Retired US Treasury Special Agent To Share Experiences


On Nov. 3, the Upstate SC Chapter of Sisters in Crime will welcome guest speaker Craig L. Waldon, who served as a U.S. Treasury Special Agent from 1975 until his retirement in 1999. A graduate of Furman University, Craig later took graduate accounting courses at Florida State University to qualify for the Treasury position. His first Federal job was as an IRS Tax Fraud Investigative Aide. After becoming a Treasury Special Agent, he served as a field agent in Ft. Lauderdale and Tampa before becoming the Orlando, Florida, Group Manager. At the close of his employment, he served at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, Brunswick, GA, as Chief of Basic Training, and was detailed to the Behavioral Science Division as a Senior Instructor for Basic and Advanced Interviewing  

Since retiring from the Treasury, Craig has kept very busy, joining Furman University’s Development Office. He was Director of Donor Research before retiring again in 2013.  An ROTC program graduate, he also served on active duty from 1971until 1973. Craig continued his military service in the Florida National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve reaching the rank of Major.
