In 1947, Ewell Lee Danielly, a Black man, was convicted of the first degree murder and sentenced to die for shooting his wife, Betty Danielly, to death, and a deadly assault upon his wife’s friend, Mrs. Elva Sam. This case has the earmarks of an early Black Manchurian Candidate experiment.
According to research, most Black Manchurian Candidates are individuals with created dissociative identity disorders that fall within the following five criteria:
1. Dissociate identity disorder created deliberately. Candidate usual has had contact with OSS, CIA, BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE, MK-ULTRA controllers or institutions or Military intelligence controllers or institutions, and prisons. Candidate’s contact may have been created through bloodlines, military recruitment, enlistment, imprisonment, or civilian employee of military institutions.
2. A new identity is implanted which includes multiple personalities. Candidate has sudden appearance of an unknown operative personality, or new behavior involving senseless and uncharacteristic violence.
3. Amnesia barriers are created. Candidate has had memory loss proximate, and during a specific operation.
4. Used in simulated or actual operations. Candidate carried out an operative or assassination, and killing(s) may have occurred during or close to national or state elections, or involved political, religious groups or figures.
5. Disposal after operation. Candidate has had judge, or severely compromised jury trial, or guilty pleaded, declared insane or found suitable for commitment to mental institution, confined to solitary confinement in state or federal prison with restricted visitation with little or no access to inmate populations.
The Black Manchurian Candidate Criteria was expanded from the groundbreaking work of Colin A. Ross, M.D. in the operational use of multiple personality disorders by U.S. military and intelligence agencies. 
The Danielly Case facts fall within all five criteria as a Black Manchurian Candidate. The shooting incident occurred October 13, 1946 at about 12:30 a.m. in San Francisco, CA. What made this case a suspect early Black Manchurian Candidate case as in the Strange Case of Sebron Flenaugh, Jr., is that Danielly claimed that he did not remember the events proximate, and during the shootings. Danielly had direct links to covert military intelligence controllers, and mind control sites.
Danielly said that he remembered working at Letterman Hospital on October 12 and going home and to bed, but could not remember what happened for approximately seven to eight hours after retiring.
Danielly and his wife had been separated for less than a year. Five days before the shooting, they had told mutual friends that they had made up with each other and were going back to live with each other as man and wife. The state’s theory of the case was that Danielly had a motive to kill his wife. He was bitter about the separation, and the alienation of his wife’s affection. The state presented evidence that he was violence prone in the relationship, and had before the incident threatened to use deadly force against her. The state also suggested that Danielly was bitter about his wife’s wealth. She owned couple’s home at 2208 Pine Street, and was a woman of some acquired wealth.
On October 13, the state maintained that Danielly carried out his threat to kill his wife in a jealous and bitter rage. Who would believe Danielly’s claim of innocence and lack of memory? Even his attorney didn’t believe him. The jury didn’t believe him. The judge wouldn’t allow him to present evidence of his amnesia. Amnesia was a complete defense to murder in the first degree, because an essential element of murder in the first degree was deliberation and premeditation. Theoretically, a man suffering amnesia cannot deliberate and premeditate, but there were problems presenting the defense of amnesia in Danielle’s case. For all apparent reasons, Danielly appeared to be a healthy young Black man suffering under no visible signs of distress.
The state of art in 1946 was that the loss of memory was the result of an organic disease of the brain, and there was no disease in Danielly’s brain.
Danielly was in quite of a dilemma in proving his innocence by reason of amnesia in 1946. A court appointed psychologist presented Danielly’s dilemma to the jury, “We do have people who commit crimes of violence while undergoing a spell of amnesia but they are also practically 99.9 percent epileptics. We seldom have crimes of violence committed by amnesia patients excepting epileptics…I think any analysis of his life shows nothing that would indicate insanity. And then we have that period between 8 o’clock in the evening until 2 o’clock next morning, in which we are to judge of his sanity or insanity. And we know that people do not become insane, as a medical condition at 8 o’clock and recover permanently at 2 o’clock. They may be temporarily deranged as a result of rage or jealously but they are not insane in the medical-legal sense, or in the medical sense.” 
Military intelligence covert use of experimental hypnosis, and post-hypnotic suggestions in brainwashing or deliberate creation of multiple personalities were completely off the public map in 1946. The military use of brainwashing was popularized only during the early 1960’s with the release of the movie, The Manchurian Candidate.
