Dr. Louis Jolyon "Jolly" West
Air Force Major Louis Jolyon "Jolly" West joined MKULTRA early, concentrating on LSD studies, the most famous of which was a lethal LSD overdose injected int an elephant named Tusko. West lives in Haight-Ashbury in 1967, ostensibly to study the hippie in his native habitat. West was in charge of the Dept. of Psychiatry at UCLA, and director of the Neuro-Psychiatric Insitute until his death in 1999. From 1948
until 1956 he was Chief, Psychiatry Service, 3700th USAF Hospital, Lackland AFB in San Antonio,Texas...
not far from Brooks AFB, which houses the Albertus Strughold Library. In 1973 West proposed to then
Govenor Reagan the creation of a "Center for the Study and Reduction of Violence". Abandoned missile bases were to be the location for "programs for the alteration of undesirable behavior". West identified
the factors of violet behavior as "sex(male), age(youth), ethnicity(black), and urbanicity". West planned for the California STate Police to share a database that would keep track of "pre-delinquent" children in order to treat them before they became delinquents. One critic at UCLA said;"They're employing the psychiatric armamentarium and a new technological tool set, what has come to be known as psycho-technology. Under the guise of therapeutic behavior modification they're applying anything from (the terror drug) Anectine and other aversive drugs to Psychosurgery". West examined Jack Ruby after the Kennedy Assassination and pronounced him mentally ill despite Ruby's claims of a conspiracy. Dr. West was the chief medical officer involved in remote viewing projects such as Project Grill Flame. Late in life West became associated with the Cult Awareness Network, which was founded by a former aide to Reagan.
