Pearl Harbor: The Day of Infamy
April 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
The monthly meeting of The Women’s College Club of Princeton will feature as speaker Robert Ashbaugh, former Deputy Director of the Department of Justice. He will present a lecture on “Intelligence Analysis and War preparations in 1941.” He will discuss how our government operated prior to one of the most seminal events in American history. He will discuss insights into the U.S’s new technological marvels: radar, the electronic detector, and MAGIC, the decoded intercepts of Japanese diplomatic communications. The U.S. government failed sometimes with plausible explanation, sometimes not. In 2013 Robert Ashbaugh was recruited to join the Department of Homeland Security. Following his retirement, he and his wife moved to Princeton. For several years he served as a department guest of The Law and Public Affairs program at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.
