Exchange Exemplar: The Soviet Spy Who Never Got Caught

House of Representatives

Duncan Lee is not a household name, but he probably should be. 

In an age when Americans feared Soviet spies in their midst, he was one.  A spy, that is... and he spied for a very long time, somehow avoiding prison for his deeds. 

Duncan Lee's story is told by Mark A. Bradley in the book A Very Principled Boy.  Mark Bradley visited in 2014 to talk about this relatively obscure spy; we revisit that interview here.
