02 e:ae <JFX,  
PER P.L. l - q . Pi · '13
t:).f DATE__.!......:.---
NARA _...,!:::::...:...----
1. Reference is made to the attached memora?du.m of 18
February 1964 from Chief, SAS, to which were attached c ies of
00/C memoranda reporting on interviews of Douglas K. ENTZKOW,
a West Point cadet. GENTZKOW, who is engage
Sherman BILLINGSLEY, contacted CIA to discuss ce ain notes and
papers left behind by Alex RORKE when he took off n his last flight
with Geoffrey SULLIVAN, allegedly financed by Luis SOMOZA, former
President of Nicaragua.
2.. GENTZKOW wished to make these notes available to the
Federal Government, however, he was anxious to avoid delay which
would arise from procee<?ng through military channe-ls because he felt
the information which was available appeared to him to be important,
dealing with Castro agents in the U.S., military installations in Cuba,
CIA training of refugees in Nicaragua, CIA radio operation "Swan",
etc. This by-passing of military channels, if called to the attention of
the proper authorities, could naturally result in his being dismissed
from West Point.
3. Referenced SAS memorandum suggests OS and 00/C should
decide whether to pass RORKE's information to the FBI, and whether or
not ACSI should be advised of GENTZKOW' s contact with this Agency.
4. I called Robert Travis of the Washington Field Office (Support)
of Contact Division to determine what other information was known to him
in regard to instant matter. He advised that at the time he furnished
copies of the 00/ C (New York) memoranda and teletype to SAS, he had
specifically recommended that no action whatsoever be taken in this
matter unless SAS had some pressing operational rei..son for so doing;
that no material be accepted from GENTZKOW, and the Agency not become
further involved in the matter.

I' /
5. A review of the files of OS reflects that a good deal of what
GENTZKOW thought to be highly sensitive information has already
appeared in public print; that RORKE made wild charges concerning
CIA
1
s lack of action against the Castro regime, yet at the same time
claimed that he himself was a CIA agent whose operations had been
financed by CIA.
RECOMMENDATION:
6. In all probability, GENTZKOW' s contact with CIA is pri -
marily based on his belief that RORKE had been a CIA agent, as RORKE
had repeatedly claimed. Since Mr. Travis of 00/C (Support) is of the
opinion that GENTZKOW' s offer of assistance should be declined, and
since SAS has stated they have never had any operational interest in
RORKE (and apparently have no interest in RORKE's papers), I believe
OS should concur in 00/ C' s recommendation.
7. With regard to passage of RORKE's papers to the FBI, it
might be suggested to GENTZKOW that he turn over RORKE's possessions
to RORKE's father for whatever disposition he may wish to make of it.

Honorable William S. Cohen
United States Senate
Washington, D.C. 20510
Dear Senator Cohen:
U.S. Department of Justice
  e d e r ~ } Bureau of Investigation
Washington. D. C. 20535
November 4, 1986
This is in further response to your letter of
September 22nd to the Department of Justice on behalf of
Ms. Sherry Sullivan.
As Ms. Sullivan is aware, the FBI did conduct an
investigation following the disappearance of her father,
Geoffery Sullivan, and his partner, Alexander Rorke, in 1963.
Ms. Sullivan requested all information concerning this inves-
tigation under provisions of the Freedom of Information Act,
and all releasable documents have been forwarded to her.
Ms. Sullivan has filed an appeal to obtain additional docu-
ments, and her appeal is currently pending.
Ms. Sullivan may wish to communicate with the Bureau
of Consular Affairs, Department of State, concerning her request
that a search be conducted for her father, whom she believes may
still be alive in Cuba. That Bureau is responsible for the wel-
fare of United States citizens abroad.
I hope the above will assist you in responding to
Ms. Sullivan. Your enclosure is being returned as requested.

