State of Washington Archives: on Drugs

Michael Baumgartner: Advised counternarcotics team in Afghanistan

Baumgartner spent seven months advising a counternarcotics team in Afghanistan. Baumgartner spent his days urging farmers to plant wheat instead of opium poppies. He also wooed his future wife, Eleanor, a British journalist and consultant who was working with him. In 2009, the two moved back to Washington together.
