I 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.  

I am a retired Marine. Deeply interested.

Some information can be found at www.ibiblio.org/pha/pha/ as we have some of the investigations online.  I can also get Col. Bicknell's testimony online if you'd like.