Sincerely,
William M. Baker
Assistant Director
Office of Congressional
and Public Affairs

June 17, 1986
Through our extensive investigation in the search for my
father, Geoffery Sullivan, we have contacted many agencies
within our government, corresponded with the embassys to
many South American countries, and contacted numerous in-
dividuals who were directly or indirectly involved in the
anti Castro movement.
In a phone conversation dated June 16, 1986 with Marty Casey,
a string reporter for Time magazine who now resides in Miami,
Florida, we were informed of a conversation he held with a
Cuban in 1965. It s2ems Mr. Casey was on a ship docked on the
Camero Yoko Harbor Compound . This ship was retrieving people
to Miami who had prior clearance tr.r·ough the Cuban govermnent.
While waiting for the ship to load, he met a man by the name
of Carlos Vargara. This Mr. Vargara told Mr. Casey that he bad
been in prison two (2) years prior with a man by the name of
Rorke and Rorke's pilot Sullivan. Mr. Casey said that he re-
ported this information to the proper authorities. Here, 21
years later, Mr. Cas2y seems to be the only one who concerned
himself with this matter.
My fathers obvious involvement with your agency and other
operatives of your agency leaves me cold as to why your agency
chose to ignore this matter. And why to this date we have
received little cooperation from you in helping me find my
father. Most of the pertinent information in the files we
have received has been deleted, and it seems we have had to
struggle to receive the amount of information we have now.
Again, it is 21 years later and I am still seeking your
assistance, ana release of information that we desperately
need in the search for my father.
Again I do appreciate any consideration you may give me,
Sherry Sullivan

  86-0481 Appeal
and 86-0921
RLH:FLP:VLP
You appealed from the action of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation on your request for access to records pertaining to
your father, Geoffery Sullivan. I have interpreted your appeal
to encompass material withheld pursuant to the FBI letters dated
January 17 and May 21, 1986 as well as the document referred to
the Defense Intelligence Agency by the FBI that was addressed in
DIA's letter to you dated February 1986.
As a result of discussions between Bureau personnel and
members of my staff, a supplemental release of five pages is
enclosed. In light of this fact and after careful consideration
of your appeal, I have otherwise decided to affirm the action in
this case. Your father is the subject of two Bureau main files
-- one entitled Internal Security - Cuba and the other a corres,
pondence file -- and is alluded to briefly in twelve files, the
subjects of which are other individuals or organizations. The
Bureau has processed only those portions of the latter files
which pertain to him. Certain of the material pertaining to your
father is classified and I am affirming the denial of access to
it on the basis of 5 u.s.c. 552(b) (1). This material is being
referred to the Department Review Committee for review and
determination whether it warrants continued classification under
Executive Order 12356. You will be notified if the Committee's
final decision results in the declassification of any informa-
tion. Other materials were properly withheld from you pursuant
to 5 u.s.c. 552 (b) (2), (7) (C), and (7) (D). These provisions
pertain to purely internal agency practices and to investigatory
records compiled for law enforcement purposes, the release of
which would, respectively, constitute an unwarranted invasion of
the personal privacy of third parties, in some instances by
revealing an investigative interest in them on the part of the
FBI, and disclose the identities of confidential sources and
confidential information furnished only by such sourc.es. Names
of Bureau agents and other personnel were among the
items excised on the basis of 5 U.S.C. 552(b) (7) (C). None of.

RE: ALEXANDER I. RORKE, JR.

· In September, 1963, Rorke and a companion left Florida in ·
a rented plane allegedly for Honduras. He is considered dead by other soldiers
of fortune with whom he associated.
We have subsequently received letters from-

case, been advised of our jurisdiction and the fact tha
not be of assistance. The family of Rorke have apparently cone

