From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Marshall Sylvester Carter (September 16, 1909, Fort Monroe, Virginia–February 18, 1993, Colorado Springs, Colorado) was a lieutenant general in the United States Army.


Carter was born in 1909 at Fort Monroe, Virginia. He graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1931 and took an M.S. degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1936. He served as an aide to General George C. Marshall during Marshall's time as Chief of Staff of the United States Army, Secretary of State, and Secretary of Defense.[1]

Carter, then a Lieutenant General, served as Deputy Director of Central Intelligence from April 3, 1962, to April 28, 1965. From 1965 to 1969, he served as Director of the National Security Agency. Upon retirement from the military, he served as President of the George C. Marshall Research Foundation until retiring from that position in 1985.

General Carter was inducted into the Military Intelligence Hall of Fame. He was portrayed by Ed Lauter in the film Thirteen Days (2000), based on events occurring during the Cuban Missile Crisis. [2]
