Title: Kim Philby (1912-1988)

Description: Kim Philby (Harold Adrian Russell "Kim" Philby; January 1, 1912-May 11, 1988), at right, being interviewed at a press conference in Moscow in 1955. Philby, a high-ranking British MI6 officer, had stolen secrets for the Soviets for many years before defecting to Russia. He was part of the notorious Cambridge Five, all British traitors who had become Soviet agents, and having graduated the prestigious Cambridge University, including Guy Burgess (Guy Francis De Moncy Burgess; April 16, 1911-August 30, 1963); Donald Maclean (Donald Duart Maclean; May 25, 1913-March 6, 1983); Anthony Blunt (Anthony Frederick Blunt; September 26, 1907-March 26, 1983), and John Cairncross (July 25, 1913-October 8, 1995). All worked in the British diplomatic corps or were members of MI5, British Counter-Intelligence, or MI6, British Intelligence, and had access to top secret information. From before WWII and until the early 1950s, these spies passed a great amount of government secrets to Soviet spymasters. Maclean, Burgess and Philby defected to Russia, where they lived and died as KGB officials. Blunt, a noted art historian and chief leader of the group, confessed in 1964 but was given immunity in exchange for information on Soviet spy networks. Cairncross confessed in 1951 and was released from his position at MI6 and migrated to the U.S., before returning to Europe as a teacher. He and Blunt were not prosecuted, nor did British officials really want to catch the defecting Maclean, Burgess or Philby as any trials of these traitors and spies would further expose government secrets. Cairncross alone, for instance, had given the Soviets 5,832 secret documents.
