This adds: Anderson, Robert O.
Oil Wildcatter/ President, Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies
United States http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Orville_AndersonIn 1963, Anderson merged his company into the Atlantic Refining Company of Philadelphia
. In 1966, as Atlantic's chairman and chief executive, he merged with Richfield Oil of Los Angeles, forming ARCO. Headquarters were based in Dallas.In 1967 largest oil field yet found in North America at Prudhoe Bay on Alaska's North Slope
Anderson also led the seven-company effort to develop the Alaskan oil pipeline in 1974
In 1941, he went to New Mexico with $50,000 in borrowed money and purchased control of an old oil refinery. His timing was fortuitous; when the United States entered World War II
later that year, demand for oil escalated. Soon he was selling gasoline to air bases throughout the Southwest and diesel for the atom bomb project at Los Alamos National Laboratory
By the end of the decade, he owned several refineries, built a pipeline system, and became a wildcatter. He entered the top ranks of independent oil producers in 1957 with a major find at the Empire-Abo field in New Mexico.In 1962 he merged his operations with Atlantic Refining
. In 1966, as Atlantic's chairman and chief executive, he struck a deal with Richfield that resulted in a new company, Arco.
In 1967, his persistence on oil exploration led to Arco's discovery of the largest pool of usable crude oil in North America, at Prudhoe Bay on Alaska's North Slope.http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/06/business/06anderson.html?_r=1&n=Top/Reference/Times%20Topics/People/M/Martin,%20DouglasBeginning in 1957
, he assembled a farming and ranching enterprise exceeding a million acres, rivaled only by the renowned King Ranch. He, David Rockefeller and another partner once owned another million acres in Brazil
He favored lively discussion and wide-ranging research, serving for many years as chairman of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies
, which convenes business executives and others to discuss world problems. He helped found the Worldwatch Institute
in Washington to monitor global environmental trends, the International Institute for Environment and Development in London
to study environmental and food issues and the John Muir Institute of the Environment in Davis, Calif
He was an oilman who warned of global warming caused by fossil-fuel consumption in the 1980s
, and more than once advocated higher taxes on his industry
He was also a Reagan Republican who held many top nonelected posts in the Republican Party
and favored nuclear power and a smaller federal government.He rescued two flailing publications, The Observer, a British newspaper, in 1977, and Harper’s magazine in 1980
.In 1982, he negotiated the first American offshore drilling operation in China.Atlantic Richfield was bought by BP
seven years ago. [year 2000]
[His father] Hugo A. Anderson and the former Hilda Nelson. Hugo was a prominent banker who, Robert said, was one of the first to lend money against proven but untapped oil reserves.

| ----------------------------------Acheson, Deanhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dean_Acheson
His most famous decision was convincing Truman to intervene, in June 1950, in the Korean War. Historians have argued, "Dean Acheson was more than 'present at the creation' of the Cold War; he was a primary architect
...Acheson was instrumental in framing U.S. policy toward Vietnam
, persuading Truman to dispatch aid and advisors to French forces in Indochina, though in 1968 he finally counseled President Lyndon B. Johnson to negotiate for peace with North Vietnam. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, President John F. Kennedy called upon Acheson for advice, bringing him into the executive committee (ExComm), a strategic advisory group.Acheson refused to 'turn his back on Alger Hiss' when the latter was accused of being a Communist spy, and convicted (of perjury for denying he was a spy
He retired as secretary of state on Jan. 20, 1953, and served on the Yale Board of Trustees

, who capped a lifetime Foreign Service career with nearly 12 years as the United States Ambassador to Israel from 1961 to 1973Israel gets the Bomb with Bilderberger help
Although the United States government did not encourage or approve of the Israeli nuclear program, it also did nothing to stop it. Walworth Barbour, US ambassador to Israel from 1961-73, the bomb program's crucial years, primarily saw his job as being to insulate the President from facts which might compel him to act on the nuclear issue
, alledgedly saying at one point that "The President did not send me there to give him problems. He does not want to be told any bad news." After the 1967 war, Barbour even put a stop to military attachés' intelligence collection efforts around Dimona. Even when Barbour did authorize forwarding information, as he did in 1966 when embassy staff learned that Israel was beginning to put nuclear warheads in missiles, the message seemed to disappear into the bureaucracy and was never acted upon.

