Keenan was a Harvard student at the time Snyder was a spotter for REDSKIN. Keenan was among the first students to study in the Soviet Union between 1959-1961 as part of the new Student Exchange Program coordinated by the State Department. Keenan was eventually declared persona non grata and forced to leave the Soviet Union during 1961. Keenan is now a historian of Russian history, and a past director of Harvard's Dumbarton Oaks museum and research center in Washington D.C.. He should contribute what he knows under oath: See Newman, pp. 1-2, 6; also see webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Lo6Q3-_1cqoJ:en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/8997789+dumbarton+%22edward+keenan%22&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a

When Snyder and his colleague Ed Freers prepared the short October 31 report on Oswald's visit to the State Department, with copies to the Navy and many other agencies, they included a reference to Oswald's U-2 experience without using the dreaded word "U-2". They wrote:
"(Oswald) says has offered Soviets any information he has acquired as enlisted radar operator. In view Petrulli case we propose delay executing renunciation until Soviet action known or dept. advises." www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh18/html/WH_Vol18_0060a.htm
