Personal History:

Harriet Ashpool was born in 1929 to Professor Richard Ashpool and Clarice Ashpool, née Palmer, in 1929 in Rutland, Vermont. Her father was a professor who had enthusiastically participated in the early advances of radio technology, although his influence and prestige took a permanent blow when his pacifism caused him to refuse aiding the US Government in its efforts during the First World War. Harriet grew up wealthy but isolated, with all of her father's passion for telecommunications, but none of his noble ideals. She learned all she could from him and, upon turning 20, scuttered off to the nascent Central Intelligence Agency. She was hired, leading her to become estranged from her father, and quickly worked her way up the ranks. She was scalped for the Foundation while writing up an academic report on anomalous signals communication technology used during the Malayan Emergency; she found herself at Site-77 shortly thereafter.