On October 12, 1946, shortly before 6 p.m., Danielly returned from working at Letterman Hospital, where he worked as a dietetic cook. He said that he telephoned Mrs. Danielly and they had a friendly conversation as usual. He said that he took a bath and soon after 6 p.m. went to bed, read a magazine and went to sleep. He said that he remained there until the early morning of October 13, when police awoke him and accused him of killing his wife and the wounding of Mrs. Sam. Danielly also claimed that he didn’t even own a gun.
There were two men that witnessed the killing of Mrs. Danielly and assault of Mrs. Sam, Jack Earl and Sidney Harmon. They said that about 12:30 a.m., they were leaving the home of Mrs. Danielly at 2208 Pine Street to go to a restaurant. They observed Danielly cross the street from his parked car with a gun in his hand. Mrs. Danielly got into Earl’s car, which was parked in the front of the home. Danielly pointed the gun at Earl and shoved him and said, “You fellows have gone far enough.” Danielly then walked over to Harmon and asked him what he was going to do about it. Earl and Harmon then ran off to summon help.
Danielly reportedly approached Mrs. Danielly sitting in the car, and told her “I told you I was going to do this.” He then shot her through the head. After that, a witness heard him say, “God damn woman.” Danielly then approached Mrs. Sam standing in front of the car and said, “That goes for you too.” He shot her once and she fell to the sidewalk. He fired two more shots at her. After he shot both women, he calmly walked over a hill on Webster Street and disappeared.
At about 8 p.m. on the night of October 12, an acquaintance of Danielly testified at trial that he saw Danielly at the Bee Hill’s Tavern. He said that he asked Danny if he was going to play poker, “And I don’t think – he must of didn’t hear me, or something, because he never give me any kind of answer. So I asked him again. And he said, ‘No, no,’ he said, ‘I am not playing tonight’; he said he had some business to attend to. So then I turned to the bar to get me a beer, and I turned around and Danny was gone… [H] e act stranger then he acted before me, because Danny was generally a fellow if you would ask a question, the would answer it. But I asked him about playing poker, and he looked at me, but he never answered me. And I asked him the second time, and he just I don’t know, he talked like he might have been worried or something…[H] e wasn’t drunk…[H] e acted more or less like he might be in daze, or something, from the way he answered my question.”
At Letterman Hospital, Danielly had been seen as a patient for about two years for nervous disability by Dr. Maurice B. Mooslin, a physician and surgeon in general practice. Dr. Mooslin was born sometime in 1878. He had been appointed to the U.S. Medical Corp in 1919. He maintained an office on Fillmore Street for decades. Danielly had been also under some type of suspect observation by two sergeants at Letterman, Le Velle and Yohe.
Danielly enlisted in the United States Navy in 1934 at the age of 18. He served in the navy for 11 years and 3 months. He obtained the rank of chief cook. He was wounded in action on August 18, 1944 by the explosion of an enemy anti-personnel bomb. After preliminary hospitalization in Italy for approximately 30 days he returned to the United States. He spent about 30 days in a naval hospital on Long Island, was granted a 30-day leave furlough transfer in order that he could see his wife in San Francisco, and at the end of his furlough he reported to the Oak Knoll Naval Hospital.
Danielly said, “I was in Oak Knoll approximately thirty days…I was having headaches and dizzy spells… I was discharged from the hospital as being physically fit, and I was sent to Treasure Island.” Danielly was awarded 60 percent disability rating and discharged on September 7, 1945.
Danielly naval medical records from U.S. Naval Hospital, San Leandro, CA dated July 24, 1945 diagnosed him as suffering from psychoneurosis neurasthenia. At the time, Danielly was 29 years old. He was wounded by bomb fragments in the invasion of Southern France, sustaining fracture of right ulna and multiple wounds in the right side of back, and chest, and left arm.
On March 19, 1944, he was readmitted to U.S. Naval Hospital, Oakland, CA with a diagnosis of no disease, convalescent leave, and disposition. He had been complaining of nervousness, tremors, sweating, irritability, pain and weakness in the right forearm and hand. When was Danielly wounded in combat? The court record reflected that he was wounded August 18, 1944. Could it have been in August 18, 1943?
A neuropsychiatric consultant found that he had ‘combat fatigue’ and he was sent back to duty on December 15, 1944. Danielly was then admitted to the U.S. Naval Dispensary, Hunters Point, San Francisco on April 23, 1945 for episodic (out of character) nervousness, cramps and diarrhea due to combat fatigue, he was then transferred to the U.S. Naval Hospital, Oakland, CA.
