    Hi Jay,
    For another purpose I just googled Charles Bohannan and noticed you posted on SWJ some time back, looking for information on Charles, Ed Lansdale and Ramon Magsaysay (HUK rebellion). You had posted on SWJ forum. My Uncle, a foreign correspondent, was good friends with all three. In going through his papers a few years back I recall savings some papers from Ed to read later. While the papers are not at my fingertips, I could put you in touch with the adopted daughter of Charles Bohannan who should have all his papers. If you are still researching the topic, let me know. Todd

    Hi Jay,

    Was also acquainted with the Bohannons as a boy and a much younger man. I spent several months at ARBOSO in the mid-70’s. Did you ever complete his Biography? The were the most interesting people I’ve ever met!
