Barry Bingham was proprietor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, where he paid the salaries of journalists Ulric Bell and Herbert Agar while they helped run the Fight for Freedom Committee in the early 1940s. Thomas E. Mahl suggests Bingham may have been working directly with British Security Coordination.

In 1949 he began a year's service as chief of the Marshall Plan in France, and chairman of the International Press Institute 1964-1966, and director Asia Foundation [1]. Both IPI and the Asia Foundation are known CIA fronts, the latter infamous.[1]

He was a trustee at the Rockefeller Foundation.[2]
