Comment: Last year I published a book with Air University Press looking at the evolution and effectiveness of WWMCCS. Right now I'm almost done with a history of the Defense Communications Agency and System. The upcoming project--actually about half done already--will be "Big L," a history of the Air Force's Big L programs, which of course includes White Alice. The web site is terrific, by the way; but if anyone has additional stories, anecdotes, or accounts, I'd love to hear them.
