Operation Paperclip: How Nazis Became NASA

Operation Paperclip: How Nazis Became NASA

There have been many events, both big and small, that have shaped U.S. history. Among them, a Facebook post claims, is a secret U.S. program that recruited Nazis.

A modified version of the popular meme of Homer Simpson vanishing into a hedge depicts Simpson bearing a swastika on one shoulder and an arm extended in a Nazi salute. “World War II: ends,” reads the text above, which goes on to suggest former “Nazi scientists” subsequently shifted over to NASA, as illustrated by Simpson reemerging in a T-shirt emblazoned with the agency’s distinctive logo and a red baseball cap with the America flag.

The sentiment within the comments seemed largely accepting of the claim.

“What was the alternative for them?” asked one. “Since herr fuhrer (sic) liked to shoot people…”   

“Art imitates life,” wrote another sharing a GIF featuring images from the Marvel movie franchise of an evil Nazi scientist character and a newspaper clipping with the headline “Germany scientists recruited by U.S.”.   

Operation Paperclip

Operation Paperclip was a secret initiative launched by the U.S. government to recruit German engineers, doctors, physicists, chemists and other scientific experts for U.S. technological advancement, especially in anticipation of the Cold War. Many recruited German scientists did work for NASA and various other government entities. They were never held responsible for their war crimes. 

In 1945, the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency, a subcommittee established by the Joint Intelligence Committee of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was tasked with retrieving German scientists, doctors and engineers who were identified as intellectually vital to the Third Reich. 

Journalist Annie Jacobsen states in a 2014 interview that this was prompted by the Allies’ concerns over Hitler’s potential weapons arsenal. 

“Fall of 1944, right after the Normandy landings, scattered among the Allies’ troops are these little units of scientific intelligence officers and they’re working to find out Hitler’s biological weapons, his chemical weapons and his atomic weapons,” said Jacobsen, author of “Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program to Bring Nazi Scientists to America.” 

These intelligence officers eventually discovered while the atomic weapons program was not as advanced as initially feared, Hitler’s biochemical weapons were. The hunt “for this scientific treasure and ultimately for the scientists themselves” thus ignited Operation Overcast, renamed Paperclip for the paperclips attached to the files of the most “troublesome cases,” Jacobsen writes in her book. 

The U.S. was not alone in this endeavor. Britain, France and especially the Soviet Union sought to enlist these German scientific experts, as well. A U.S.-Soviet technological rivalry marked by the Space Race and Cold War would also serve as a motivation, and justification, for Operation Paperclip’s existence.  

CIA Recruitment

The Gehlen Organization, or the “Org” as it was referred to, was then grafted on to the fledgling CIA at its creation in 1947, and it was often the only eyes and ears on the ground in many Soviet bloc countries after the war. 

It was through the Gehlen Organization that many hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of SS, SD, and Gestapo men came to work for the United States Government. It was the intelligence reports from these Nazi men, that wound up comprising an estimated 70% of all U.S. intelligence on the Soviet Union during the early part of the Cold War.

In 1956, the Org was handed over to West Germany and Gehlen became the first President of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND). He held this post until 1968 before being forced out due to a combination of factors. At his retirement he received one of the highest civilian grade pensions from the West German Republic, and allegedly, a pension from the CIA…

The Operation Explained In Detail


A group of 104 rocket scientists (aerospace engineers) at Fort Bliss, Texas

Operation Paperclip was the United States Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program in which more than 1,500 Germans, primarily scientists but also engineers and technicians, were brought to the United States from Nazi Germany for government employment starting in 1945 and increasing in the aftermath of World War II. It was conducted by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA) and in the context of the burgeoning Cold War
One purpose of Operation Paperclip was to deny German scientific expertise and knowledge to the Soviet Union and the United Kingdom, as well as to inhibit post-war Germany from redeveloping its military research capabilities. A related course of action was taken by the US with regard to Japanese human experimenters employed from Unit 731. The Soviet Union had the somewhat similar yet much more limited Operation Osoaviakhim.

The JIOA’s recruitment of German scientists began after the Allied victory in Europe on May 8, 1945, but U.S. President Harry Truman did not formally order the execution of Operation Paperclip until August 1945. Truman’s order expressly excluded anyone found “to have been a member of the Nazi Party, and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazi militarism.” However, those restrictions would have rendered ineligible most of the leading scientists whom the JIOA had identified for recruitment, among them rocket scientists Wernher von BraunKurt H. Debus, and Arthur Rudolph, as well as physician Hubertus Strughold, each earlier classified as a “menace to the security of the Allied Forces.”

