Robert Hanssen

American FBI Agent who Passed Information to Soviet Intelligence
Robert Hanseen was born on April 18, 1944 in Chicago, Illinois. He was the son of a Chicago police officer and a housewife, Howard Hansen who was part of a special division called the Red Unit, created to ferret out communist sympathisers during the Red Scare.
Robert Hanssen attended Knox College in Galeswood, Illinois, majoring in Chemistry while also taking Russian as a foreign language. After being rejected for a position as a cryptographer with the NSA, enrolled in the Dental School of Northwestern University in 1966. At Northwestern, Hanssen became known for his penchant for wearing Black suits to class every day. In 1968, halfway through the Dental program, Hanssen grew tired of it and decided he would rather become a psychiatrist. After growing tired of this pursuit, he returned to Northwestern and earned an MBA in accounting and
information systems.
He met Bonnie Wauck, a student nurse at a state mental facility in Chicago in 1965. The two married on August 10, 1968. Wauck was the daughter of a University professor and a practicing Catholic, and member of the Opus Dei organisation. Four years later, Robert enrolled in the Chicago Police Department and was soon assigned to a special training class for a new division of the department that focused on police corruption. He was distrusted by many within the division, including his boss, John Clarke. He was considered a devoted family man in his community, spending time with his children, teaching them to excel at academics. He also became an enthusiastic member of Opus Dei, which was deemed a cult by many. The organisation instructed its members to attend Catholic church services every day and confession once each week. He applied twice to the FBI and was accepted the second time in January 1976, and was assigned to the Bureau’s Gary, Indiana office but was transferred two years later to New York City. Living with his wife and four children in Scarsdale, New York, Hanssen was
having a tough time making ends meet and decided to exploit his position with the FBI.
