I'm looking for publicly available details about
Allen Macy Dulles Jr., son of Allen Welsh Dulles
(which father was also called Allen Macy Dulles).
What I could find so far is quite limited:
Born 1930 (exact date appreciated)
(2) Major head wound
He was a Marine Lieutenant.
"wounded and permanently disabled in the Korean
War when a mortar fragment penetrated his brain"
"Dulles's son sustained a near-fatal head wound
while serving with the Marines in Korea,
relegating him to supervised care for life."
I'm looking for details about the date of wound,
knowing it has to be between June 1950 and July
1953... If I understand well, the article of the
Time (see first page), titled "Names make news.
Last week these names made this news", is about
events happening roughly one week before Monday,
Feb. 09, 1953, date of its publication. My guess
is, he would have been evacuated very quickly
after having been wounded.
He was "wounded in Korea in 1952" according to:
(HTML version of PDF document on Princeton's
(3) Possible death
If he had died some time ago, could this very
information have remained unknown, and if so,
would it imply specific, tragic circumstances?
I'm wondering if he died in 1957, probably in
November or December.
Any help highly appreciated, as biographical
information of any kind, pictures (of him as
well as of his mother Clover Todd Dulles),
whatever... many thanks in advance.
