It's USC&GS Special Publcation 251, dated 1952.  "Conformal Projection in
Geodesy and Cartography."  No, he did not offer guidance on such.  He
presented the math with proofs and gave a few brief statement on usage
throughout the world as he could apparently find out about in the USC&GS
Library.  It was quite limited in comparison to what Army Map Service had,
but that was mainly classified at the time and AMS was busy with the EU50
Datum adjustment.  It is rumored that Paul D. Thomas did the math and
derivations on contract to AMS for the UTM.

I don't have Thomas 1952. Out of curiosity, did he tender recommendations
for choice of standard parallels?
