Biography

Canadian-born millionaire industrialist whose adventures as British WW II chief of intelligence in the Western Hemisphere were chronicled in the 1979 bestseller, "A Man Called Intrepid." An inventor and financier, he was given the code name Intrepid by Winston Churchill, for whom he acted as liaison with Roosevelt.

A top fighter pilot in WW I, he was gas poisoned in France. Going into the manufacturer of radios, phonographs, automobiles and airplanes, he made his first million by the time he was 30. During the late '30s, he began to gather information in German to aid the Allies and in the '40s, became British Security Coordinator. Sir William died at 93, on 1/31/1989.
