Kelb member, Nancy, (“Nancy” is a composite charactor, drawn from common experiences of MKUltra survivors) experiences fear, confusion and a sense of indeterminate dread, often. She has identified some of the sources of these reactions, in her adult life, but needs more help. She is one of the many (at least 36,000) Americans, who experienced MKUltra project testing, initiated by military psychiatrist, Sidney Gottlieb, in her childhood (1940’s – 1960’s). These “experiments” were an offshoot of McCarthyism: the “Red Scare”, which seemed to permeate many aspects of American life and intelligence agency efforts, in those years.
These “experiments” were performed on young American children. They seem a response to McCarthyism. Hoover and others, in those years, were suspicious that communist and insurgent communists, were using sophisticated infiltration techniques and employing invasive, persuasive psychological methods, to achieve their goals. These goals were considered antithetical to American ways of life. So, these military/intelligence “doctors” experimented on unwitting American children and tried to suppress their memories of these traumatic, and horrific tests.
These “tests” were identified in the Church Senate Committee Hearings (1974)and in the Radiation Experimentation Hearings. Nancy and many others want their memories back.
Our group, Kelb, Inc., “Keep The Ethical Light Burning”, is formed to deal with these issues; this unsolved American problem. Unethical experimentation was exposed in the Watergate scandal, and was a vital topic in subsequent Church Senate Subcommittee Hearings. In the ensuing years, it has not been dealt with, by any higher levels of government, or mil/intelligence agencies. We need help, to right the wrong and help the living survivors.
Our non-profit organization, Kelb is specifically concerned with is non-consensual or unauthorized human subject testing. We are especially concerned with programs and projects, which experimented on unwitting human subjects, including children (some as far back as 1938). These were the MKUltra projects of U.S. military/intelligence: Bluebird, Artichoke, Pandora, Chatter, and others, including the biological and chemical testing programs.
We have worked with survivors of the Holmsburg experimentation in Pennsylvania and we support and correspond with lawyers in the ongoing California lawsuit, concerning the non-consensual testing of military enlistees (years: 1942 – 1986: Case: Vietnam Veterans of America et al. v. CIA et al. CV 09-0037-CW,U.S.D.C. (N.D. Cal 2009)1.
Along with victim support and outreach, a long term goal is effective ethical and non-political oversight of the entire military intelligence community, as it currently exists. We want to put an end to the potential for recurrence of these heinous experiments.
It is illegal to experiment on anyone in this country without his or her informed consent. Forty five C.F.R. forty six clearly states that informed consent is a necessity. The Nuremberg Code established at the close of World War II, is the international legal standard for human experimentation. Violations of international law can be pleaded in the U.S. cases. The Wilson Directive (1953) is U.S. law clearly stating: human experimentation can occur only with the informed consent of the human subject. U.S. and international law is very clear.
Our mission is advocacy and support for victims of such as Nancy, and exposure of their plight. We also intend that survivor/victims we work with, be made “whole”.
One of the many memories Nancy is dealing with, begin with being taken to a church in the morning, as a child, in the south, in her teen years. She can remember very little of what happened in the church, on those days. She remembers leaving her home and later, going home. She has memories of the evening at home, but is finding it very difficult to recall anything that happened, during these times, in the church.
Another mysterious memory involves teenage trips to Fort Bragg, a military base, near where Nancy lives and grew up. Again, after spending the day on this military base, she can not remember what happened there. She remembers leaving and the night at home, but very little of the day. Therapists believe she may have been hypnotized and possibly drugged, to help suppress the memory. This may be very significant in dealing with, what was actually going on in her life.
We believe Nancy experienced MKUltra Project experimentation/testing.
This is common to our trauma survivors. It takes work to reveal these memories. Nancy spent her working life as a nurse and raising her daughter. She now lives with her sister and is parenting her daughter’s young son, while her daughter works. She is haunted by these memories and wants to further uncover and deal with them. She knows there is trauma, but reaching the actual events is proving difficult.
She is an active Kelb member and spends many days each week, generously giving her time, working on our issues. So much needs to be done. And most members are trauma survivors as Nancy is. Our common goals are to continue our lives, succeed in uncovering these memories and to work towards reparations, and being made “whole,” in spite of these common experiences of induced trauma. In researching this problem, many children were raped and tortured (Radiation Committee Testimonies, The CIA’s Search for the Manchurian Candidate, by John Marks). Hypnosis and drugs were used at the close of the “experimental” day, making it difficult for these “adults” to now remember, what happened during these times.
Many of our members are working with their private therapists, on these difficult, hurtful, life-impacting issues. We are looking for therapists to work with our group, group members and with our new members, who are just uncovering this abuse in their lives and looking for support. We welcome them, and we want to provide an adequate and helpful support system for them. This takes financial support. Our organization is a 501 (c) (3) non-p profit charity, incorporated in the state of Delaware and registered in New York State, as a charity.
Five dollars, ten dollars or a generous $100 donation will go a long way to helping Americans like, Nancy, who wants nothing more than to be made “whole”. She wants her memories back. Please work with us to help this group of Americans, who endured harmful experimentation, without their consent.

A group member/therapist, who has treated many MKUltra survivors in her career, speaks of one haunting MKUltra experimentation survivor. This woman had recalled times of being held in a cage for days and being raped. The therapist recounts years of therapy, working with this survivor, which seemed to be progressing positively. One day she got an horrific telephone call. The survivor had committed suicide. We work that this not happen.
We represent many like Nancy. Nat, a northeast member has memories of almost being kidnapped as a child. His dreams and subconscious tell him that there was more to this. He is working with these memories and knowledge. David, whose last dramatic words from his dying mother, revealed to him, that he too, was an experimentation survivor. Her last words were exhortations of love, encouragement and warning. We work with many more experimental survivors. Please visit our website, read our mission statement and our pages. Our issues lie in our memories. Please help us work and make our groups members, whole. Please donate to Nancy, Nat, David and Kelb, Inc.
