Brown Bag Lunch

April 19, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

T he Saratoga Springs Public Library presents a talk on Jack Wilpers: The Main Who Captured Tojo on Thursday, April 19 at 1 p.m. as part of their Brown Bag Lunch Series.
Associated Press reporter Chris Carola tells the story of Jack Wilpers, a Saratogian who found himself making global headlines days after World War II ended. Lt. Wilpers was part of an Army intelligence unit that captured former Japanese Prime Minister Hideki Tojo, and the then 25-year-old Saratoga Springs resident played a key role in keeping Tojo alive after he attempted suicide. Carola will also detail how he finally convinced Jack Wilpers to talk to a reporter about that historic day for the first time in 65 years – thanks to Mother Nature, a chance encounter on a New England beach and a Saratoga Race Course giveaway hat.
Free admission, no registration required. Saratoga Springs Public Library, 49 Henry St., Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Information: 518-584-7860 ext. 254.
