The Varnum Memorial Armory Museum has acquired a rare piece of Cold War memorabilia. Here’s the signature of the Soviet spy, John A. Walker, who sold U.S. Navy secrets for 18 years in one of the most damaging espionage cases of the Cold War.
Varnum Continentals member, John Fischer, studied under Walker to earn his U.S. Naval School Radioman Class A certificate that is signed by Walker. See below for details on this fascinating story. Thank you, John, for donating this unique piece of Cold War history!
See the images in this post for details on this unique exhibit.
