A Life in Intelligence - The Richard Helms Collection

Welcome to the new CIA Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Electronic Reading Room.  Be sure to bookmark this site, and note that our former URL will be decommissioned in the near future.

This collection of material by and about Richard Helms as Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) and Ambassador to Iran comprises the largest single release of Helms-related information to date. The documents, historical works and essays offer an unprecedented, wide-ranging look at the man and his career as the United States' top intelligence official and one of its most important diplomats during a crucial decade of the Cold War. From mid-1966, when he became DCI, to late 1976, when he left Iran, Helms dealt directly with numerous events whose impact remains evident today and which are covered in the release.
