Rudolf Abel: the Story of a Russian Spy
Rudolf Abel, born Vilyam “William” Genrikovich Fischer on July 11, 1903, in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, was a Russian spy who worked in the United States from 1947 to 1957. During Abel’s military service in the Red Army from 1925 to 1926, he was trained as a radio operator. He worked briefly in Soviet Military Intelligence and was then recruited by the State Political Directorate (OGPU), a predecessor to the Committee for State Security (KGB), in 1927. In 1946, Abel began to train as a spy for entry into the United States. The following year, Abel entered Canada under the alias Emil Robert Goldfus and proceeded to the United States on November 17, 1947.
Abel operated out of New York City under his assumed name, Goldfus, as an artist and photographer. His primary assignment was to recruit and supervise agents who gathered intelligence information.
