The FDR administration was warned in 1939 that high-level government official Alger Hiss might be a Soviet spy. State Department memos, declassified decades later; show that by 1946 most of the security staff believed Hiss was an undercover Communist agent. Hiss used his authority to obtain top-secret reports outside his area of responsibility, including the Manhattan Project. A State Department internal security investigation in 1946 finally placed restrictions on Hiss's access to confidential documents, but Hiss had already been a key player at Yalta and in the founding of the United Nations.
