  Ernst Hanfstaengl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ernst Franz Sedgwick Hanfstaengl (Munich, February 2, 1887 - November 6, 1975) was a friend of Theodore Roosevelt and later of Adolf Hitler.
Hanfstaengl fell completely out of Hitler's favour after he was denounced by Unity Mitford, a close friend of both the Hanfstaengls and Hitler.
In 1942 Hanfstaengl was turned over to the U.S. (likely after Roosevelt's personal intercession) where he helped to create a psychological profile of Hitler but in 1944 was handed back to the British, who returned him to Germany after the end of the war.

 Washington City Review - Hitler's Piano Player by Peter Conradi   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Had Hanfstaengl never left the States, he would be remembered, if at all, as a kind of amiable eccentric, or as one of the writer Djuna Barnes’ more unlikely—given his decidedly Lurch-like appearance and her preference for women—lovers.
The elder Hanfstaengl’s dreams of helping Germany, first by serving as a kind of consigliere to a loose-cannon dictator, and later by helping the Allies to defeat that dictator, were forever being undone by his patrician conviction that everyone would be better off if everyone just shut up and listened to him.
Hanfstaengl emerges as the proverbial back-bencher, destined to grow dissatisfied with the powers that be in whatever place he found himself, whether it be the Weimar Republic, Nazi Germany, or the United States.

After the deterioration of his relations with Hitler, Hanfstaengl, the Führer's foreign press secretary, fled to Zurich, then two years later to England, where he was interned as an enemy alien.
During the war he was surreptitiously brought back from his internment camp in Canada to the United States, where he served, secretly, under the code name Dr. Sedgwick, as an adviser to the U.S. on the inner workings of the Nazi ruling clique, on psychological warfare, and on geopolitical questions.
Hanfstaengl befriended Hitler and welcomed him into his home, seeing himself as a civilizing influence on the volatile politician; and for a time, he was.

 ZNet Commentary
Ernst Franz Sedgwick Hanfstaengl (rhymes with Engel') was borne in 1887 in Munich, the Bavarian town, birthplace of Nazism, and known, also, as the Athens of Germany.
A letter from Hanfstaengl to Franklin D. Roosevelt resulted in the British "reluctantly lending" Hanfstaengl to the Americans and so Hanfy found himself under custody in an old villa in the area of Washington.
In 1944 Hanfstaengl was sent back to England and in 1949 was released and he returned to his birthplace in Germany where he was "denazified" and classified to the Category of "Exonerated." Hanfy, of Harvard, etc, died in 1975, at the age of 88.
