In early October 2011, I traveled to Laurel, Md. to present my research at the National Cryptologic History Symposium alongside Associate Professor of Journalism Cheryl Heckler. My research incorporated a historical analysis on Whitelaw Reid’s “The Cipher Dispatches,” regarding the 1876 Hayes-Tilden election. For my presentation, I specifically pinpointed Thomas Nast’s famous cipher cartoons, “Illustrating Thomas Nast: the political influence behind his cartoons in the Cipher Dispatches and beyond.” I presented my findings to National Security Agency and general members in a locked-down facility of the Johns Hopkins University Kossiakoff Center Friday October 7, 2011.
