Clip | 3m 45s

History detective Eduardo Pagan searches through microfiche at the public library in order to find articles related to the Nazi spy ring that Jim so vividly remembers. He finds record of the arrest of Dr. Fred W. Thomas, a German-born obstetrician, and a counter-spy named Grace Buchanan-Deneen. Pagan then provides background on fears of sabotage and espionage during World War II.
