1. Later, in 1953, Reich published this material as The Einstein Affair.
2. Peter Mills, prototype of the treacherous little man, would later become one of the prosecutors and judges (!) of Reich.
3. These are the so-called 'control results' adduced by Leopold Infeld to suggest that the anomalous evolution of heat atop Faraday cages was due to thermal convection.
4. The reference here is likely February 18, 1944.
5. Delivered in 1920.
6. Presumably Elsa Stai, though at least two other informers are mentioned in the FOIA files.
7. Actually there is an interesting discrepancy between the FOIA files and the facts related at various times by Reich himself and his wife I. Ollendorff. Release was only ordered in the timeframe given by Smyth's text, but Reich and Ollendorff always maintained that he was released on Jan. 5, following Reich's threat of a hunger-strike. This discrepancy leads one to believe that 'Dr. W.' was only familiar with Reich's files, at the FBI or at State, or possibly G-2, and not with the facts themselves.
8. Presumably, the February 20, 1941 letter.
9. Dr. W is demonstrably wrong , since Reich himself made it perfectly clear on several occasions that the 'bombshell in physics' expression referred to the thermal anomaly atop a Faraday cage.
10. In 1908 and 1916.
11. Later, in 1943, he would become H. Göring's Reich Plenipotentiary in charge of the development of a German atom bomb.
12. This applies only to within a magnetic domain.
13. Apparently, this refers to a possible interpretation of Einstein's General Relativity Theory.
14. At the NRL, Abelson, later editor of Science for 23 years, was in charge of U235 purification by the diffusion process that he invented for the MANHATTAN project. The explosion took place on September 4, 1944.
15. Exact date: April 18th, 1955.
16. This is incorrect. Plantier's postulate was published in the French Airforce magazine FAF, in Sept 1953 - ie three years earlier.
17. See for instance p. 244 of The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects.
18. See p. 113 of the Varo/ONR edition of Jessup's The Case for the UFO.
19. In May 6, 1957.
20. The SS Andrew Furuseth.
21. Corum KL, Corum JF & Daum JX (1994) Tesla's Egg of Columbus, Radar Stealth, the Torsion Tensor, and the 'Philadelphia Experiment'.
22. It is curious that the official biography of L. Infeld has precisely the opposite information, claiming that Infeld worked at the University of Toronto during 1938-1940, ie before Pearl Harbor, and that he worked at the Institute for Advanced Studies (Princeton, N. J. USA), from 1936 to 1950, when he defected. This would make Infeld's stay at Princeton partially concurrent with his stay at the University of Toronto, masking Infeld's 1946 entry into the latter institution.
23. NY Times, March 17, 1950.
24. This is precisely what the Correas claim to have done through their Aetherometric Theory.
25. To the best of our knowledge, there was no case of a U-2 being shot down by the Soviets in 1956. Most likely, the incident Dr. W is referring to is the one that took place in May 1960, when Soviet forces shot down a U-2 piloted by Francis Gary Powers (not Powell). Powers was imprisoned as a spy and later, in February 1962, exchanged for the Soviet spy Rudolph Abel.