On May 26, 1945, Danielly was seen again by naval doctors for tension, irritability, insomnia, easy startled, battle dreams, anxious expectation, headache, backache, pain in chest anorexia and nausea. Neurological examination revealed gross tremors of head and hands, sweating, tachycardia, dilated pupils. On admission, Danielly was tense, anxious, hyperactive, irritable and nervous. There was also mild autonomic instability.
On June 15, 1945, Dr. Mooslin testified that he met Danielly as a patient for the first time, but that meeting seemed not to have been recorded in Danielly’s military medical records or records of that meeting was intentionally deleted.
All along, Danielly was under some type of treatment and medication. Dr. Mooslin was not allowed to tell the court just what medication that he was taking, or describe his treatment.
On July 21, 1945, Danielly was diagnosed to be suffering from ‘psychoneurosis neurasthenia’. Psychoneurosis is interchangeable with neurosis. Neurosis at one time referred to any somatic disorder of the nerves. It is generally considered to be a disease of the nervous system, whereas neurasthenia means weakness or exhaustion of the nervous system.
The board found that Danielly’s continued neurotic symptoms made him unfit for further service. Danielly was discharged from U.S. Naval Service with the uncompromising notation that “he is not likely to be a menace to himself or to others…”
In other words, the assassination and assault committed by Danielly on October 13 was a sudden appearance of an unknown operative personality, or new behavior involving senseless and uncharacteristic violence.
For about two years, Danielly had been under some type of treatment by naval psychiatrists. He had been treated at Oak Knoll Hospital which had a ward where enlisted men were subjected to electro-shock treatment. He was treated and then hired at Letterman Hospital, a hospital where former Office of Strategic Services (OSS) agents were stationed. The OSS was a U.S. covert counterintelligence agency organized by want-a-be blueblood New York Wall Street attorney, William “Wild Bill” Donovan, and British intelligence during World War II.
From as early as 1940, Donovan had been in contact with psychiatrist Dr. George Holben Estabrooks of Colgate College. Dr. Estabrooks had been in contact with U.S. Military Intelligence and British intelligence since the 1920’s. Dr. Estabrooks expertise was creating multiple personality disorders through hypnotism for military intelligence operational use. Dr. Estabrooks is the only psychiatrist or psychologist to have claimed in public that he built Manchurian Candidates.
Donovan’s technical staff in charge of assessing brainwashing programs was among other bluebloods, Psychiatrists Dr. James Alexander Hamilton of Stanford, and Dr. Henry A. Murray of Harvard University. One of Dr. Murray’s infamous experimental victims was the “Unabomber”, Theodore Kaczynski. 
In 1946, Dr. Hamilton, a notorious clandestine counterintelligence agent, was stationed at Letterman Hospital with Danielly. From 1943 to 1944, he was chief of the OSS assessment services. Dr. Hamilton had an S factor (Stanford University) connection. Dr. Hamilton was a graduate of U.C. Berkeley, and Stanford’s school of medicine. He was also a professor of psychiatry at both the UC Berkeley, and Stanford University. Dr. Hamilton and Murray were close associates of Margaret Mead and Dr. Gregory Bateston, and Ruth Benedict.
In December 1943, Murray joined the staff of the OSS Assessment under Dr. Hamilton at Station S, located on a remote estate outside of Washington D.C. Murray designed and operated an experimental program aided at evaluating the psychological fitness of OSS recruits for clandestine operations. 
Dr. Hamilton was best known as the CIA station agent at the California Medical Facility at Vacaville during SLA operations, and the Patty Hearst kidnapping. Dr. Hamilton maintained a covert CIA laboratory at Vacaville to test drugs, stress and trauma based mind control techniques on inmates.
At Vacaville, Dr. Hamilton worked with Black men like psychiatrist Dr. Isaac Slaughter, and CIA contractor Colston Westbrook to produce inmate zombie assassins and political “patsies” out of Black inmates. Their most infamous creation was virtual reality Black revolutionary, Donald Defreeze, of the Symbionese Liberation Army. Dr. Hamilton’s cover was exposed by Congressman Leo Ryan in October of 1978, which may have led among other things to his assassination on November 18, 1978 in Guyana.
