This is about a year older than another Ellmann resume (at age 41) which omits the Brewster Jennings listing:

Robert Lawrence Ellmann, the Brewster-Jennings employee, is the nephew (not the son) of the literary biographer Richard Ellmann. The obituary of Robert Lawrence Ellmann's father shows this. However, Robert was at Oxford when his uncle died there and he has participated as a "bi-annual/family representative in Richard Ellmann Lectures at Emory University," according to one of his websites.

Re: the Richard Ellman resume
http://www.aac.edu/soubory.php/060resume.doc?id=619 is a link to an different resume at the same site, where the Brewster Jennings guff is replaced by:'1993- 1996 Eastern European University Teaching Project Lecturer in law/economics for Yale University based project in eastern Europe'
This document still claims that Robert Ellman authored the 'Oscar Wilde' book, though.
Make of that what you will.
Cryptome: Compare the original Word document in Google cache which has the Brewster Jennnings reference and the current resume which does not:

Robert Lawrence Ellmann may be Richard's son. Both are from the Detroit area, and Robert the spy was a student at Oxford at the same time the famous Richard died there. Robert Lawrence didn't say he authored the book on Oscar Wilde. He merely edited an edition. He also participated as an acknowledged family member in an Emory College lecture series honoring the famous biographer/critic.
The Chicago Tribune may have gotten their information about Ellmann and Edwards from here:
http://colombia.indymedia.org/news/2006/03/38643.phpPlame's employer, Brewster-Jennings, apparently has never tried very hard to hide its activities. Former employees like Jean C. Edwards [Google cache] and Robert Lawrence Ellman [Google cache] even advertise their association with the company on the Internet! They were doing so before Brewster-Jennings and Valerie Plame came to light and they still are.
The Indy article came out on Tuesday March 7. The Trib article says they called Edwards the next day, on Wednesday March 8, and that she removed the Brewster-Jennings and CIA references by Thursday the 9th.

I find it interesting that the "Robert Ellmann" resume you posted had a curious detail that caught my attention. The resume lists under publications Oscar Wilde by Richard Ellmann. Note Richard, not Robert. Richard Ellmann is quite famous in some literary circles, and in fact I have several of his books sitting on my bookshelf.
For more info see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Ellmann
I don't know what to make of this tid-bit but it would be quite sloppy for a Robert Ellmann or whoever to claim to be the author of a book actually penned by such a pseudo-famous man as the late and very real Richard Ellmann.

Chicago Tribune mentioned calling one person and asking about a Brewster Jennings & Associates resume online which was later removed, and this is another one.
