PAVEL IVANOVICH FEDOSIMOV
Major Pavel Ivanovich Fedosimov, KGB.
Last seen in August 1948 boarding a ship bound for Russia. In the absence of any proven sighting or documentation that proves otherwise, this man is SM.
Is this just a name picked out from a book? In a way, it was because we were directed to a particular book by Senator Cavanagh in 1970. Of all the books he could have chosen and there are hundreds that had been written about the Cold War years, he chose just one, The Atom Spies. In this book, there is a page that describes the meeting of spy Harry Gold with a man that matched the description of the Somerton Man. He was tall, he walked on the balls of his feet and he was a spymaster. The same incident was described in another book, his name appeared in the second book.
