C.I.A. lawyer Walter Pforzheimer '35, had a passion for the history of espionage. He arranged for this copy of the Old Campus statue to stand at headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Originally mounted outside the main entrance, it was moved when someone felt that a failed spy should not dominate such a prominent spot. But his image is still prominent on the home page of the agency's website - www.cia.gov - where he stands with the official agency seal.
Pforzheimer's large collection of documents and artifacts relating to the art and work of spies is stored at the Beinecke Library.
