1930: David Kahn, noted cryptologic historian was born.

Description: 7 February 1930: David Kahn, noted cryptologic historian and author was born. Dr. David Kahn is an esteemed author whose book, "The Codebreakers," is widely acknowledged as the most comprehensive book ever written on the history, art and science of codebreaking. Dr. Kahn has had one of the world’s rarest collections of books, papers and artifacts related to the art and science of cryptology. We are extremely grateful that much of that collection is now the prized possession of the NCM and Library. Learn more about his donations to the Museum and Foundation via the link below.
