Frank Olson Legacy Project

My father, Frank Olson, died in November of 1953 under circumstances that remain both obscure and controversial nearly half a century later.

This Internet site is dedicated to exploring those circumstances and the political and ethical issues embedded in them - issues of paramount importance to the maintenance of an open democratic society.

The aim here will be to provide a laboratory for the conversion of the secretive, labyrinthine system that led to my father's death into the expanding, open network of the Web. I think of this site, therefore, as Frank Olson's window.
