Edwin Terrell, chief of Guatemala station in early June 1954, replacing John Doherty. A report in March of 1954 from Havana was produced by Wallace A. Growery (Earl Williamson) and approved by Franklin D. Mallek.
In addition, Mallek was mentioned in two PBSUCCESS Progress Reports in June of 1954. The first stated that Mallek had departed from Headquarters on June 3 for LINCOLN (CIA's Guatemalan covert operations headquarters, a forward base in Florida) for additional briefings prior to resuming his duties as redacted position. The second report mentioned that Franklin D. Mallek had arrived in El Salvador on 14 June. The rest of the passage was redacted.

A dispatch by David A. Phillips in January, 1966, mentioned Mallek's (Edwin Terrell was handwritten next to Mallek's name) and Stewart R. Pataker's (Jim Flannery) personnel files.

Terrell, as Chief/WH/2, was the Authenticating Officer for a cable in September of 1966.

Philip Agee, in his book, Inside the Company, CIA Diary (1975), referred to Edwin Terrell as "Chief of the 'Bolivarian' branch of Western Hemisphere Division."

The text below represents a memorandum dated 18 June 1954 from the local ODACID (U.S. State Department) Chief: 'The Honduran Ambassador told me President Osorio is somewhat cold to General Ydigoras Fuentes. He said that nevertheless, he and the Foreign Minister, Robert Canessa, are working on the President to obtain his backing for Ydigoras as they believe the latter to have sufficient popular support within Guatemala to head a possible government and to be the legal successor to the Presidency because Ydigoras polled a large number of votes despite the fact that he had to make a presidential campaign while in hiding. 'The Chief of Protocol, Ambassador Alvarez Vidaurre, said he personally believed Ydigoras to be intelligent and enterprising but that there were many people here who felt that he was more of a talker than a doer.'
