Executive Committee (EXCOM)

Acquisitions

  • Dave D'Auria, Chairman

    The Acquisition Committee (AC) acquires new cryptologic artifacts and artwork for the NCM gallery exhibits and displays, and books, maps and photographs for the NCM Library. We look for items directly related to the signals intelligence (SIGINT) and Information Assurance (IA) mission of the NSA, and the codes and ciphers theme of the NCM. Our interests include rare cipher machines, encryption devices and communications security equipment, and other items and period pieces related to cryptology that enhance our exhibits and gallery displays (e.g., field site photos, cipher textbooks, newspaper headlines, magazine stories, advertising-related items, movies, old security posters, cipher games and toys, etc.). We use a traditional and eclectic mix of sources to acquire items for the NCM. In the recent past those sources have included private collectors and donors, antique malls and shows, flea markets, former NSA/CSS employees, our contractor partners, and yes, even eBay.