The JIOA worked independently to circumvent President Truman’s anti-Nazi order and the Allied Potsdam and Yalta agreements, creating false employment and political biographies for the scientists. The JIOA also expunged the scientists’ Nazi Party memberships and regime affiliations from the public record. Once “bleached” of their Nazism, the scientists were granted security clearances by the U.S. government to work in the United States. The project’s operational name of Paperclip was derived from the paperclips used to attach the scientists’ new political personae to their “US Government Scientist” JIOA personnel files.

Osenberg List

Nazi Germany found itself at a logistical disadvantage, having failed to conquer the USSR with Operation Barbarossa (June–December 1941), the Siege of Leningrad (September 1941 – January 1944), Operation Nordlicht (“Northern Light”, August–October 1942), and the Battle of Stalingrad (July 1942 – February 1943). The failed conquest had depleted German resources, and its military-industrial complex was unprepared to defend the Großdeutsches Reich (Greater German Reich) against the Red Army‘s westward counterattack.

By early 1943, the German government began recalling from combat a number of scientistsengineers, and technicians; they returned to work in research and development to bolster German defense for a protracted war with the USSR. The recall from frontline combat included 4,000 rocketeers returned to Peenemünde, in northeast coastal Germany.

Overnight, Ph.D.s were liberated from KP duty, masters of science were recalled from orderly service, mathematicians were hauled out of bakeries, and precision mechanics ceased to be truck drivers.
— Dieter K. Huzel, Peenemünde to Canaveral

The Nazi government’s recall of their now-useful intellectuals for scientific work first required identifying and locating the scientists, engineers, and technicians, then ascertaining their political and ideological reliability. Werner Osenberg, the engineer-scientist heading the Wehrforschungsgemeinschaft (Military Research Association), recorded the names of the politically cleared men to the Osenberg List, thus reinstating them to scientific work.

In March 1945, at Bonn University, a Polish laboratory technician found pieces of the Osenberg List stuffed in a toilet; the list subsequently reached MI6, who transmitted it to U.S. Intelligence. Then U.S. Army Major Robert B. Staver, Chief of the Jet Propulsion Section of the Research and Intelligence Branch of the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps, used the Osenberg List to compile his list of German scientists to be captured and interrogated; Wernher von Braun, Nazi Germany’s premier rocket scientist, headed Major Staver’s list.


V-2 rocket launching, Peenemünde, on the north-east Baltic German coast. (1943)

In Operation Overcast, Major Staver’s original intent was only to interview the scientists, but what he learned changed the operation’s purpose. On May 22, 1945, he transmitted to U.S. Pentagon headquarters Colonel Joel Holmes’s telegram urging the evacuation of German scientists and their families, as most “important for [the] Pacific war” effort. Most of the Osenberg List engineers worked at the Baltic coast German Army Research Center Peenemünde, developing the V-2 rocket. After capturing them, the Allies initially housed them and their families in Landshut, Bavaria, in southern Germany.

Beginning on July 19, 1945, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) managed the captured ARC rocketeers under Operation Overcast. However, when the “Camp Overcast” name of the scientists’ quarters became locally-known, the program was renamed Operation Paperclip in November 1945. Despite these attempts at secrecy, later that year the press interviewed several of the scientists.

Regarding Operation Alsos, Allied Intelligence described nuclear physicist Werner Heisenberg, the German nuclear energy project principal, as “worth more to us than ten divisions of Germans.” In addition to rocketeers and nuclear physicists, the Allies also sought chemists, physicians, and naval weaponeers.

Meanwhile, the Technical Director of the German Army Rocket Center, Wernher von Braun, was jailed at P.O. Box 1142, a military-intelligence black site in Fort Hunt, Virginia, in the United States. Since the prison was unknown to the international community, its operation by the US was in violation of the Geneva Convention of 1929, which the United States had ratified. Although Von Braun’s interrogators pressured him, he was not tortured; however, in 1944 another prisoner of war, U-boat Captain Werner Henke, had been shot and killed while climbing the fence at Fort Hunt.

