FBI INFORMER BOYD DOUGLAS collected a $200 reward
in the capture of Rev. Daniel Berrigan while acting as an in-
former against Rev. Philip Berrigan, testimony at the trial of
the Harrisburg seven disclosed yesterday.
Douglas expressed complete surprise at hearing that he was the
one who led to the capture of the Catholic militant. He admitted he
had received $200 but said, "I had no idea what it was for."
Douglas is the star government witness against Berrigan and
his six co-defendants, accused of plotting to kidnap Henry Kissinger,
to blow up heating tunnels in Washington, D.C., and to destroy draft
board records in nine states.
