Subject: Re: Glen Michael Souther was a Soviet Spy

Hello Richard,

For about a year I carpooled with Shirley Wiergacz, Souther's mother. This was in 1985-86, and the carpool broke up about the time he disappeared. I even met him once. I thought it was odd that he was so interested in Russian stuff, but really didn't think anything of it at the time. Later I heard on the news when he surfaced in Moscow and later, when he died. I didn't find out about the book until a couple of weeks ago, though.

The book goes into a lot about his father, but believe me, his mother was a character too. I've often half-joked that he defected just to get away from her. But as a parent myself, I wouldn't wish what she had to go through on my worst enemy. I truly hope she has been able to find peace amidst all this.

Since I didn't see any reference on your site to this, I thought there might be a possibility you didn't know about this case. But I know how touchy family stuff can be, so I well understand why you might not have it for the world to see. Is his case common knowledge among the larger Souther family?

By the way, speaking of family skeletons, did you know that there are 3 men who live on Long Island with a much bigger secret: Their Great uncle was Adolf Hitler:

To me, this trumps any of the family secrets the rest of us may have!

If you can spare some, send a few warm breezes to Milwaukee, OK?

Best Regards,

Tom McMahon

For nearly 20 years during the height of the Cold War, Boris Aleksandrovich Solomatin, oversaw most of the KGB's
anti-American spy operations. The now-retired major general played a key role in the "handling" of John Walker Jr.,
the Navy officer who headed the most damaging spy ring ever to operate against the United States. Solomatin also
recruited Glenn Michael Souther, a lesser-known Navy officer, who provided the KGB with some of America's nuclear
war plans before eluding the FBI and fleeing to Moscow where he committed suicide in 1989. The Souther case is
worth noting because he is considered to be the only American in recent times to have betrayed his country because
of ideological reasons rather than for money.

Glen Michael Souther
AKA: Mikhail Yevgenyevich Orlov

U.S. Spy for Soviets
(1957 - 1989)



Glen Souther served on the carrier Nimitz based in Norfolk, Virginia, from July 1976 to November 1978. He moved to the Staff of the Sixth
Fleet in Italy in 1979, and, in 1982, he transferred to the Naval Air Training Command on the Patuxent River in Maryland. In that year, Souther was
honorably discharged with the rank of petty officer first class. He served in the Naval Reserve until May 1986, then vanished.

In late 1985, an espionage ring conducted by John A. Walker whose wife had informed on him rocked the Navy. Hearing of this, Souther's
brother-in-law remembered the 1981 incident where Souther's ex-wife had informed on him and felt that the woman's statements should be
reconsidered by Navy investigators. The FBI suspected Souther of feeding KGB handlers information on satellite-surveillance programs while
working in the Naval Reserve at Norfolk, Virginia.

He apparently knew that FBI agents were tailing him and had seen him rendezvous with KGB field agents. Exactly when Souther was
recruited to the KGB is unknown but it was reported that he agreed to Spy against the U.S. while on his Italian tour of duty.

Souther did not resurface until July 20, 1988 when he was profiled in a television program, "Camera on the World," which portrayed Souther
living in Russia. During the 50-minute program, Souther stated that he had defected to the Soviet Union because of the negative attitude toward
Russia that had been drummed into him in the U.S. from childhood. He was disillusioned with American nuclear arms policies, he said, and added
that he had discovered at an early age the works of revolutionary Russian poet Vladimir Maykovsky, which inspired his admiration for the Soviet
Union.

The defecting American was critical of American intelligence, condemning the many espionage missions in which he was involved,
including the 1986 bombing raid on Libya, an attack aimed at the sponsor of international terrorism, Muammar Qaddafi. Souther inferred (rather
naively) that the CIA had something to do with the Chernobyl nuclear accident in April 1986.