Eisenhower asked Bruce to write a report on the CIA. It was presented to Eisenhower on 20th December, 1956. Bruce argued that the CIA's covert actions were "responsible in great measure for stirring up the turmoil and raising the doubts about us that exists in many countries in the world today." Bruce was also highly critical of Operation Mockingbird.
He argued: "what right have we to go barging around in other countries buying newspapers and handling money to opposition parties or supporting a candidate for this, that, or the other office."http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg03306.htmlAilsa Mellon
, the sister of Paul Mellon, married David K. Bruce
, a young foreign service officer. Soon after their marriage, Ailsa Mellon Bruce was stricken by an undiagnosed illness that rendered her, in the words of her husband, a "semi-invalid." They were eventually divorced, and David Bruce went on to a distinguished diplomatic career. After the divorce, Ailsa became almost a recluse. At one time, she owned three apartments in New York, two houses in Connecticut, an estate on Long Island, and a residence in Palm Beach. Ailsa apparently took a great deal of interest in her philanthropies and her art collection, much of which she donated to the National Gallery of Art. When she died in 1969, she left the bulk of her estate, valued at $570 million, to her Avalon Foundation

He held a variety of positions at the Public Service Electric and Gas Company in New Jersey, before being named in 1941 as chief of the Equipment Production Branch at the U.S. War Production Board. In mid-1943 he became chief engineer of power plants for Detroit Edison, but was granted leave of absence to become chief of public utilities for Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force
with responsibility for rebuilding electrical power plants in Europe. ...After the war, Cisler returned to Detroit Edison as chief engineer
, where he subsequently became executive vice president (1948), president (1951), chief executive officer (1954), and chairman of the board (1964).
He was active in the early development of nuclear power, serving as executive secretary to the Atomic Energy Commission's Industrial Advisory Group in 1947-1948

We also talked of the Cisler report
. Neil McElroy had asked Walker Cisler
to look into the problems of scheduling and managing our national rocket launching complexes and the associated tracking stations throughout the world. This is a very costly business and we have had the usual pulling and hauling between the armed services.
NASA has its own rather small and economically-operated launching facility at Wallops Island, Virginia, which is available to anyone and apparently represents very little in the way of a problem. Walker, a devoted public servant and a determined man, had made up his mind pretty well before he started the study that  the real precedent for a solution lay in the War Production Board
.14 He proposes to set up an office reporting directly to the secretary of defense that will control and manage - he avoids using some of these words - the country's launch and tracking facilities... Cisler has gone to the vice president
and seems to be talking to a great many people, thus making a sensible solution impossiblehttp://history.nasa.gov/SP-4105/ch14.htmJANUARY 1961
Tuesday, January 3:
Hugh learned from Thomas's assistant that Kennedy had responded
, thanking him for the letter and recommendation, saying that he was leaving the space business entirely to Lyndon Johnson
. All we know is that Lyndon has been designated by Kennedy to chair the Space Council....Actually, the law would have to be changed if Lyndon were to be chairman
of the council. As it presently reads, the president is chairman
and the attorney general ruled last year that we could not have a regular meeting of the Space Council unless the president were in the chair.
Tuesday, January 10
George Low came in to talk of Mercury and the delay in launch to 31 January.3 Then came the evening with the Hoover Medal Award Dinner at the Statler where we were the guests of Walker Cisler [president of the Detroit Edison Company].
A small party preceded it - cocktails, etc. - and we found ourselves in pleasant company. Ike got the medal
after a statistically-loquacious ex-historian of the Army gave what turned out to be an interesting story of the engineering achievements of Ike's forces in Europe after D-Day in 1944. Ike was very good - informal but pertinent in his remarks - bringing in enough of the human interest stories to keep the engineering societies a bit humble. It was this group that gave the medal, of course. No news from the Kennedy administration

By the 1960s, as the conservative wing assumed more and more power within the Republican Party, Dewey removed himself further and further from party matters. When the Republicans in 1964 gave Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona, Taft's successor as the conservative leader, their presidential nomination, Dewey declined to even attend the Convention; it was the first Republican Convention he had missed since 1936.[

By the early 1960s Dewey's law practice had made him into a multimillionaire.

At that time, Washington's alarm over Cuba was much like the more recent panic after 9/11
. The Kennedy White House was determined to prevent another communist regime in the hemisphere, and Robert Kennedy, as attorney general, was taking a strong interest in several anti-communist approaches, including the Office of Public Safety.
When Brazil seemed to tilt leftward after President Joao Goulart assumed power in 1961, the Kennedy administration grew increasingly troubled. Robert Kennedy traveled to Brazil to tell Goulart he should dismiss two of his Cabinet members, and the office of Lincoln Gordon, John Kennedy's ambassador to Brazil, became the hub for CIA efforts to destabilize Goulart's government

His personality and position brought him possessions, as well as entry into an eclectic, prestigious social circle, filled not only with bankers, but with businessmen, politicians, diplomats, artists, writers, and musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. According to his wife's journal, they entertained at least eight or 10 times each week in their two homes
Sometimes this "entertainment" consisted of small informal affairs
with three or four couples, such as the Lindberghs and Rockefellers

; Thomas Watson, president of IBM
; Allen Dulles, head of the CIA

Jay's most unexpected recognition came in 1964, when his name appeared on the front of the New York Times Book Review in an article on Ernest Hemingway's Moveable Feast.

Kennedy, since the Innaugural Address and beyond, had been asking Americans and American business to excercise restraint to enable the United States to meet it's obligations and strengthen it's economy. The Steel Workers of America agreed to hold off their demands for higher wages if the Steel Companies, on their part, would not raise the price of steel. The workers kept their end of the bargain, the companies did not, ordering a price increase after a strike was averted.
