      EVENT DETAILS
      A Life in Code: Pioneer Cryptanalyst Elizebeth Smith Friedman by G. Stuart Smith

      FPL welcomes author G. Stuart Smith who will discuss his book “A Life in Code: Pioneer Cryptanalyst Elizebeth Smith Friedman".  This book traces the career of legendary U.S. law enforcement agent, Elizebeth Smith Friedman, and her groundbreaking work for the Allies in World War I, through Prohibition and World War II.  Her decryptions brought a Japanese spy to justice and her Coast Guard unit solved the Enigma ciphers of German spies. Friedman's "all source intelligence" model is still used today by law enforcement and counterterrorism agencies against 21st century threats.

      G. Stuart Smith wrote this biography about his great aunt.  He is a retired professor of journalism at Hofstra University on Long Island.  Before that, he was an award-winning TV news reporter and videographer, who wrote the textbook, Going Solo: Doing Videojournalism in the 21st Century.  He also produced two award winning documentaries for public television, A Bridge to Cuba, following Florida residents who made friends with Cubans by participating in sailing races to Cuba, and Heritage or Hate? that investigated the use of the Confederate battle flag and other Confederate symbols on public displays around the country.  

      This program is free and open to the public.  No registration is required.
      If you are unable to attend this event in person, it will be available for viewing and replay via our FPL Livestream page at https://livestream.com/faylib.
