Notes on Donald Newton Wilber

Richard Rothstein Oriental Rugs  Hagop Manoyan Antique Rugs

Don Wilber was a true renaissance man, author, scholar, adventurer, spy, and patriot. What he did, he did well and changed the course of human events far more than most men could ever dream of. His book on Timurid architecture is a major work. Wilber was a founder of the Princeton Rug Society. Wilber had a long association with and a financial interest in Oriental Rug Review. Don developed the plan and added in the execution of overthrewing the legally constituted Government of Iran and placed the Shah on the throne. Don Wilber recruited Ayatollah Kashani to help overthrow the Mosadegh Government of Iran in the CIA plot of 1953.

Don was the principle planner of Operation Ajax and he deeply resented the way he was treated in Kim Roosevelt's book. However had Kim continued to treat Don to oysters on the half shell at the Metropolitan Club he might have been in much better humor.
