William Stephenson is a person of special interest to me, as a Canadian. So little is known or published about him. So many have taken their secrets to the grave. http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.com/articles/sir-william-stephenson I only recently learned that he invented the wireless Fax (the wired fax having been invented in the late 1800's.) This, and other business ventures, turned into a substantial fortune for him - which he reputedly used to finance Camp X etc throughout the war. This financial fortune though, from what I have read, was generated by selling this product to only trusted allies (and businesses.) - I having read that it (wireless long distance fax, long before Satellites came into play) was a substantial advantage for allied governments inter-communications throughout the war. My first information request is this: Has anyone here read: H. Montgomery Hyde's The Quiet Canadian? (1962) (British Editon) US edition called: Room 3603: The Story Of the British Intelligence Center in New York during World War 2 by H. Montgomery Hyde (1963) The reason I ask is that: 1. Used copies are selling for well over $100.00 right now. (I'm a huge bookworm, but really!!!) 2. An early 60's edition would be so restricted by the Official Secrets Act that I doubt anything substanial would found in it. A good book critique from some of our Intelligence Forum experts here would be most appreciated. Secondly: A substantial thread here, chock ablock with informative replies on the life and times of Intrepid would be the highlight of my "life" here. Thanks! Fred Wilson, Canada.
