165th Infantry Parade, Fifth Avenue, 1919Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: 165th Infantry Parade, Fifth Avenue, 1919

Description: Heading the 165th Infantry (old 69th New York) in a parade on Fifth Avenue, on April 28, 1919, is William J. Donovan William Joseph Donovan; AKA: Wild Bill; January 1, 1883-February 8, 1959), center left, U.S. soldier, attorney and intelligence officer. Donovan, who headed the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) during WWII, was called the "Father of American Intelligence," and the "Father of Central Intelligence." Donovan won fame (and the Congressional Medal of Honor) when, with the rank of major (later colonel), he led the 1st Battalion of the 165th Regiment (the old "Fighting 69th") of the 42nd Division (Rainbow Division) in WWI. One of his aides was famed poet Joyce Kilmer (December 6, 1886-July 30, 1918), killed in action while serving as a sergeant under Donovan at the Second Battle of the Marne. Both had attended Columbia College, as did Franklin D. Roosevelt (Franklin Delano Roosevelt; AKA: FDR: January 30, 1882-April 12, 1945). Years before WWII, Donovan traveled extensively in Europe, meeting many foreign leaders, including dictator Benito Mussolini and, when conferring with his friend Roosevelt, who had become the President of the U.S., told him that a world war was imminent. When war came, Roosevelt appointed Donovan head of the OSS, a U.S. espionage and intelligence organization that worked behind enemy lines in Europe and in the Pacific during WWII. The OSS later became the CIA.
