Join them in the Hormel Center on Tuesday, October 31st, from 6-7:30 pm as Lisa E. Davis discusses Undercover Girl. The author will present a slideshow of archival images from her research on Angela Calomiris, which have their own riveting story to tell, and read from her book.
At the height of the Red Scare, Angela Calomiris was a paid FBI informant inside the American Communist Party. As a Greenwich Village photographer, Calomiris spied on the New York Photo League, pioneers in documentary photography. While local Party oﬃcials may have had their suspicions about her sexuality, her apparent dedication to the cause won them over.
