Very neat.  Didn't know his name was John. Did Hoover and Stirling keep up a correspondence?

From what I understand Sterling Jr. was good friends with Benito Mussolini and of course Air Marshal Balbo dating back to WWI. But he was also good friends with Hoover. Hoover did not like the idea of a US Navy Admiral corresponding with the enemy during time of war. I do not see any of these letters in my group unfortunately. I was led to believe that I would receive many more personal letters but that has not happened yet.

Sterling Jr. had very controversial things to say about our allies and enemies leading up, during and after the war. Similar to General Patton's remarks about the Russians. I do have some paperwork from James Forrestal reprimanding Sterling Jr. regarding things he said to the press and in his speeches to the public.
