"We don't advertise. Our sign is barely legible. Our address is wrong in the city directory. And yet, somehow, they find us."
Rose Roberts to Peggy Carter[src]

The Auerbach Theatrical Agency is the main office of the Strategic Scientific Reserve in Los Angeles, posing as the small office for a talent company.


Creation of the Los Angeles Branch

In 1947, the SSR branched out, opening a facility in Los Angeles, California under the leadership of Daniel Sousa. Using the front of Auerbach Theatrical Agency, Sousa used the alias of "Mr. Auerbach" to cover the reality of the organization. One of the first transfers from the New York Bell Company Office branch was Rose Roberts, who continued her duties as the first line of defense by acting as a secretary.[1]

Jane Scott Murder Investigation

One of the first cases that the new branch received was the murder of Jane Scott, found frozen in a lake in Echo Park on one of the hottest days of the year. Peggy Carter was sent to assist in the matter, much to her displeasure. When she arrived at the building, two Lookie Loos were attempting to audition. They had managed to find the theatrical agency despite the fact that the agency had no advertising, the sign was barely legible and the address was wrong in the city directory. Peggy Carter was then shown to the secret entrance of the SSR.[1]

S.H.I.E.L.D. Base

When the SSR was absorbed into S.H.I.E.L.D., the Auerbach Theatrical Agency was turned into a S.H.I.E.L.D. base, which Daniel Sousa remained in charge of until his death in 1955.[2]
