Posted by ROGER SORENSON on Aug. 15 2001,4:30I am interested in finding out about Colonel George W. Bicknell's participation in the Intelligence field during the Pearl Harbor attack.
His wife, Dorothy Bicknell, a 91 yearl old widow, is a personal friend. She is looking for volume 2 of an Federal inventigation her husband, George was involved in. She has 19 other volumes. I will attempt to decipher which of the 8/9 investigations she is inquiring about.
Also interested in his involvement in the build-up of Wake Island in 1935 for Pan American Clipper.