U.S. Naval intelligence minimized the damage that Souther had done through his spying activities. Precisely what information on spy
satellites he was able to turn over to his KGB handlers is not known. When his suicide was announced by Moscow in June 1989 in an obituary
appearing in the Defense Ministry newspaper Krasnaya Zveda, Souther was referred to as Mikhail Orlov. The paper reported that "he had a short
but full and brilliant life totally devoted to the struggle for removing the threat of nuclear war hanging over mankind and for a better life for
ordinary people. " The report added: "Over a long period he performed important special missions and made a major contribution to ensuring state
security." The paper identified Souther as "a Soviet agent and KGB officer."

What makes the Soviet statements suspect is the fact that the KGB seldom if ever admits to any American spy being a Soviet agent let
alone "a KGB officer." It is quite possible that the hapless Souther was not a double agent but a triple agent, one who posed as a defector to gain
access to Soviet intelligence, and, when the KGB learned of this, it simply arranged for Souther's mysterious death, then publicly claimed the
defector as one of their own as a taunt to the CIA, as well as a hidden message stating that they, the Soviets, knew Glen Souther was a plant all
along. These are the deadly games played in espionage.

former navy photographic specialist who disappeared in May 1986, had been granted political asylum in
the Soviet Union. Just before his disappearance, Souther, a recent graduate with a major in Russian
Studies from Old Dominion University, was questioned by FBI counterintelligence agents. According to
one source, investigators were acting "on more than suspicions, but didn't catch him in the act of
espionage, and thus couldn't hold Souther at the time he was questioned."

While attending college, Souther had been assigned as an active reservist to the Navy Intelligence Center

considerable concern to FBI and Navy officials since the former Navy enlisted man had held special
security clearances while on active duty with the Sixth Fleet in the early 1980s. During that time he had
access to highly classified photo-intelligence materials. Souther joined the Navy in 1975 and left active
duty in 1982 with the position of photographers mate. According to the Soviets, the former Navy specialist
had asked for asylum because "he had to hide from the US special services which were pursuing him
groundlessly."

Described as a bright but undisciplined young man by former teachers and acquaintances, Souther
reportedly had wanted to become a US Naval officer, but had been turned down as a Navy officer
candidate. On 22 June 1989, at the age of 32, he reportedly committed suicide by asphyxiation after
shutting himself in his garage and starting his car. Russian newspapers suggested he had been
disappointed by aspects of Soviet life after defecting in 1986 and was prone to depression.

A Moscow Suicide Reveals Glenn Souther's Double Life as a U.S. Sailor Spying for the K.G.B.
By William Plummer, Chris Phillips, Grant Pick
The obituaries that appeared in the Soviet press were adulatory—and profoundly disturbing. Glenn Michael Souther, the U.S. Navy photo analyst who disappeared from the United States in 1986 and surfaced in Moscow last year, had died at the age of 32. It was not Souther's death that occasioned alarm—official Washington had long ago written him off as a traitor—but the Kremlin's extraordinary disclosures about his espionage career. Referring to Souther as Mikhail Orlov, the Soviets hailed him as a master spy who gave them "precious" secrets, including detailed U.S. plans in the event of nuclear war with the Soviet Union. His missions had earned Souther the rank of major in the KGB. However, the gratitude of his Soviet controllers was apparently not enough to sustain him: On June 22, he took his own life by inhaling the exhaust fumes of his car. "His nervous system," said KGB chief Vladimir Kryuchkov, "could not stand the pressure" of life in the U.S.S.R.

While the reports prompted U.S. intelligence officials to reassess the damage Souther may have done, his friends were mystified. They don't recognize the young man depicted in the Soviet propaganda; then again, they don't agree on what sort of fellow Souther really was. Those who knew him as a youth describe an ordinary boy they can barely remember, but friends from Souther's years at Virginia's Old Dominion University recall a wild man who was always the life of the party. No one, it seems, could explain Souther's transformation—nor the disillusionment that prompted his betrayal.

