This talk will be delivered by Bill Hall. Bill was an intelligence officer for the US Air Force, serving on active duty from 1969 until 1999, much of that time overseas. He grew up in Virginia and received a bachelor’s degree in politics from Princeton University and a master’s degree in foreign affairs from the University of Virginia. Bill lives year-round on Peaks Island with his wife, Nancy. He’s the immediate past president of the World Affairs Council of Maine and serves on the boards of several Maine nonprofit organizations.
