As a side note, the dataset is actually quite dirty: there are a lot of
duplicated names and locations. Many names are listed both with and without
honorifics. Many officers are listed both by first name/last name and last
name/first name (and some full names also include middle names). There are
numerous typos in names.

To answer Moses' question, I would suggest treating the whole network as
tripartite (officer+intermediary / address / entity) and then project it to
get either a network of entities or a network of officers/intermediaries.
