Stalin’s Englishman: Guy Burgess, the Cold War and the Cambridge Spy

Friday, Sept. 15 - 5:45 p.m. Auditorium and Online

Enduring long before and after its use during the Great War, espionage is as popular of an intelligence tactic as it is a thrilling theme. Join author Dr. Andrew Lownie for a lecture exploring the colorful career of English-born Soviet spy Guy Burgess. Ascending through academia, the BBC, the Foreign Office, MI5 and MI6, Burgess became a member of the Cambridge Spy Ring and leaked thousands of highly sensitive secret documents to Russia.

Networking prior to the event begins at 5:45 p.m., with the lecture to start at 6:30 p.m.

Hosted in partnership with The International Relations Council of Kansas City and the English Speaking Union.
