CIA to host Society for Military History

The Central Intelligence Agency will host the Society for Military 
History's 63rd Annual Meeting, April 18-21, 1996 at the Key Bridge 
Marriott, Rosslyn, Virginia.

As host, the CIA's Center for the Study of Intelligence has chosen the
theme, "Intelligence and National Security in Peace, Crisis, and War."  
Over the next three years the United States will mark the 50th anniversary 
of the end of the Office of Stratergic Services (OSS) in 1945, Harry
Truman's creation of the Central Intelligence Group in 1946, and its
transformation into the CIA by the National Security Act of 1947.

Prospective papers--which may treat the meeting's theme in any historical
period or area--include such topics as the tactical and strategic uses 
of intelligence, intelligence in defense policy and politics, comparative 
studies of intelligence services, counterintelligence operations and spy 
scandals, controversies between civilian and military intelligence
establishments, the military's role in covert action operations, and the 
variety of intelligence collection methods, such as human intelligence, 
signal and communication intelligence, and satellite imagery.

As in the past, in addition to topics focusing on the meeting's theme,
PAPERS AND PANELS ON OTHER MILITARY HISTORY SUBJECTS IN ANY PERIOD OR 
PLACE ARE ALSO WELCOME.

To propose either a complete session or individual paper you should 
submit a one-page abstract for each paper, a one page statement of 
session purpose for a panel, and a brief vita for each presenter.  
Proposals should be sent by November first to:

Dr. Kevin C. Ruffner, SMH
1996 Program Coordinator,