There were no portents of that during his childhood. Public school records in his hometown of Munster, Ind. (pop. 22,000), say he was born Jan. 30, 1957. His father, Gene, worked as an office manager for the company that makes Wonder Bread, while his mother, Shirley, was a secretary. Christine Petsas, who lived across the street from the family's home in a blue-collar neighborhood, says Souther "was a good kid, but nothing extraordinary." At Munster High School he was an average student who ran track. "Glenn was a nice, straightforward guy, like the rest of us," says Tom Rasch, a friend from the track team. According to Rasch, Souther had no strong interest in politics or foreign affairs. He did, however, develop an interest in photography.

After his parents divorced around 1970, Souther moved with his father to Cumberland Center, Me., where he finished high school before enlisting in the Navy. Souther served on the carrier USS Nimitz from 1976 to 1978, then transferred to the Sixth Fleet in Italy, where he married and fathered a child. In 1982 he was stationed in Maryland before being honorably discharged later that year.

Souther promptly enlisted in the Naval Reserve in Norfolk, where he analyzed satellite photos and had access to highly classified military material. He was also attending Old Dominion University and building a reputation as a local character. "He was the guy at parties who always put on a lamp shade," says Barbara Fahey, whose husband, John, served as Souther's adviser in Russian studies.

Not everyone was amused by Souther's antics. Fellow student Lana Rodriguez, a Soviet Jew who immigrated to the U.S., remembers receiving a phone call from Souther asking her to tutor him in Russian. An hour later he was knocking on her door, introducing himself in fluent Russian as "a rapist," and launching into a story of how he had been suspended from school for a year for assaulting a coed. "He said he dated this girl for a while, and they'd broken up," recalls Rodriguez. "That semester, he said, he...knocked her down and bit her. He said she called it rape, but it wasn't. He obviously was crazy, but he was not a rapist."

Souther also evinced a split personality when it came to his studies. John Fahey remembers him early on as one of his "worst students," who was close to failing. But Leonid Mihalap, another Russian professor at Old Dominion, found Souther's mastery of the language so impressive he thought his student was a Soviet infiltrator. "He submitted a term paper on the Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky that was so excellent and flawless it occurred to me that only a Russian could have written it." Around the same time, Souther's estranged wife told Navy officials she believed her husband was spying for the U.S.S.R., but investigations turned up no evidence.

Still, Mihalap was stunned when Souther turned up in Moscow two years after his graduation, announcing his defection and criticizing U.S. nuclear arms policies and intelligence missions like the bombing raid on Libya. The Faheys believe that Souther left because he felt "rebuffed in this country." More than anything, says John, Souther wanted to enter the Naval Officer Candidate School. But he was turned down. "I think he decided to defect because he wasn't making it here," says Barbara Fahey. "So he said, 'Well, I'll show you!' " Whatever Souther's motives, some believe the Kremlin's claims. Says author Ron Kessler, who is writing a book on Souther: "He was a very successful spy who retrieved sensitive information for the KGB."

In the U.S.S.R., Souther reportedly married a Russian woman and had another child, yet happiness eluded him. The Soviets "probably took away the only thing that made him really special—his crazy free spirit," says Rodriguez. Mihalap speculates that Souther's disillusionment may have led him to emulate his beloved poet Mayakovsky, who committed suicide at age 37. Like many who knew Souther, Mihalap views his former student's double life and his death with conflicting emotions. "My feelings are split—for the man I have known and feel sympathy for, and for the man who turned out to be a traitor. It's very sad."
He was born on 30 January 1957 at Hammond, Lake, Indiana.1 He was the son of Eugene Sherman Souther and Shirley Elizabeth Swartz. Glenn Michael Souther was also known as Mikhail Yevgenyevich Orlov. He was graduated in June 1975 at Greely High School, Cumberland, Maine.2 He died on 22 June 1989 at Moscow, Russia, at age 32.1 He was buried on 26 June 1989 at Kuntsevo Cemetery (Military Section), Moscow, Russia. He was obituary on 27 June 1989 at Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star - Military Newspaper). Glenn graduated from Greely High School, Cumberland, ME in June of 1975. Glenn enlisted in the United States Navy on 4 Jan 1976. He later turned against America and joined the KGB as a spy. After committing suicide he was buried on 26 Jun 1989 in the military section of the Novokuntsevskoye Cemetery located in the western suburbs ofMoscow, RUSSIA. (Also the resting place of the late British traitor Kim PHILBY).

