These are unedited excerpts from a 1995 conversation with former Central Intelligence Agency Director William Colby. After serving in World War II, Colby joined the CIA and became a strong opponent of the Communist Party. In this interview from the Eisenhower Legacy Collection, Colby speaks about post-war America, the rise of communism within and outside the United States, and how the American government got involved in the Cold War. Independent producer George Colburn conducted this interview for a series of documentaries on Dwight D. Eisenhower’s military and political career – a period covering from 1941 to 1961.
