Artifact of the Week: Identification Card of Allen W. Dulles

New York – Rashad – Alkhader -Free Yemen Eye -From News CIA

Allen W. Dulles started his career in the U.S. Diplomatic Service in 1916 and joined the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during WWII. In 1951, Dulles joined the newly created Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). President Eisenhower appointed him CIA Director in 1953.

During his tenure, Dulles approved the development of the U-2 spy plane. He also conceived the CIA’s Original Headquarters Building located at Langley, Virginia, and oversaw its construction. Dulles never occupied the building, however, because he retired in 1961 – just days before construction was completed. He is the longest serving director in CIA’s history.