Capture and detention

The Allied zones of occupation in post-war Germany, highlighting the Soviet zone (red), the inner German border (heavy black line) and the zone from which British and American troops withdrew in July 1945 (purple). The provincial boundaries are those of Nazi Germany, before the present Länder (federal states) were established.

Early on, the United States created the Combined Intelligence Objectives Subcommittee (CIOS). This provided the information on targets for the T-Forces that went in and targeted scientific, military and industrial installations (and their employees) for their know-how. Initial priorities were advanced technology, such as infrared, that could be used in the war against Japan; finding out what technology had been passed on to Japan; and finally to halt the research. 

A project to halt the research was codenamed “Project Safehaven”, and it was not initially targeted against the Soviet Union; rather the concern was that German scientists might emigrate and continue their research in countries such as Spain, Argentina or Egypt, all of which had sympathized with Nazi Germany. In order to avoid the complications involved with the emigration of German scientists, the CIOS was responsible for scouting and kidnapping high profile individuals for the deprivation of technological advancements in nations outside of the US.

Much U.S. effort was focused on Saxony and Thuringia, which by July 1, 1945, would become part of the Soviet Occupation zone. Many German research facilities and personnel had been evacuated to these states, particularly from the Berlin area. Fearing that the Soviet takeover would limit U.S. ability to exploit German scientific and technical expertise, and not wanting the Soviet Union to benefit from said expertise, the United States instigated an “evacuation operation” of scientific personnel from Saxony and Thuringia, issuing orders such as:

On orders of Military Government you are to report with your family and baggage as much as you can carry tomorrow noon at 1300 hours (Friday, 22 June 1945) at the town square in Bitterfeld. There is no need to bring winter clothing. Easily carried possessions, such as family documents, jewelry, and the like should be taken along. You will be transported by motor vehicle to the nearest railway station. From there you will travel on to the West. Please tell the bearer of this letter how large your family is.

By 1947 this evacuation operation had netted an estimated 1,800 technicians and scientists, along with 3,700 family members. Those with special skills or knowledge were taken to detention and interrogation centers, such as one code-named DUSTBIN, to be held and interrogated, in some cases for months.

A few of the scientists were gathered up in Operation Overcast, but most were transported to villages in the countryside where there were neither research facilities nor work; they were provided stipends and forced to report twice weekly to police headquarters to prevent them from leaving. The Joint Chiefs of Staff directive on research and teaching stated that technicians and scientists should be released “only after all interested agencies were satisfied that all desired intelligence information had been obtained from them”.

On November 5, 1947, the Office of Military Government of the United States (OMGUS), which had jurisdiction over the western part of occupied Germany, held a conference to consider the status of the evacuees, the monetary claims that the evacuees had filed against the United States, and the “possible violation by the US of laws of war or Rules of Land Warfare”.

The OMGUS director of Intelligence R. L. Walsh initiated a program to resettle the evacuees in the Third World, which the Germans referred to as General Walsh’s “Urwald-Programm” (jungle program), however this program never matured. In 1948, the evacuees received settlements of 69.5 million Reichsmarks from the U.S., a settlement that soon became severely devalued during the currency reform that introduced the Deutsche Mark as the official currency of western Germany.

John Gimbel concludes that the United States put some of Germany’s best minds on ice for three years, therefore depriving the German recovery of their expertise.


Lager Friedland Ankunft der Wissenschaftler aus Suchomi 12. Februar – 16. Februar 1958

German scientists and engineers repatriated from Sukhumi in February 1958. (see Forced labor of Germans in the Soviet Union)

In May 1945, the U.S. Navy “received in custody” Dr. Herbert A. Wagner, the inventor of the Hs 293 missile; for two years, he first worked at the Special Devices Center, at Castle Gould and at Hempstead House, Long Island, New York; in 1947, he moved to the Naval Air Station Point Mugu.

In August 1945, Colonel Holger Toftoy, head of the Rocket Branch of the Research and Development Division of the U.S. Army’s Ordnance Corps, offered initial one-year contracts to the rocket scientists; 127 of them accepted. In September 1945, the first group of seven rocket scientists (aerospace engineers) arrived at Fort Strong, located on Long Island in Boston harbor: Wernher von Braun, Erich W. Neubert, Theodor A. Poppel, August Schulze, Eberhard Rees, Wilhelm Jungert, and Walter Schwidetzky.

