Dr. David Kahn Donations March 2014

Dr. David Kahn has made another significant donation of cryptology related items to the National Cryptologic Museum. The AC Chairman traveled to New York in early March to pick up 5 boxes of books, journals, research notes and personal correspondence and memorabilia. The donation included 37 English-language and 18 foreign-language books on codes and ciphers spanning nearly five centuries of cryptologic history.

One of the “novel” items in this donation was a publisher’s picture puzzle of the front-cover of Dr. Kahn’s preeminent work, The Codebreakers. This was the 13th donation from Dr. Kahn over the past ten years. A photo of the partial stack of donated items is included here.
