Anthony Blunt (1907-1983)Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Anthony Blunt (1907-1983)

Description: Anthony Blunt (Sir Anthony Frederick Blunt; September 26, 1907-March 26, 1983), British Army intelligence officer, MI5 official and noted art historian, who was a double Soviet agent in England and a member of the notorious Cambridge Five, all British traitors who had become Soviet agents, and having graduated the prestigious Cambridge University, including Kim Philby (Harold Adrian Russell "Kim" Philby; January 1, 1912-May 11, 1988), Guy Burgess (Guy Francis De Moncy Burgess; April 16, 1911-August 30, 1963); Donald Maclean (Donald Duart Maclean; May 25, 1913-March 6, 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 was 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.