Beginning in late 1945, three rocket-scientist groups arrived in the United States for duty at Fort Bliss, Texas, and at White Sands Proving GroundsNew Mexico, as “War Department Special Employees”.

In 1946, the United States Bureau of Mines employed seven German synthetic fuel scientists at a Fischer-Tropsch chemical plant in LouisianaMissouri.

In early 1950, legal U.S. residency for some of the Project Paperclip specialists was effected through the U.S. consulate in Ciudad JuárezChihuahua, Mexico; thus, Nazi scientists legally entered the United States from Latin America.

Eighty-six aeronautical engineers were transferred to Wright Field, where the United States had Luftwaffe aircraft and equipment captured under Operation Lusty (Luftwaffe SecretTechnology).

The United States Army Signal Corps employed 24 specialists – including the physicists Georg Goubau, Gunter Guttwein, Georg Hass, Horst Kedesdy, and Kurt Lehovec; the physical chemists Rudolf Brill, Ernst Baars, and Eberhard Both; the geophysicist Helmut Weickmann; the optician Gerhard Schwesinger; and the engineers Eduard Gerber, Richard Guenther, and Hans Ziegler.

In 1959, 94 Operation Paperclip men went to the United States, including Friedwardt Winterbergand Friedrich Wigand. Throughout its operations to 1990, Operation Paperclip imported 1,600 men, as part of the intellectual reparations owed to the United States and the UK, some $10 billion in patents and industrial processes.

During the decades after they were included in Operation Paperclip, some scientists were investigated because of their activities during World War II. Arthur Rudolph was deported in 1984, but not prosecuted, and West Germany granted him citizenship.

Similarly, Georg Rickhey, who came to the United States under Operation Paperclip in 1946, was returned to Germany to stand trial at the Dora Trial in 1947; he was acquitted, and returned to the United States in 1948, eventually becoming a U.S. citizen. The aeromedical library at Brooks Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, had been named after Hubertus Strughold in 1977. However, it was later renamed because documents from the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal linked Strughold to medical experiments in which inmates from Dachau were tortured and killed.

CIA Operation Paperclip Video

Operation Paperclip was the code name under which the US intelligence and military services extricated scientists from Germany, during and after the final stages of World War II. The project was originally called Operation Overcast, and is sometimes also known as Project Paperclip.

Of particular interest were scientists specialising in aerodynamics and rocketry (such as those involved in the V-1 and V-2 projects), chemical weapons, chemical reaction technology and medicine. These scientists and their families were secretly brought to the United States, without State Department review and approval; their service for Hitler’s Third Reich, NSDAP and SS memberships as well as the classification of many as war criminals or security threats also disqualified them from officially obtaining visas. 

An aim of the operation was capturing equipment before the Soviets came in. The US Army destroyed some of the German equipment to prevent it from being captured by the advancing Soviet Army.

The majority of the scientists, numbering almost 500, were deployed at White Sands Proving Ground, New Mexico, Fort Bliss, Texas and Huntsville, Alabama to work on guided missile and ballistic missile technology. This in turn led to the foundation of NASA and the US ICBM program.

4,000 Nazis Went to Work for the US Government After WWII

Over 4,000 former Nazis went to work for the U.S. government, without the public’s knowledge, to help fight the Soviet Union. Reinhard Gehlen, an intelligence officer for Hitler’s General Staff, was tapped to head the U.S. intelligence program in West Germany to spy on the Russians. At the same time, former Nazi scientists and engineers were welcomed onto American soil. But the extent of these operations is only now becoming clear: In 1998, a law was passed mandating declassification of documents concerning recruitment of former Nazis. CIA AND THE NAZIS examines these files to see how far the U.S. went in recruiting its former enemy to fight its new one.

The truth is, thousands of former Nazis, some of whom committed atrocities, went to work for the United States government without the public’s knowledge. During the war, their crimes ranged from overseeing slave labor camps to sending orphans to their deaths. After the war, they were on the US payroll either as scientists in America or as intelligence agents in Europe.”

Many Nazis, some of whom committed war atrocities, such as overseeing death camps, were imported into the USA. The US government was willing to hide those Nazi secrets and their ID’s from Americans. The US government was willing to hire and pay money to anyone who had what they wanted, such as nuclear information. Thousands of 110% Nazi’s were imported into the USA after the end of World War II. What effect did the importation of these radical individuals have on the US, and on the for profit military industrial complex?

