Lamphere, Robert Joseph
▪ 2003

      American government agent (b. Feb. 14, 1918, Wardner, Idaho—d. Jan. 7, 2002, Tucson, Ariz.), as a counterintelligence specialist for the FBI, supervised investigations into several major Soviet espionage cases from the end of World War II to the mid-1950s. He joined the FBI in 1941 after graduating from the National Law School, Washington, D.C. In 1947 Lamphere began work on the bureau's Soviet espionage squad. He used deciphered Soviet cables to build cases against numerous spies, most notably Klaus Fuchs—a German-born British physicist who was convicted in 1950 for having given vital atomic-research secrets to the Soviet Union—and Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were found guilty of having passed military secrets to the Soviets and executed in 1953. After leaving the FBI in 1955, Lamphere worked for the Veterans Administration and later as an insurance company executive. His memoir, The FBI-KGB War: A Special Agent's Story, appeared in 1986.
