Guy J. Pauker (died in 2002)
"In March 1971, Pauker was also the author of a Rand report sent to the Pentagon and circulated to top officials, including Henry A. Kissinger, then presidential advisor for national security affairs and coincidentally a Harvard classmate of Pauker's. The report, kept secret for 18 months, spoke of the futility of the Paris peace talks as an effort to resolve the Vietnam War...
"In the years after World War II, as Communists began their takeover, Pauker served as secretary general of the Romanian Institute for International Affairs. He also co-founded Friends of the U.S. in Bucharest and edited its "Russian-American Review" until Communists silenced the quarterly publication.
"Because of the political conflict, Pauker left Romania for the U.S. in 1948, and earned a master's degree and a doctorate in social science at Harvard, concentrating on Southeast Asia. Pauker taught briefly at Harvard and then, from 1956 to 1963, at UC Berkeley, where he became head of the Center for Southeast Asian Studies.
"In 1960, he also began his work for Rand in Santa Monica. For more than two decades, he was a consultant to the National Security Council, the State Department, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, the House Committee on International Affairs and the National War College." His wife was Ewa Pauker.