Members of SS Joined US Military via CIA After World War II

At the end of WWII, members of the SS started to approach US forces and offer information for sale. Nazi General Galen was one of those experts who had Nazi intelligence files. He turned himself in to US forces two weeks after the Germans surrendered. Because he knew a lot about the Soviets, the CIA wanted him. He played on US fears of the Soviets. 

General Galen claimed that the Soviets were power hungry, not to be trusted, land greedy and had an army that should be feared. General Galen and ten of his staff were smuggled into the USA, right after the war and he was put on the CIA payroll. He reinvented himself and claimed that he was not really a Nazi, and that he could play intelligence officer for the CIA, against the Soviet Union. He ended up having a staff of hundreds, made up mostly of former Nazis. 

Stalin made some moves in 1946 that scared the US military, so they started courting Nazi intelligence officers and recruiting them. Before this point, they were hunting Nazis to put them in jail and charge them with war crimes. Now the bigger fear was the Soviets, so the Nazis turned into the best friends and were put on the payroll of the US government, specifically of the CIA, much like Communist China is now the best friend and most favored trading nation of the US today.

A Top Secret program called Project Paper Clip was put into effect after WWII by the CIA. War criminals were supposed to be avoided and excluded from this super secret nuclear information import of Nazis into this US program. But when most of the Nazi scientists and other experts failed this war criminals test, the CIA recruiters simply falsified the Nazi’s files and sent those to the State Dept. urging them to hire these criminals, just so that the Soviets could not have them.

CIA-Nazis: Terror and Murder Incorporated

Once the war ended, thousands of SS men, murderers, torturers, killers of women, children and babies, were recruited by Dulles, including, as admitted by the CIA on April 29, 2001 (11), Klaus Barbie, the infamous “Butcher of Lyon.” Barbie was eventually convicted of crimes against humanity by a French court.Navy Barracks in Coronado, CA: After World War II, the CIA eventually split into two factions, one which was controlled by Nazis/fascists that had allied with the Klan’s political engine. By 1967, the Nazification of the CIA and Republican Party was complete, and they were so deeply enmeshed in the political establishment, and in the military and intelligence community they could build navy barracks like this one.

That George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, was involved in financing the Nazis isn’t contested nor is the fact that he was part of a criminal cabal that actively sought to impose a fascist coup in America in the 30s (the Business Plot). Under George W. Bush, however, this fascist state– one completely controlled by Wall Street– that Prescott Bush envisioned came into being with the passage of the Patriot Act.

British Bankers and House of Windsor, UK Royalty Backed Hitler and His Racist Belief System

The oligarchical Bush family of generational treason reaching back to the namesake of the two Bush presidents, George Herbert Walker. The way we do anything is the way we do everything. 

In the same manner that Prescott Bush traded with the Nazi industrial complex against the United States during WWII, so too did both Bush presidents with the Carlyle Trading Group and Bin Laden family. Unbeknownst to the Saudi Arabian 911 hijackers, was that a number of those same enemy combatants were also psychologically conditioned CIA jackal assets.

What Will the Long-Term Consequences Be, of Developing and Building Nuclear Weapons In Every Country Globally?

Ethically however, no matter who ended up inventing it first, every country, including the US, needs to consider the implications and long term consequences on seven future generations of nuclear bombs and nuclear weapons including depleted uranium weapons. What will happen in the future, if each country on Earth with nuclear weapons uses nuclear bombs on civilians cities? The US has already done this multiple times, and continues to do so by using depleted uranium weapons and ammunition, and exporting nuclear power reactors to all kinds of other countries illegally.

Isn’t the US acting much like the Nazis did, in a way that mimics their actions of global militarism and global conquest? The US has thousands of military bases all around the world. The US often expresses it’s power in a way that does not lead to healthy democracy in the country touched by that power.

One Consequence: Deception, Secrecy, and Corruption Inside the CIA, Military Industrial Complex

Could the importation of Nazis into the social, cultural and economic fabric of the United States have infected it with a form of corporate driven Nazi Fascism, inside of the military industrial corporate and political complex?
Nazis did not think long term, and neither does the US military industrial complex or the nuclear industry. The Nazis thought only about short term results, as do the huge global corporations that make up the military industrial complex, as well as a huge percentage of everyday commerce inside the US. 