NOTE FOR MR. WANNALL
Re: ALEXANDER RORKE
,
Per conversation,while talking to Mr. Katzenbach on the
afternoon of 4/27/63, he made the statement that the most helpful
information which could be developed in investigation of Rorke
would be the determination as to whether in fact, there was a
bombing of Havannah as claimed by Rorke, and as now claimed by the
Cuban Government. Katzenbach pointed out that, of course, in
. connection with any protest made by the Cuban Government, it would
J jt.l be of importance for the United States Government to be able to
)
· \state defenitely that no such raid occurred if this can be determined.
Katzenbach stated he was sure we had already recognized
this and are covering this in our inquiries. He was assured that
we are attempting to determine this information.
Katzenbach also referred. to the various inconsistencies
in the information thus developed, such as the time element
involved in his supposed flights. He felt that maybe these
inconsistencies could be exploited by us to develop the true facts.
He was assured we will take advantage of any such matters.
During a subsequent conversation with Katzenbach also
·· on the afternoon of 4/27/63, Ka tzenbach referred to news article
-c, .concerning some photographs of Rorke's plane which he·' apparently
· to newsmen. Katzenbach remarked that these photographs
  could possibly be of significance. He stated although the news
..... aa ·medium (be believes CBS but not sure) stated the photographs were
...... 1 )' not as depicted by Rorke, they might help in identifying persons
Rorke's plane. He, therefore, suggested that attempt
· . lJ '"be made to obt.ain these photographs if possible.
. 1<. "'\
. ; \}\..,\,'
In addition to the above, Katzenbach b-JC-
conversation referred to the information indicatin who ,(
was described as a Swiss alien, might also have been on e
reported flight by Rorke. Katzenbach mentioned that we possibly
already considered the advantage which might be gained should
vwe find out an alien. He stated the current
I
. immigration statu might be of interest, and should he
f>:.be an alien, tbis-i e utilized as leverage to obtain
from Katzenbach was assured that these
wou e overlooked during our inquiries.
The above are submitted for consideration as lead
material.

NOTE FOR l4R. WANNALL
Re: ALEXANDER RORKE
.J
•,
Per our discussion, Bob Hurwitch of State Department
called on afternoon of 4/27/63 and advised that State had received
information from press pe6ple at Miami Herald newspaper indicating
that Rorke reportedly checked out of the Kennelworth (ph) Hotel,
Bay Harbor, just outside of Miami Beach, Florida, sometime on the
morning of Friday, 4/26/63, ·
'
Hurwitch stated he was passing this on as possible lead
material since,' if this were true, it might indicate dil.screpancy

Sullivan vehemently denied taking part in any bombing
of Havana and said he knows nothing about his plane or any other
plane flying over Cuba, He claimed the only key for the door to
the plane was in his possession at all times while plane was
at West Palm Beach and that the plane could have only been entered

in Florida but knows nothing else about him, He
had retained an attorney named Emmett Nickles, who had
counseled him to say nothing,
A search of the plane was made by our Agents and FAA
officials in the presence of Sullivan but no significant material
was found and no visible evidence of bomb racks or material of an
incendiary nature was located, The plane was impounded by FAA which
is conducting an investigation to determine if Rorke and Sullivan

for refueling at approximately midnight on April 25, 1963, An
employee recalls the pilot's name as G. Sullivan and that there
were three other individuals aboard the plane. His description
of one of the passengers is similar to a description of Rorke and
he described a second pass engel· as being in his early 20's.

ReBuairtel 8/26/63, and San Juan airtel 8/20/63 •
Referanced San Juan airtel states that on 8/20/63,
the San Juan Office was advised by FAA that Department of
State requested FAA to notify the FBI, San Juan, to maintain
surveillance on B25 N9365C.
Oo 8/20/63, immediately after a telephone call was
received from San Juan Ofiice, concerning this message, Miami
contacted Department of State in Miami for clarification.
On 8/20/63, Mr. JOHN BARFIELD of the office of the
Coordinator of Cuban Affairs, U.S . Department of State,
1
lained he had received information from U.S. Border Patrol
oncerning this B-25 proposed trip to San Juan and advised
Miami, that the FBI in San Juan might be intterested in
s matter.
Mr. BARFIELD did not request any surveillance.
Miami Office did not suggest or offer to conduc
illance or request any other agency to do so.

4/29/63
NOTES FOR MR. RAY WANNALL
During conversation with Mr. Katzenbach on Saturday evening,
4/27/63, at which time I passed on to him the results of the interview with
Sullivan, Katzenbach remarked that he wondered whether the plane which had
been impounded by the FAA might contain any evidence or traces of bombs.
I at that time told him of the fact that a physical search by our Agents with ·
:. . FAA and with Sullivan's consent; however, Katzenbach stated he just wondered
t whether some technical examination might develop traces of powder or some

3
other material which might be involved in any bombing. 12 mentioned the fact
,. " that, according to newspaper accounts, these bombs were homemade and he
felt that some material might have been spilled in the plane. ·
During above conversation with Katzenbach, he also referred to
possibility that the plane might contain fingerprints which might be used to
4t,v -4-t- identify other persons who were in the plane. He pointed out that thus far we
"'"'l,, _f had not been able to determ.._ the identity of the "MIT" student previously
. 5/i/"3 referred to.

