Essay on Tom Dooley
10 pages 1987 - Heavily annotated and corrected throughout by the author and apparently unpublished. Tom Dooley - "The nearer (sic) I have ever come to believing in a hero in high school" (sic) - was a doctor and highly respected officer in the U.S. Navy, from which he resigned in 1956 following allegations of being homosexual. He devoted the rest of his life to charitable works in Laos and Vietnam although he was also reputed to be working with the CIA, but evidently not as an agent. A life-long Roman Catholic, he was visited by Cardinal Spellman a few days before his untimely death from a malignant melanoma in 1961. A subsequent move for his sanctification was not successful. Signed and dated by the author at the top of the first page.
