1943 Joins U.S. Navy.
1944 Assigned to OSS, London. Malcolm Muggeridge writes: "Ah, those first OSS arrivals in London. How well I remember them, arriving like jeunes filles en fleur straight from a finishing school, all fresh and innocent, to start work in our frowsy old intelligence brothel." Polmar.
1966 Attempts Republic nomination to U.S. Congress, Long Island NY seat; fails.
1971 Appointed Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, serves until 1973.
1980 Runs Ronald Reagan's campaign for President.
1980 Casey allegedly attends meetings in Madrid and Paris with representatives of Ayatollah Khomeini. In these proceedings, Casey supposedly asks the Iranians to keep the American hostages in Iran until after the 1980 election in exchange for weapons, thus ruining Jimmy Carter's reelection bid. The evidence of this claim is sketchy at best. Casey claimed that he was at Bohemian Grove at the time of the supposed meetings.

Jan 1987 Steps down as DCI for health reasons.
29 Jan 1987 DCI William Casey dies of a brain tumor a mere two days before he is to give testimony for the Iran-Contra scandal, Mayknoll, MD. He had received a craniotomy. Dodged that one!