Glenn Souther, a Navy satellite photography expert, is believed to have stolen the Navy's nuclear war plan. He successfully escaped to the Soviet Union in 1986 where he was given the rank of major in the KGB....

The following mini biography was taken from, Facts on File: Yearbook 1989; The Indexed Record of World Events, Volume XLIX, (New York, 1989).

U.S. DEFECTOR DIES. The death of Glenn Michael SOUTHER, a U.S. defector in the Soviet Union, raised questions about his background and activities. SOUTHER's obituary was published June 27 in Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star), the Soviet military newspaper.

SOUTHER, 32, had been a former U.S. Navy petty officer and had worked as a satellite-intelligence analyst with the Sixth Fleet from 1975 to 1982. He had disappeared from the U.S. in May 1986, shortly after leaving the Navy and being interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in an espionage probe. He had turned up in the Soviet Union in July 1988. the U.S. government had treated his defection as an event of little significance.

The obituary June 27 identified SOUTHER as Mikhail Yevgenyevich ORLOV, a major in the Soviet KGB (state security organization) and said that he had died June 22. The cause of his death was not specified, nor was the location. His American name appeared only in parentheses.

The obituary hailed him as a hero who had, "for a long time...performed important special assignments and made a major contribution to insuring the security of the Soviet Union."

The obituary prompted brief speculation in the U.S. that SOUTHER might have been born in the Soviet Union, trained in espionage and sent to America as a youth. However, that theory was quickly dispelled as friends, relatives and teachers in the U.S. attested that he had been born and raised in the state of Indiana.

KGB, chief Vladimir A. KRYUCHKOV, June 28 disclosed to Western reporters that SOUTHER had committed suicide. "He had long displalyed a nervous state of mind. He was very gifted and was easily hurt. We cannot blame anyone for his death."

KRYUCHKOV refused to talk about the circumstances of SOUTHER's KGB recruitment or the nature of his spy activities.

Pravda, the Soviet Communist Party newspaper, July 1 favorably compared SOUTHER to the late H. A. R. (Kim) PHILBY, the British defector who had been a major spy for the U.S.S.R.

Another article found in the 10 Jul 1989, edition of Time, p. 40 provides more details.

"THE ODD CASE OF M. ORLOV: A defector who dies in Moscow turns out to be a spy".

The obituary read like the opening page of a spy novel. Mikhail Yevgenyevich ORLOV, alias Glenn Michael SOUTHER, who had "made a large contribution" to Soviet state security, had "died suddenly" at 32. For the KGB leadership committee, which signed the article in the military newspaper Red Star last week, ORLOV's death was a "huge loss." But could this ORLOV really be SOUTHER, a one time U.S. Navy photographer who had defected to the Soviet Union more than a year ago? In calling SOUTHER by a Russian name, the obituary seemed to suggest that the deceased had actually been a Soviet mole, sent to live in America at an early age and assigned to burrow into the U.S. military.

In a surprising show of glasnost, General Vladimir KRYUCHKOV, head of the KGB, hurried to correct that impression. Yes, he told reporters in Moscow, ORLOV was SOUTHER, who first surfacead in the Soviet Union last July claiming that the FBI had been harrassing him. "I lost my future," he said. But SOUTHER acquired his Russian name only after he was granted asylum last year. What was news was that SOUTHER, as Izvestia reported last week, had been spying for the Soviets "for a long time" and had acquired the rank of KGB major.

