By Landis Gores ’39
Posted on December 7, 2009

(Lulu Publishing) An American intelligence officer during WWII, Landis Gores worked for the code and cipher service of British Military Intelligence (MI). During that time he helped MI with a secret operation known as “Ultra, ” which ultimately cracked the highest-level codes of the German High Command. His two-volume memoir of Bletchley Park, home to the Ultra project, has now been published. Gores, who died in 1991, was an American architect best known for the modernist Gores Pavilion, the Gores Family House, and the House of All Seasons. For his military service, he was awarded both the Legion of Merit and the Order of the British Empire.
