Great Lives Lecture Series: Women Code Breakers of World War II @ George Washington Hall, Dodd Auditorium Tickets
Jan 25 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Great Lives Lecture Series: Women Code Breakers of World War II @ George Washington Hall, Dodd Auditorium | Fredericksburg | Virginia | United States

In 1941, following the devastating surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, a group of female college students received secret letters from the U.S. Navy, inviting them to join America’s intelligence forces and train to become code breakers. Over the next two years more than 10,000 women would answer that call. Their efforts shortened the war, saved countless lives and gave them access to careers previously denied to them, but a strict vow of secrecy nearly erased their efforts from history.

Recently, through exhaustive research and interviews with surviving code girls, bestselling author Liza Mundy has brought to life this riveting story of American courage, service and scientific accomplishment. In her Great Lives talk, she will share this story that, in the tradition of Hidden Figures, is the account of an early cohort of women adept in science and math, whose efforts helped the Allies win the biggest and costliest war in human history.

The program is sponsored, in part, by UMW’s Common Read and Honors Program. It will be held in George Washington Hall’s Dodd Auditorium on the Fredericksburg campus of the University of Mary Washington, beginning at 7:30 p.m., and is open to the public free of charge.