Dr. Hamilton told the Advisory Committee Staff of the Members of the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments that the CIA provided him funds to set up and operate a laboratory, whereby he would do his own research but also do research for the CIA at their request. Dr. Hamilton stated that he therefore set up a lab in the Vacaville California Prison Medical Facility and did radioisotope studies to measure thyroid uptake in male prisoners as part of his own research in understanding the effects of the thyroid on post-partum depression. He said that the lab was shut down after it became public. He told staff that he provided the agency information on the effects of LSD and other drugs based on his clinical experience as a psychiatrist. Dr. Hamilton also stated that he did experiments concerning covert markers using fluorescents.
Dr. Hamilton’s revelations were based on a CIA memo dated May 29, 1963 which described his work on Subproject 140, which principally involved human testing of drugs, “pharmacological and clinical investigations of Agency interest will be conducted; these investigations will encompass clinical testing and feasibility testing of drugs affecting human behavior.” The memo also stated that Dr. Hamilton would “[m] aintain an investigational cover activity for backstopping and use in conducting clinical evaluation and feasibility trials of interest to TSD [the CIA’s Technical Service Division].” 
Dr. Hamilton modus operatum since his early years with the OSS was to carry on covert and secret drug and mind control projects for military and intelligence sources under cover of his profession in psychiatry. The radioisotope studies were cover for covert and secret testing of various hallucinogenic and experimental behavior modifying drugs on Black inmates, which was of interest to the CIA.
Dr. Hamilton’s OSS Assessment Service was responsible for the assessment, recruitment and employment of agents, that department was also responsible for monitoring its drug and brainwashing experiments and programs. Dr. Hamilton was reportedly directly involved in truth drug experiments along with OSS researchers Dr. Roger Adams, Dr. Lawrence Kubie. The tests were conducted at Station S, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, D.C., and Spring Grove Hospital, a state institution outside of Baltimore.
St. Elizabeth’s Hospital was the site of PROJECT CHATTER. PROJECT CHATTER remains highly classified. The test also involved OSS agent Col. George Hunter White, on loan from the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. 
During World War II, White recruited and trained assassins for the OSS. White once told a reporter, “Some of my best friends are murderers.” Col. White was recruited for Project Artichoke by CIA counterintelligence agent chief James Jesus Angleton, White established a domestic Artichoke team that operated out of a CIA-funded safe house located in New York’s Greenwich Village. White’s operation was funded by MK-ULTRA Subproject 3.
In San Francisco, Dr. Hamilton worked along with assassination expert, George White, in carrying out covert operations on unwitting subjects. White set up safe houses in San Francisco with the particular purpose of drugging and testing CIA stockpiles of experimental drugs on unwitting victims under other CIA’s MK-ULTRA Projects.
Dr. Hamilton supervised White’s covert drug testing activities. Dr. Hamilton supplied White with the drugs, and observed some of tests and experiments from secret observing stations built into the safe houses.
In 1949, White was also famous for setting up the drug arrest and conviction of the infamous singer and songwriter Billie Holliday in San Francisco.  During that time, White was also working with the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. White had known Holiday’s agent, Levy, since 1941. Levy had been an informer working with White.
White kicked in Holiday’s hotel door, and rushed her before she flushed some opium down the toilet. White testified that he didn’t smell any narcotics before breaking in the room, which suggests that Holiday was set up.
After her arrest, Billie Holiday checked into a California sanitarium to prove that she had been set up and had not been using drugs. The sanitarium had been recommended by a friend of a friend that turned out to be Dr. Hamilton.
Dr. Hamilton was also involved in what I will call the “The Tinian Project.” After U.S. military forces dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, U.S. military squads were sent in on rescue missions. The rescue squads suffered severe emotional and traumatic experiences from what they saw and witnessed on the island after the bombing. They suffered from repeated nightmares about seeing people with skin burnt so bad it appeared to be melting away no matter what they tried to do for the victims.
Dr. Hamilton and a team of OSS agents, researchers and scientists were sent in to collect data, and threat the soldiers. They also had the responsibility to defuse possible adverse public reactions that may have resulted from the gruesome deaths and human misery caused by the atomic bombs. The soldiers could not be allowed to return home to the states and tell the world the truth about what happened on the island. Dr. Hamilton and the team treated them with psychotropic drugs and hypnosis to alter the soldier’s interpretation of what actually occurred on Japan.
After the war, Dr. Hamilton and researchers used the data complied from studying, and treating soldiers during the Tinian Project to develop safer and more effective means to induce operational memory voids, and amnesia.
