William Gustav Friedemann

Retired from the FBI in 1965 after a 30-year career. He was credited with being a member of a special team of investigators "who broke the back of Nazi espionage" in the United States with the arrest of Frederick Duquesne in 1941.

He served as a legal attache for the FBI in Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, and in Havana, Cuba, until being expelled by Castro in 1960.

Friedemann, who was born in Noble County, began working for the FBI as a fingerprint analyst in 1935. He later became an agent for the FBI after identifying a crucial fingerprint in a kidnapping case.

After retiring from the FBI, he worked for Gulf Oil as an investigator in the security department.

Survived by his widow, Jene; two sons; two grandchildren, and two brothers, Herbert Friedemann of Stillwater and Reinhold Friedemann of Anaheim, Calif.
