Richard Schroeder is a former CIA officer and author of The Foundation of the CIA: Harry Truman, the Missouri Gang, and the Origins of the Cold War. He talked about the history of U.S. intelligence gathering through World War II and detailed how and why President Truman established the CIA in 1947 at the start of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. Mr. Schroeder also told the story of the people instrumental in the CIA’s creation, many of whom were allies from Truman’s home state of Missouri. The International Spy Museum recorded this event in November 2017. close
