Women Spies in American History

One of our research interests concerns the role of women who have been spies in America's conflicts.  We are grateful for the contributions of one of our summer interns, Eleanore Jenks, who initially suggested this topic as one that might be of interest, and who began the collection, and, with a little bit of luck, will continue to curate it.  Thanks, Elli!

Here's a page of our initial offerings.  Check back often for additions.  Our intern says she will keep her eyes open!

Currently available:
