Distinguished Guests at the Central Intelligence Agency

The Central Intelligence Agency has hosted many distinguished guests during the past fifty years. Several Presidents of the United States have taken the opportunity to visit on significant occasions, such as swearing-in and groundbreaking ceremonies. More recently, the list of visitors has expanded to include diverse academic and civic groups, media representatives, a child sponsored by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the children of Agency employees on "Take your Child to Work Day."
