The Travel Channel’s popular series “Mysteries at the Museum” featured Special Collections‘ 1779 George Washington letter in this week’s new episode, in a segment about the Culper Spy Ring. A production team and film crew visited Special Collections last November to film the historically significant document. In each hour-long episode, host Don Wildman “unearths relics from the world’s greatest institutions to reveal incredible secrets from the past.”
The episode will air again on Wednesday, August 8 at 7pm. For more information about Stony Brook University’s spy letters, please consult the research guide for George Washington and the Culper Spy Ring.
