Tudor-Hart, Edith

   One of the most unheralded Soviet spies of the period between the two world wars was the noted photographer Edith Tudor-Hart (née Suchetzky). Born in Austria, she married a left-wing English doctor and moved to London in the early 1930s. Tudor-Hart worked as a spotter and recruiter for Soviet intelligence. She helped enlist Kim Philby and other upper-class Britons sympathetic to Joseph Stalin’s Russia. She was deeply trusted by the Soviet intelligence service, which came to her for help in 1940 when they lost contact with Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt. According to Soviet memoirs of the period, it was through her efforts that Moscow reestablished its intelligence apparatus after losing the Ring of Five.
