It was the late 1930’s, and the likelihood of the United States becoming involved in World War II was increasing.
Officials from intelligence services were finding a need for counterintelligence.
Members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) began learning about the strategy, receiving assistance from the British intelligence and U.S. cryptographic advancements, according to a release from The Cold War Museum.
Counterintelligence played a key role during World War II and the Cold War.
FBI Historian John Fox Jr. will present on the topic at 2 p.m. on January 12.
Fox, who has held his current position since 2003, received his master’s in political science from Boston College and his PhD in modern American history from the University of New Hampshire.
The Cold War Museum and Old Bust Head Brewing Company are hosting the discussion at the brewery, 7134 Lineweaver Road in Vint Hill.
Tickets are available for $35 on eventbrite, and any available tickets will cost $45 at the door.
Anyone unable to attend the program may purchase an online ticket and receive access to the video by emailing Cold War Museum Executive Director Jason Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
