Tobacco Companies Personnel List) William Cutchins, was deceased as of 1994.(G. Bell LT Waxman 5/16/94) Bill Crutchins circa 1963 and received from Brown & Williamson's English attorney A.D. "Tony" McCormick, a copy of 1963 Haselbach/Libert/Battelle study , which stated that the body craves for renewed drug intake so this unconscious desire explains the addiction of the indivudual to nicotine.(Source 3/24/94). The 1963 Haselbach/Libert/Battelle study was sent to the TRC (UK's equivalent of the Tobacco Industry Research Council or TIRC), who sent it to the TIRC in the U.S. with the request that TIRC consider whether it would help the U.S. tobacco industry for the report to be given to the U.S. Surgeon General (Source 3/24/94). Addison Yeaman, a Brown & Williamson lawyer, sent this to Bill Cutchins and replied to Brown & Williamson's English attorney A.D. "Tony" McCormick on 6/28/63. Addison Yeaman was disturbed that the report had been sent. Sir Charles Ellis agreed to forestall publication of his results.(Source 3/24/94).