Bottom line, these huge corporations have gotten very good at extracting wealth from everyone, while transferring risk back to them, and keeping all of the profits, getting corporate subsidies, while paying zero taxes. It is a win win win game for corporations, and lose, lose, lose for individuals and communities.

These huge corporations have undue influence on politics, the media and politicians, just to name a few. The consequences are being experienced by billions of people globally, but not many people know about the consequences due to the effective PR and lobbying cash infusion campaign that these corporations put out in many different directions.

This is happening at a rate of about one nuclear accident every couple of years. There are many more nuclear and radioactive accidents, leaks and mishaps than people realize. 

The Reality

Hitler rose to power with the help of bankers and corporations from the US and the UK. He could not have built up his huge war machine except with their help and support. This support continued on even into the days AFTER the US and UK declared war on Germany. Corporations and bankers do not care who wins or loses in war, and they make sure that they make a PROFIT off of both sides. War is very profitable, much more so than ordinary commerce. For the same reason, bankers are also involved in drug money laundering, because it is VERY PROFITABLE.

The appearance of freedom and democracy is maintained on the surface, so that people can believe in something. Meanwhile, underneath, these very dark forces intent on destruction, killing, suffering, racism, and profit are holding all of the reigns of power. The 1 percent manipulate the news, events, and create false flag attacks if needed, in order to start wars that they then profit from, ON BOTH SIDES.

Medical doctors, Christian churches and psychiatrists were all perverted and corrupted, allowing Nazism to flourish in Germany. They are all vulnerable to abuse, misuse and corruption, especially when lots of money is involved, as it is today. The fact is that Nazism or Fascism is not an isolated extreme example, but rather, it is a common place, every day thing that happens all around the world, especially in countries where huge corporate monopolies exert huge financial, political and mass media pressure on every profession and every community.

The Science Of Sustainable Health needs to be taught in all schools, from grade school to college and graduate universities. The consequence of not doing this is the extinction of the human race, as it races towards doom, imposed by short term PROFIT thinking with no thoughts regarding consequences of actions taken in haste and only for money.

The American Indians believed that anyone who had greed/short term profit as a motivation in life was mentally ill, and they were right. 

The Nazis and Their Contributions

By the fall of 1945, German scientists starting arriving on U.S. soil. Not all the men recruited were Nazis or SS officers but the most prominent and valued among them were, having worked either directly with Hitler or leading members of the Nazi Party, such as Heinrich Himmler and Herman Göring. 

Wernher von Braun, a rocket engineer, was instrumental in developing the first U.S. ballistic missile, the Redstone, and later the Saturn V rocket while serving as director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. As a Nazi ideologue and member of the SS, he traveled to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he “handpicked slaves to work for him as laborers,” said Jacobsen in a 2014 interview with NPR. 

Hubertus Strughold, a physiologist and medical researcher, headed the German Air Force Institute of Aviation Medicine, known for its torturous medical experiments on inmates from the Dachau concentration camp. Strughold claimed ignorance of any such activity until after the war, yet he appeared among a list of 95 doctors at an October 1942 conference discussing their findings. In the U.S., he was chief scientist of the aerospace medical division at Brooks Air Force and has since been credited as the father of space medicine. 

Walter Schreiber, a former Nazi general, also oversaw inhumane medical experiments involving bioweapons that resulted in countless of deaths. Following the war, he was captured by the Soviets but defected to the U.S. He worked for various government entities before finally settling in Texas at the Air Force School of Aviation Medicine, Jacobsen writes. 

While Schreiber would later serve as a witness during the Nuremberg trials, he, von Braun, Strughold and the rest of their fellow Nazis brought to the U.S. would never be held accountable for their own atrocities. Operation Paperclip remained secret throughout much of the Cold War.

The Army Origins of Operation Paperclip

AMCOM Historical Office file photo TRANSFER CEREMONY- Maj. Gen. August Schomburg, commander of the Army Ordnance Missile Command, speaks at ceremonies July 1, 1960 transferring 4,700 civilian employees and $100 million in buildings and equipment to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

This was like a base realignment and closure move – only it all happened within the confines of Redstone Arsenal. Fifty years ago, on July 1, 1960, the Army formally lost its space-related missions. Some 4,700 civilian employees, including the von Braun team, and $100 million worth of buildings and equipment at Redstone Arsenal and Cape Canaveral were transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

“This was the equivalent of a BRAC because you’re moving stuff,” Mike Baker, command historian for the Aviation and Missile Command, said. “As a lesson for today, that transition happened and everything kept moving forward. This community is used to change.”