SOUTHER had aroused suspicions before his defection. Graduating from high school in Cumberland, ME, in 1975, he enlisted in the Navy and was trained as a photographer. Based in Italy at Sixth Fleet headquarters from 1979 to 1982, he married an Italian woman. They later separated and in 1986 his estranged wife approached a Navy officer to report SOUTHER as a spy. SOUTHER had too much extra money, she claimed, and took Government documents home in violation of regulations. Authorities initially dismissed her accusations as an ex-wife's spite, but now suspect that SOUTHER was recruited by the KGB during that tour in Italy. KRYUCHKOV refused to confirm that but said more details of SOUTHER's career in espionage would be published. "We can be quite open about this," he said. "We have our spies and you have yours."

SOUTHER left the Navy in 1982 to study Russian literature at Virginia's Old Dominion University. He also worked as a reservist at the Atlantic fleet intelligence center in Norfolk. He was assigned to a laboratory processing satellite-reconnaisance photos and also might have been privy to sensitive communication intercepts. The investigation into his ex-wife's allegations was reopened in 1986 and after questioning by the FBI, SOUTHER defected. In spite of his warm reception by the KGB, his marriage to a Russian and the birth of their daughter, he was not happy in Moscow. "I haven't found my niche exactly," SOUTHER told Soviet television viewers last year, but he had decided "to live here or not to live." He apparently decided on the latter course: according to KRYUCHKOV, SOUTHER had committed suicide "in a nervous state of mind."

"U.S. sailor Glenn Souther defected to the U.S.S.R. and ... sold U.S. plans on targets, on satellite surveillance photos, NSA intercepts of Soviet communications, and H-bomb delivery routes."

hidden message stating that they, the Soviets, knew Glen Souther was a plant all along. These are the deadly games
played in espionage.

Elder Thomas Faunce

M, b. 1647, d. 27 February 1746
     Elder Thomas Faunce was born in 1647 at Plymouth, Massachusetts.1 He was the son of John Faunce [Anne passenger] and Patience Morton [Anne passenger]. Elder Thomas Faunce died on 27 February 1746 at Plymouth, Massachusetts.1 He was buried at Burial Hill, Plymouth, Massachusetts. It was Thomas Faunce, last Ruling Elder of the Plymouth Church that identified Plymouth Rock in 1741 as the landing place of the Mayflower party. His information came from his father, who had come to Plymouth in the ship Anne in 1623 and from acquaintance with several members of the Mayflower's landing party, who were still living during his boyhood.

Another account taken from the New England Historic Genealogical Register, Volume CXIV, p. 120 is as follows:
"Deacon Ephraim Spooner tells the following story - In 1741, when he was a boy of six, he happened to be on the beach one day and never forgot how ruling Elder Thomas Faunce, an "aged and Godly" man in his 95th year, had been brought there in his wheelchair from his home at Eel River several miles to the south. To the handful of people gathered there Faunce related how, as a boy, he had been told by his father, who had heard it in turn from some who had come of the "Thievish Harbour" expedition, that the Pilgrims had made their first landing at Plymouth on a rock - and, shaking with Palsy, he pointed out the rock. Then, with tears coursing down his face, the old man bade it a last farewell, for he and everyone had reason to fear that it was about to be destroyed to make way for a wharf. Tradition says it was Elder Faunce's habit to assemble his children and grandchildren at the rock on each anniversary and tell them of their forefathers."

On 6 Jul 1685, Thomas was chosen Town Clerk of Plymouth and held office until 1723. He died at his home near the Eel River Bridge, Plymouth and is buried at Burial Hill. His tombstone reads:

Here lyes buried
the Body of
Mr Thomas Faunce

Church of Christ in

His experience was one of the many which brought on the War of 1812. British frigates were then accustomed to recruit their seamen in complete disregard of whether or not they were British subjects and few men thus shanghaied ever returned to tell the tale. Thomas was sized one day on shore by a press gang which included the ship's captain. His cries brought friends but they had no weapons. Several friends took boats and rowed not far away. Thomas attacked the captain in his open boat, the crew eighter unable or unwilling to interfere successfully. Thomas either killed or disabled the captain, he never knew which, swam to a friend's dory and returned safe to his wife.2
