts of the world into which we would be going. He began to set up an intelligence operation system to bring all the information together that would take advantage of everything. Others resisted such a project, eventually President Roosevelt authorized the start of such a center. Then Donovan began to look for someone to answer the most pressing questions that President Roosevelt had at the time. (Length 7:04)
