Sherman Kent is often considered the father of strategic intelligence analysis. A veteran of the Office of Strategic Services and the Central Intelligence Agency, he both had a key role in developing the formal craft of intelligence estimates and providing national leaders with such estimates, but also wrote on the subject in the open literature.
