B. Hugh Tovar was a CIA officer who head the station in Indonesia at the time of the 1965 coup, and later the head of station in Laos.[1]

At the inaugural meeting of the Consortium for the Study of Intelligence in April 1979, Tovar presented an essay on covert action which argued, in Roy Godson's summary, that "US covert action capabilities had been eroded seriously during the upheaval of the 1970s."[2]
