Beyer Cipher Pocket Watch

A Beyer pocket cryptologic device from the 1930s, which in size and appearance resembles a pocket watch of the era, has been donated to NCMF by Mr. Michael Graham of California along with photocopies of the original ten-page US Patent dated 25 January 1932. Only about a half-dozen examples of the Beyer device are known to exist. 
NCMF 2013 Spring Program:
Ms. Sandra Grimes on Aldrich Ames

The NCMF is pleased to welcome Ms. Sandra Grimes, author and former employee of the CIA National Clandestine Service, as guest speaker for the 2013 Spring Program. Ms. Grimes co-authored, "Circle of Treason: A CIA Account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men He Betrayed," with her colleague, the late Jeanne Vertefeuille. Together they worked on a CIA task force to investigate the disappearance of Soviet agents who were working undercover for the CIA. The lecture will focus on the decade-long investigation and the clues that led to the exposure of one of the most dangerous traitors in U.S. history. The program takes place on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at 10 a.m. Register NOW!