dropped several bombs on the outskirts of Havana last night. These sources
stated this airplane flew over Havana looking for a specific target but when the
pilot failed to locate the assigned target, the bombs were dropped on the out-
skirts. These sources stated the plane reportedly took off from a secret
Carribean base.
The sources indicated the attack reportedly occurred about 2:30a.m.
today (4-26-63) and that the raiding plane apparently penetrated the Cuban air
defenses. It was not known if any antiaircraft fire was directed at the plane.
The sources further stated the plane did not belong to any of the established
anti-cuban groups. Indications were there were probably not more than two
men aboard the plane.
According to the Miami Office, as of 11:55 a. m·., the leading Cuban
radio stations, which are the two most authoritative news stations for the
I gov entioned any incident occurring in According
}?1o'-- to ce, radio station RELOJ, which is a low-
power dcasting news around-the-clock, had made some
mention of this bombing but no details were known.
Our Miami Office ascert.ai!Bl bom the Border Patrol that the Border
Patrol has had under surveillance in Palm Beach International Airport a twin
engine Beechcraft airplane bearing registration number N7373C. This plane
arrived at the airport several days ago from Meriden, Connecticut. The plane
was brought to the airport by Alex Rorke and Geoffrey Sullivan. The two men
had not been seen for several days subsequent to bringing the plane in until last
/1G night. At 7:01p.m. (on -25 -63), these two men, plus an additional
0 I individual believed to (a Swiss alien) took off in this aircraft
without filing a flight plan. airborne, they asked for permission
to head south. Four hours later, at 11:01 p.m., they asked JErmission of the
control at Vero Beac)l to prpceed to Washln!rt.onl. The Patrol
further adviSed that some time pr1or to flie ·taKe off trum .ra.Jl:n Beacn A1rport,
Sullivan the pilot purchased two navigation charts at the airport. One of these
charts .;,as as being for Cuba and the other one Havana. The airplane has
been under scrutiny of the Border Patrol and they have identities of those
who had visited the plane shortly before take off.

Memorandum to Mr. Belmont
RE: ALEXANDER RORKE
..
,:-T
. ·-
'- .. :.._
With reference to Rorke's reported presence in Washington, our
Washington Field Office talked with two individuals who actually heard the speech
made by Rorke at the Washington Hotel this morning. Washington Field Office
has further learned from the Federal Aviation Agency at the Washington National
Airport that the twin engine Beechcraft airplane bearing registration number
N 7373C, which apparently is the plane the Border Patrol had Wlder surveillance
at the Palm Beach InternationalAirport, arrived in Washington, D. C., at the
National Airport _at 8:00a.m. today {4-26-63), having left Vera Beach, Florida,
at 11:00 p.m. last night. The Federal Aviation Agency noted that possibly the
plane had stopped en route since it would not require this amount of time to fly
from Vero Beach to Washington. The plane departed from the Washington
National Airport, destination unknown at 8:37a.m. The plane filed no flight
plan. According to persons interviewed at the Butler Aviation Corpor ation, which
serviced the plane, there were believed to be four persons aboard the plane when
it arrived. There was a discrepancy of information as to whether there were
four on·the plane when it departed or only two. (Since Rorke is known to have
been in Washington this morning after the plane's departure time, it iS probable
that he did not depart with the plane.) According to the Federal Aviation Agency,
the plane was piloted by G. Sullivan, address 886 Lexington Avenue, Waterbury,
Connecticut. The individuals aboard the plane indicated they had come from
Miami, Florida.
ACTION:
Pursuant to Mr. Katzenbach's request for ava.ilable information,
information set forth abare was telephonically furnished to him and he expressed
his appreciation for the information. Mr. Katzenbach was advised further that
Rorke is the same individual whom the ent has been furnishe
siderable information
e, we d out to the Internal Security Division of
that the Bureau would keep the Department advised concerning
Rorke's plans and that since Customs was investigating Rorke, we were making
no active investigation but would furnish the Department with any information
. p 0./JI. ..44- .ad
rece1ved.        

