"Between 1956-57, Snyder was used as a spotter of students that might be going to the Soviet Union at Harvard by Nelson Brickham of the Soviet Russian Division within the Directorate of Plans. The apparent purpose was to recruit them into what was known as Project Redskin: Oswald 201 file, Volume 31, NARA No.: 104-10001-10138, Comment Regarding Article Alleging Oswald was Interviewed by CIA Employees.

Brickham was responsible for running black propaganda, false flag recruitments and the gathering of information on Soviet missile silos: Douglas Valentine, "Documents from the Phoenix Program".

On April 10, Cord Meyer sent a cable to Western Europe expressing interest in Johnson, right after Johnson applied for a visa in Paris: John Newman, Oswald and the CIA, (Carroll & Graf, New York, 1995), p. 65. Includes a copy of Meyer's cable.

Shortly after Cord Meyer expressed interest in her, a request went out on 4/28 seeking approval for Johnson to become a "REDSKIN traveler and informant... "SR/2 will have primary responsibility of handling agent": Request for Investigation and Approval, 4/28/63, HSCA Segregated CIA Collection microfilm - reel 9, NARA Record Number: 104-10173-10145.
