Biography* Joan A. Culpepper-Morgan wrote on 17 Aug 2003: "My father Louis Eustache Culpepper moved to Switzerland in 1975. He worked for the Division of Human Rights of the United Nations. Whether or not he also worked for the government (CIA) as a major or minor operative is purely speculation. It is glamorous to think so but I just don't know... Although he and my mother separated they never divorced."
