A Cold War Museum and Old Bust Head Brewing Company presentation by intelligence historian David Hadley on "The Rising Clamor: The American Press and the Central Intelligence Agency in the Cold War, 1947-1976."
Drawing from his upcoming book, David Hadley will explore the relationships that developed between the Central Intelligence Agency and the domestic U.S. press in the early decades of the Agency’s existence. Hadley seeks to place the contacts between the CIA and the media in the proper historical context, debunking some of the more extreme theories about the Agency and providing historical perspective on questions still surrounding the national security bureaucracy and the press to this day.
An Ohio State University graduate, David Hadley received his PhD in the summer of 2015. From 2015-2016, he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Historical Office of the Office of the Secretary of Defense and is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Gettysburg College.
The Rising Clamor is Hadley’s first book. It is scheduled for release by the University Press of Kentucky in mid-2019.
This is the twelfth in a series of presentations on significant Cold War related events and activities sponsored by the Museum. The presentations feature expert eyewitnesses to and authorities on the Cold War era.
