NSA Cryptography Course

This article, from some internal NSA publication, is about Lambros Callimahos, who taught an intensive 18-week course on cryptology for many years and died in 1977. Be sure to notice the great redacted photo of him and his students on page 17.

The photo on page 17 was seemingly a portent of the future. Many students of today are indeed tablet heads...

The footnote on page 17 suggests the publication is the Cryptologic Spectrum.

Makes you wonder why they bothered taking the photo in the first place.

Petréa — people with an appropriate security clearance get to see the faces instead of tablets :3
