About Fodor's

Fodor's - Fodor's Utah, 4th Edition
Born in 1905 and raised in Czechoslovakia, Eugene Fodor joined the U.S. Army’s psychological-warfare branch during World War II. He emerged a decorated war hero, thanks to his leadership in the liberation of Prague and Pilsen.

Multilingual and with extensive travel intelligence, Fodor began working for the CIA during the Cold War. His publishing career began in 1936 when Fodor created the first modern guidebook and many of his guidebook writers were undercover CIA agents. Fodor revolutionized the travel publishing industry, inspiring new generations to explore the world around them. An American, a Hungarian, a world citizen, a CIA agent, a war hero, a New York Times best-selling author, and an entrepreneur—Eugene Fodor was the spy who loved travel.
