Anonymous – Spy Master Dewey Clarridge

Duane R. (Dewey) Clarridge was one of the most colorful and unflinching spies in CIA history. He operated all over the world and was one of the greatest recruiters of foreign agents ever. A

swashbuckler and unabashed cold warrior, Clarridge was loathed by many but loved by more. When he died his funeral was a who’s-who of American national security legends, from spies to Iran Contra figures to foreigners who flew to the US to see off the man they had worked with for decades. One of the attendees (who because of his own role in the world of espionage required anonymity) spoke to David about Dewey, his life and his final send-off.