One of the soldiers studied, treated and drugged by Dr. Hamilton and the Tinian Project team warned the world about what Dr. Hamilton and team developed, “It’s scary…They can change a person’s behavior… Their present intentions may include creating a breed of living robot soldiers that will go into battle without any fear of personal sacrifice. Somehow, they must be stopped. Would you like your son to think he is invincible and go on a suicide mission, if that’s what his orders say?… With anchoring they can separate a person’s self-identity so that a second personality, one that has little or no knowledge of the other can’t take over the person’s routine functions.” 
Was Danielly one of Dr. Hamilton’s countless innocent Black victims of U.S. government covert brainwashing and experimental drug testing, and mind control programs?
The technology to create “memory voids”, and amnesia barriers was well developed by the U.S. government in 1946. Dr. Hamilton was an expert not only in researching, studying and testing LSD, and other hallucinogenic and behavior modifying drugs. Dr. Hamilton was also in the business of creating and perfecting memory voids, and techniques to make virtual remote controlled soldiers.
Was Danielly a 1940’s prototype of a virtual remote controlled soldier, and experimental programmed assassin created by U.S. intelligence forces? Why did Danielly spend the balance of his life in San Diego? Was he a military study subject of the neuropsychiatry laboratory at the Naval Medical Center, or was he kept under military protected custody for the rest of his life?
In 1947, Danielly had been sentenced to die in the electric chair at San Quentin for the death of his wife. Three days before his execution in 1949, then California Governor Earl Warren commuted his death sentence to a life imprisonment. Danielly was subsequently released from prison. He died in San Diego in 1966.
The 1954 C.I.A. documents proved beyond doubt that the government had been in the business of developing involuntary assassins. Dr. Hamilton’s revelations and CIA documents released to the Members of the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments revealed that wherever he was practicing psychiatry at hospitals, prisons or clinics, they were subjected to covert experimental drug testing and mind control experiments forced on unwitting patients and inmates like Danielly.
The monster makers knew all along that once an involuntary assassin committed an act of assassination or crime at their command under hypnotic suggestion, he or she would be disposed of by the state with little if any risk of exposure, “After the act of attempted assassination was performed, it was assumed that the subject would be taken into custody by the (deleted) government and thereby ‘disposed of.’” The C.I.A memorandum said.
Upon sentencing in 1947, Danielly was committed to San Quentin’s Death Row, which was indeed solitary confinement. The majority of the psychiatric staff at San Quentin was associated with Stanford Medical School. Dr. Hamilton graduated from Stanford Medical School, and was an instructor there. As a former blueblood OSS agent, and then a CIA station chief, Dr. Hamilton obviously wielded a great deal of power and influence over the school, students, and its S-Factor graduates.
During this time, San Quentin had an experimental hospital, Neumiller Hospital. Dr. David G. Schmidt, a white Russian, staffed the hospital. Dr. Schmidt was another S-Factor graduate. Dr. Schmidt allegedly invented a mind control machine called, Magnetic Integrated Neuron Duplicator (MIND). There is some evidence that this MIND machine was used on General Edwin Walker. General Walker was the neo-nazi and John Bircher that Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly took a shot at.
The 1954 C.I.A assassination documents dealt with the attempted assassination of a prominent foreign politician or if necessary against an “American official”. There was a team of interrogation experts, drug experts and psychiatrists or psychologists fully operational in creating involuntary (Manchurian Candidates) assassins under a C.I.A. project called ARTICHOKE.
The ARTICHOKE team was not only operationally successful in creating involuntary assassins, but they were able to program assassins to carry out assassinations in the future upon command by triggers and keys, “…it was proposed that the individual could be surreptitiously drugged through the medium of an alcoholic cocktail at a social party. Artichoke applied, and the subject induced to perform the act of attempting assassination at some later date.” 
In January 1954, a memorandum reported that the ARTICHOKE team was fully operational, and a specific involuntary assassin project was reported to have gone “… extremely well”.  Dr. Hamilton was undoubtedly an indispensable member of the CIA’s ARTICHOKE team.
Dr. Hamilton was also well familiar with post-hypnotic memory voids, and amnesia. He studied and perfected the techniques during the Tinian Project. Post-hypnotic amnesia refers to a loss of memory for events transpiring during the hypnotic stage.
If Danielly killed his wife during a hypnotic stage, he was not responsible for murder. If Danielly was drugged and hypnotized and killed his wife under hypnotic suggestion of another, then the hypnotist should answer for the senseless murder of Mrs. Betty Danielly, and the unmerciful and inhumane (mind control) torture of Ewell Lee Danielly.
