State Department’s Security Bureau official history

Here is a link to the ‘History of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security of the United States Department of State’. This book covers the history of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security and its predecessors – the Office of Security and the Office of the Chief Special Agent of the U.S. Department of State – from the inception in 1916 up to the present.

Chapter 2 deals with developments during WWII and the major effort to upgrade security in foreign missions. Security in most embassies was lamentable, especially in Moscow.

Unfortunately there is only passing mention of the State Department codes Gray, Brown and M-138 strip as the book mainly deals with general security measures.
