Bridget Rose Dugdale was born into a family with wealth and prestige in Britain in 1941. By the mid-1970s she had become an internationally known violent radical who masterminded one of the greatest art thefts of all time. Our guest tonight is ANTHONY M. AMORE, Director of Security and Chief Investigator at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. His latest book is not just the wild story of that famous art theft but also traces how Dugdale’s life evolved into one of violent action to protest the treatment of Northern Ireland prisoners by the British government. Amore’s book is titled: THE WOMAN WHO STOLE VERMEER: THE TRUE STORY OF ROSE DUGDALE AND THE RUSSBOROUGH HOUSE ART HEIST.
