A KGB cover name that appears in the notes on KGB foreign intelligence files from the late 1940s and early 1950s taken in the early 1990s by Alexander Vassiliev, a former KGB officer and journalist, during his research for a Russian-American collaborative book project. This cover name is identified in Vassiliev’s notes as standing for Alger Hiss. It looks like a ” communication pseudonym” assigned for the purpose of operational correspondence about investigations  of espionage charges in the United States.
