- Provenance: The Russian items here were collected by Peter Denisevich during his two year stint as a post war assistant military attache (precursor to today's CIA) in Moscow. Mr. Denisevich served 21 years in the US Army. During WWII he served in France, Belgium, Holland, and Germany as Lieutenant Colonel and Brigade Commander of the 104th Infantry. In 1945, he was sent to the US embassy in Moscow, USSR, serving as Assistant Military Attache, where he and his first wife Rose met and were married. As an observer-interpreter fluent in Russian, Peter obtained and analyzed information on Soviet military and industrial capabilities, as well as the changing social structure, reporting this information to Washington D.C.. Returning to the states in 1947, he served with the CIA where he was Chief Economic Analyst in the USSR branch, coordinating research and analysis on Soviet economic capabilities, providing advisories to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the National Security Council, and President Truman. Over the years he returned to Europe for several CIA projects, including the formation of a defector inducement program and expanding the program to analyze Soviet capabilities. Again in the states in 1953, Peter taught Russian at the US Military Academy at West Point and later served as Dean of Students at the Army Intelligence School at Ft. Hollabird, MD.
