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
