WASHINGTON, D. C. 20007 PHONE (202) 333-6558 1 November 1972 MEMORANDUM FOR THE RECORD TO: Selected addressees FROM: Carl Schleicher, President Mankind Research Unlimited, Inc It has recently come to my attention that various rumors concerning our operation of Mankind Research Unlimited, Inc. (MRU), have surfaced, particularly in the state of California. Such rumors, however, are to be expected when an action-oriented organization engaged in pioneering and innovative research comes on the scene, and more so if such a group is headquartered in Washington, D. C. We, in Mankind Research Unlimited, are pleased and gratified to hear of the interest me have evoked through second and third party sources, however we cannot take credit, in any manner possible, for some of the claims made about us. Therefore in order to set the record straight, I want to confirm the following: We are not a front organization for any branch of the U.S. Government, or any other government for that matter. We are a private business organization, incorporated in the District of Columbia, pay federal taxes, and are forced to compete in cur "free enterprise" economy for contracts and grants against other companies, whether they be profit or non-profit. We do not mind such competition in these areas of mankind research, but actually encourage and engender it. We have never sold data, of any type, to the U. S. Government because the U. S. Government is not authorized to buy data - only finished research results. The U. S. Government data banks far surpass what any company or non-government organization
The story of Mankind Research is the story of the paranoia of the Cold War.
