John Huminik

John Huminik was a U.S. scientist and engineer recruited by the FBI to pose as a spy working for the Russians for over five years.  The bulk of the information that Huminik passed on to the Russians were technical documents pre-approved by the FBI.  It was Huminik's five years of undercover work that led to the expulsion of Soviet Embassy Secretary Valentin A. Revin.
