One week after the meeting with Joaquin Meyer, the Office of Middle American Affairs issued a memorandum to Assistant Secretary Rubottom. The office, using data from the U.S. Embassy in Havana and the consulate in Santiago, and consulting with Cuban desk officer, Terrance G. Leonhardy, coordinated with the policy. William Wieland led this unit of the State Department. Wieland worked there in the early 1930s as a newspaper correspondent and he could speak Spanish. Like other Latin American specialists in the State Department, Wieland had served many positions in the Western part—Rio de Janeiro, Bogota, San Salvador, and Quito—before settling in Washington. He also became the director of the office on May 19, 1957, and the Cuban crisis soon became his agenda.