Although we are not actively mvestigating this matter and the .
Department has not requested such action, our Miami Office keeping in cl_ose
touch with its sources an§l will furnish tl;le Bureau information, wh1ch
\ _will be immediately passed on "to the Department.

HERElN p·
OP, TE _&..._:.,,..L...:.L_--4-:
Deputy Attorney General Katzenbach called my office and referred
to the news indicating statements made by Alexander Rorke indicating
that he and three other men dropped homemade bombs on the Cuban Capital
....
..... ,...,. -
last night. Mr. Katzenbach asked if we could furnish him any available information
regarding these statements, particularly whether Rorke is in Washington, D. c.

......
B Rorke, of course, is a free lance newspaperman and photographer
who has been involved in anti-Castro activities for the past several years. He
;._; is a former Bureau clerk, having served as such for about three months in
.J 1951. He is the owner of the boat, "Violyn the m," which was by
0 /'j r;sritish in the Bahamas in early April, 1963

with some 17 anti-
: =;: = .... "=Castro ra.1ders aboard. _

iJ Our Miami Office has furnished the following information concerning
this alleged bombing of Havana last night by Rorke:
Rorke, in making a talk before an Anti-Communist meeting in
" ·.
..
........
"'
a::

0


Washington, D. C., this morning, stated he was aboard an airplane that dropped
five "defensive" bombs on refineries last night (April 25, 1963). According to
news accounts, Rorke explained that "defensive'" was the same term applied by
the Russians to the missiles they installed in Cuba. Rorke reportedly was
introduced on the program as a television photographer. News accoWlts describe
the Anti-Communist meeting as a strategy seminar of a group called the "'Anti-
Communist Liaison." In his address, Rorke stated the bombs dropped '"went
offt' but the refinery tanks did not explode. He stated, "We made two passes.
They can't deny that." Later, Rorke told a reporter he was from New York City
and has been a reporter for NBC in Cuba and was in prison when Castro came to
power. He stated it was his boat, "Violyn m," which was taken recently by the
British.

article, RORKE said that the Beechcraft awned jointly
by him and GEOFFREY SULLIVAN was used only to take
him from New York to Jacksonville before the raid
and back to Washington after the "bombing". He
l
claimed that be had a rendezvous at sea with a PBY,
which was used in the raid.
The May 1963 issue of the "Miami Herald"
carried an article entitled, "U.S. 'Tolerates' RAUL
Insists". This article, bearing a Key West Associated
Press dateline, said that Deputy Prime Minister RAUL
CASTRO of Cuba told Cubans on Wednesday that "If the
United States wasn't in cahoots with the raiders who
bombed a Havana oil refinery, it has at . least shown
tolerance toward the attack". This article said that
RAUL CASTRO, substituting for his older brother, FIDEL,
a t Havana's televised May tay observance,   "The
fact that the criminals received great publicity in the
North American press without any action being taken
against them shows that if there was no comp licity,
there was at least tolerance by the N:>rth American authorities".

characterized the Federation

mostly for social reasons, but who also endeavor t o aid fellow Cuban
exiles in acquiring a means of livelihood in the United States •
..... ,.....__
Set forth below are three interviews of ALEXANDER IRWIN
RORKE, Jr., conducted by the American Broadcasting Co. (ABC)
correspondents in Washington, D. C., on April 26, 1963:
In the interest of brevity, C will hereinafter be utilized
to designate the ABC correspondent and R to designate RORKE.
Interview Number One
R: At five minutes to nine last night, a Cuban rebel
freedom fighter bomber dropped five bombs on the
Esso-She11 Refinery combine at Havana. U. S.
freedom fighter. technicians were aboard with the
Cuban freedom fighter men. I was there as a
reporter. This plane came in and made the drop
at 150 feet and left Havana at a 50 foot altitude.
This was done in cooperation with requests froa
underground sources in Cuba and t he Cubans did it
to indicate to the U. S. Government that there is
cooperation amongst Cuban exile sources - exile forces
rather - and underground people in Cuba and in matters
of actions, the Cubans are united. The bombs dropped
included napalm and pentolite high-explosive bombs.
They are termed defensive bombs in defense of freedom.

to Tegucigalpa, there is no point in searching for the oc-

The persons mentioned above talked freely of their

to find significant records pertaining to Rorke and Sulli-

search mission that may have been used by Rorke .
