Jim Root Posted May 26, 2005 Share Posted May 26, 2005 As I continue to research this intersesting fellow I have learned that he was married to a Russian. Information gathered from family and friends indicates that John B. Hurt was fluenet in Russian, which would not be odd considering that his wife was a native of that land. So I posed the question about this Russian speaking ability to the NSA historian I have been communicating with an received this reply: "Jim: Sorry to be late in responding.... I can only confirm that John Hurt knew Japanese, French, and Latin. Dave In previous communications I had received this comment: " I cannot be more specific about Mr. Hurt's postwar assignments, since most documents about that period are still classified." As I ponder these pieces of information, is it to much to think that John B. Hurt did in fact speak Russian and that he was working on projects that required that ability and that those "assignments.... are still classified?"
