I was saddened to learn of the recent death of Peter Earnest, a retired CIA officer and founding executive director of the International Spy Museum.
He was 88.
The International Spy Museum announced the death of Peter Earnest on February 14th.
“We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our long-serving founding executive director and dear friend Peter Earnest. Peter was a defining voice in the development of the Spy Museum more than 20 years ago. His incomparable leadership and enthusiastic determination guided us to create a new kind of institution,” the announcement stated.
