In Memoriam Registry

The Foundation's In Memoriam Registry provides colleagues, friends, and families an opportunity to recognize and honor departed individuals who have served within the cryptologic community during their careers.

From a Gold Bound Book to a Touch Screen Kiosk to a Digital Search via IPad....

Originally, the names of those being honored and those of their sponsor(s) were recorded in calligraphy on a certificate entered in a gold bound registry.

This process was then replaced by a touch-screen In Memoriam kiosk at the Museum. The Registry was also added to the NCF website where photos and more in-depth information the honoree could be included.

Now, in 2022, the kiosk has been replaced with an iPad set to the Commemorate section of the NCF website so that families and friends can view the full In Memoriam entry. See links below to the alphabetical registry listing.
