About this title


Was Benjamin Franklin a British spy? This is the startling but all too legitimate question investigated in this complete reappraisal of one of America's most illustrious founding fathers. Basing his case on previously unused papers of the British Secret Service, Dr. Currey concludes that Ben Franklin may indeed have been an enemy agent, known in intelligence documents as Number 72.

Franklin has traditionally been portrayed as a dedicated servant of the United States during the turbulent years of the nation's birth. Now, in 'Code Number 72 / Ben Franklin: Patriot or Spy?' author-historian Cecil B. Currey has brought to life an entirely different story.

Includes nine black-and-white illustrations and bibliography.

Cecil B. Currey received his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas, where his thesis was on 'Ben Franklin and the Radicals.'
