About this Item


  • "Code Girls" Reunion


  • New York Times bestselling author Liza Mundy discussed her book "Code Girls: The Untold Story of the Women Code Breakers of World War II." Mundy used Library collections to provide her with overall background information and context when writing the book, and featured a few women veterans from the Library's Veterans History Project collections. That event, coupled with the book's increasing popularity, started a national conversation about these unsung women. Loved ones of the "Code Girls" reached out to the author, formed an unofficial online community and overwhelmingly agreed that it was time to draw attention to and preserve this important piece of American history. "Code Girls" who were uniformed members of the U.S. military or their surviving next-of-kin (including famed Science Guy Bill Nye) were asked to donate a collection to the Library as part of the event.
