Cryptologic History Calendar
1894: Brigadier John H. Tiltman, only foreign citizen in Cryptologic Hall of Honor was born in London.
John Tiltman made the transition from the manual ciphers of the early 20th century to the sophisticated machine systems of the latter half of the century. "The Brig," as he was affectionately known in both countries, compiled a lengthy record of high achievement. His efforts at training and his attention to all the many facets that make up cryptology inspired the best in all who encountered him.
