Claire Phillips: WWII American Spy

Claire PhillipsJoin us at the library for a presentation about Claire Phillips, the Portland housewife and actress who became an American spy in Manila during World War II. She rose to international fame, became the only woman from Oregon to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and was the subject of a Hollywood feature film. Over time, she was forgotten, but local filmmaker and historian Sig Unander has resurrected Phillips’ story and will lead a compelling presentation and discussion about her life at 6:15pm on Wednesday, October 23 at West Slope Community Library.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required.
