The Spies of Georgetown Walking Tour
July 24, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0$42
Come hear insider stories from former CIA officer George as you stroll through the scenic Georgetown neighborhood. Learn about the pivotal role the residents here played in the WWII era. We’ll visit the former homes of William “Wild Bill” Donovan, William Colby, Roald Dahl, and Alger Hiss and see places linked to the espionage activities of Elizabeth Bentley, and Vitaly Yurchenko.
Along the way, participants will be asked to put on their spy hats and consider the role of surveillance in an operative’s daily life.
George is a former Senior National Security Officer with 30 years of experience with the Central Intelligence Agency, Department of State, and as a Military Intelligence Officer in the United States Army. He served multiple assignments in Central Europe, Eastern Europe, and South Asia leading intelligence collection operations. He also led the CIA’s advanced tradecraft school and worked in the CIA’s Counterintelligence Center.