The Army built the foundation for the space program. From Jan. 31, 1958 to July 1, 1960, the Army had a series of pioneering efforts in space. During the 30 months from the successful launch of Explorer I to the formal transfer ceremony which officially opened the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center, the Army did the following: placed four Earth satellites into orbit; launched the Free World’s first lunar probe and first solar satellite; launched three primates into space, two of which were recovered alive; initiated an effort on a 1.5-million-pound-thrust booster being designed for a lunar exploration vehicle; and began work on the launch vehicle which would carry the first men into space.

“Before Marshall was started, we the Army had put the first satellite up, Explorer I,” Baker said. “Early work on the Saturn, people don’t really know, was started by the Army.”

The transfer of 4,700 people and $100 million in buildings and equipment to NASA represents “probably about three-quarters of a billion in today’s dollars,” Baker said. “That’s a pretty massive effort going on. The Army here essentially had to rebuild in that we still had a mission to do.”

But the Army got it done. And the mission moved forward. It’s gone from the days of the old Army Ballistic Missile Agency to today’s Aviation and Missile Command and other members of Team Redstone.

“We’ve always been bringing people into the community and moving forward,” Baker said. “The community changes, has embraced change. And I think that’s a remarkable story in itself. As Mr. (legendary spokesman Dave) Harris used to say, we took what we learned in the space program and adapted it to the other missions we have here.”

Joseph M. Jones was Harris’ counterpart at Marshall Space Flight Center where Jones served as the head of Marshall public affairs.

“I went on NASA payroll Jan. 1, 1960, where NASA was formed July 1st, so I was there from the beginning,” Jones said. “I was the third employee of NASA in Alabama.”

Dave Newby was hired as the NASA liaison in October 1959. Newby hired Scott Little as his assistant. Jones was working at Redstone in the Army public affairs office, then called the public information office, before transferring to NASA. He arrived at Redstone in May 1956 and worked three and a half years for the Army before moving to NASA.

“I sat in (Wernher) von Braun’s office for three months until there was a public affairs office established within Marshall,” Jones said. “I couldn’t imagine it’s been 50 years.”

Jones was the first head of the news branch at Marshall from 1960-74. After that he became the director of Marshall public affairs when his boss, Bart Slattery, retired. Jones stayed in that position until he took early retirement in 1982; and he resides in Huntsville.

“It was a marvelous occasion to be a part of such a world-changing event,” Jones said.

Ed Buckbee, 73, of Huntsville, also experienced that history. He left the Army to join NASA’s public affairs office in 1961 at Marshall Space Flight Center and subsequently became the first director of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. In 1959 he arrived at Redstone as a second lieutenant. Two years later, then 1st Lt. Buckbee resigned his active duty commission and transferred to NASA. The West Virginia native was on loan to the project to build a space museum outside Redstone’s gates from 1968-70 and became the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s first director when it opened in March 1970. He retired in 1994 and has written a book, “50 Years of Rockets and Spacecraft,” and produced a documentary DVD, The Rocket Man, on Dr. Wernher von Braun.

“A lot of people don’t realize Saturn (rocket) really was a product of the missile command,” Buckbee said. “The Army did satellites, they launched the first animals with a life support program, and they began the nation’s manned space flight program.”

Toftoy and von Braun

He remembers hearing von Braun talk about the difficult decision the German rocket team members faced when leaving the Army work force. The Army had made it possible for them to find a new home and had given them the resources to conduct their research. “For them to leave the Army was not an easy decision,” Buckbee said.

He also marveled at the foresight of President Eisenhower, a career military man who signed the executive order to create a civilian agency to run the U.S. space program. This offset competition among the military branches.

But the Army deserves credit for launching the space program. General officers like John Medaris and Holger Toftoy were among von Braun’s mentors. Buckbee described Medaris as “the George Patton of the missile community,” and Toftoy as “a strategist who came up with the idea of Operation Paperclip (the program used to recruit the German scientists for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II).” 

“I think the Army deserves an immense amount of credit for laying the foundation for missile defense,” Buckbee said. “And if we had not had that special effort, we could very well be speaking Russian today.”
