George Mcghee Autographed Letter Signed & Dated July 23, 1993 To Jfk Researcher

You are offerding on an original letter from the Number 3 man at the State Department under President John F. Kennedy to JFK researcher dated July 26, 1993. George Crew McGhee disliked Robert F. Kennedy and vice-versa. McGhee was very close to Vice-President Lyndon Baines Johnson. He had an office in the CIA-trust Republic National Bank Building and volume 2 of the George de Mohrenschildt Story is dedicated to him. He writes on Charles Wrightsman of Houston and Palm Beach. Wrightsman's daughter committed suicide because of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy's criminal charges against her husband. Allen Dulles' was the personal lawyer for Wrightsman of Palm Beach. Wrightsman, Dulles and McGhee were all tied to Lee Harvey Oswald's closest friend : George de Mohrenschildt. De Mohrenschildt had an office in the same building as McGhee - and when de Mohrenschidlt wrote to President JFK, he mentioned "his friend George McGhee." McGhee admits working for Pantepec Oil for three years, which was owned by William F. Buckley, Sr. who also employed George de Mohrenschildt. McGhee wrote this author that he had no trouble with the CIA removing certain foreign leaders. McGhee was a watch dog for wealthy oilmen, especially from Texas, it may be that he did not care for the Kennedy's because they wanted to remove the Oil Depletion Allowance which was authored in the 1920s by Wrightsman's father. Charles Wrightsman wrote his own son out of the will and this seller was given a copy of the will by Wrightsman's lawyers. Because of McGhee oilmen saved tons of money.

Leesburg, Virginia Nationality American Profession Diplomat
George Crews McGhee (March 10, 1912 – July 4, 2005) was an oilman and a career diplomat in the United States foreign service.

McGhee was born on March 10, 1912 in Waco, Texas, the son of a Waco banker. He studied at the University of Oklahoma, graduating with a degree in geology in 1933. For a time McGhee worked for Conoco, working on a crew that made the first oil discovery on the Gulf Coast through reflection seismology. He was awarded a Rhodes scholarship, gaining a doctorate in physical sciences from Oxford University in 1937. Back in the United States he became vice president of the National Geophysical Company, where he managed reflection seismology surveys in Cuba.[1] On his return to Texas, McGhee found employment with Everette Lee DeGolyer's oil services company DeGolyer and MacNaughton, scouting oilfields and marrying DeGolyer's daughter Cecilia. McGhee described Cecilia as "the most beautiful and richest girl in Texas."[2] In 1940 McGhee established his own company, the McGhee Production Company, and soon discovered a major oil field at Lake Charles, Louisiana, which made his fortune.[2][3]

At the beginning of World War II McGhee was a member of the staff of the Office of Production Management and a member of the War Production Board. Commissioned into the U.S. Navy, McGhee served as a naval air intelligence officer on the staff of Army Air Force General Curtis E. LeMay, for which he was awarded the Legion of Merit.[2]

Diplomatic career

Following the war he was recruited to the U.S. State Department by then-Undersecretary of State William L. Clayton, joining in 1946. McGhee initially traveled on behalf of the State Department to disburse a fund of $400 million in economic and military aid to Greece and Turkey, as well as other economic aid in Africa and the Middle East. He served as U.S. Ambassador to Turkey in 1952–1953, where he supported their successful offer for NATO membership. While in Turkey the McGhees lived in Alanya in an Ottoman Villa they named "Turkish Delight."[2]

McGhee was instrumental in dealings with the Republic of the Congo and the Dominican Republic in the early 1960s. From November 1961 to April 1963, he served as the third ever Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, during the Kennedy Administration (later to be replaced by W. Averell Harriman). President Kennedy had left this office vacant since January 1961 until McGhee, was persuaded to take the position. Following that position, he was again named Ambassador to West Germany from 1963 to 1968.[2]

Retirement

After retiring in 1969, McGhee served on corporate boards of Mobil, Procter and Gamble and Trans World Airlines. In retirement McGhee wrote a semi-autobiographical novel, entitled The Dance of the Billions: A Novel About Texas, Houston, and Oil (1990), whose lack of success was attributed by his family to its puritanical tone.[3] His 2001 memoir was entitled I Did It This Way.[2]

In 1989, McGhee donated his villa in Alanya, Turkey to Georgetown University. Today it is known as the McGhee Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies, and welcomes students each spring. His estate, Farmer's Delight in Loudoun County, Virginia, is operated by the McGhee Foundation as a museum, research center and meeting facility.[4] It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[5][6]

McGhee died of pneumonia on July 4, 2005 at the age of 93 at Loudoun Hospital Center in Leesburg, Virginia.[3]
