Sneaking into the Guggenheim Museum

2/11/85

Amb. Quinn describes how he posed as a State Department security officer protecting the wife of the Special Advisor to the Secretary of State so that they could gain entry after hours to the Guggenheim Museum to see a special exhibit of Austrian artists. At a critical moment, when they fear they are about to be discovered, they have to decide whether to make a break and escape and avoid being apprehended.
