The coordinator of this web site is Deborah (Debbie) Anderson, daughter of Joseph Desch,  Research Director for the U.S.N.C.M.L. I am in Dayton, Ohio, and work on this site as a way to share the information I’ve amassed with the public.

I can be contacted at this link. Please make your subject line specific, to make it distinguishable from spam.

Personal note: I’m taking a brief break from public appearances. I’ve been so honored to be able to meet with audiences, share the stories I’ve learned, and spread this little known story. I’ll be returning soon.

Much of the information and many of the photos used in this web site are from the Archive Center at Dayton History.

Resources in Dayton, Ohio where information about the World War Two codebreakers can be found:

Information about the Sugar Camp cabin now on display at Carillon Historical Park can be found by visiting the web site of Dayton History . Follow the links to Carillon Historical Park.

The repository of the best primary source information about the USNCML remains the National Archives and Record Administration 2 in College Park, Maryland.

In April, 2004 The Secret in Building 26 written by Colin Burke and Jim DeBrosse was published. This book was the product of years of research by Burke, and material gathered by DeBrosse when writing the Dayton Daily News series. That book remains the sole and best narrative of the cryptographic work in Dayton in WW2.
