Volodarsky, NIKOLAI KHOLKHLOV (John Eipper, USA, 12/03/05 12:30 pm)

Nikolai Khokhlov "Whistler", Self-Esteem with a HAlo collected by WAISer Boris Volodarsky (Borwall, Vienna, 2005, pp. 104) is the first of a series "Personal Fikes", in which documents about significant individuals are woven toegether to form a biography:

To judge by the names of forthcoming volumes, they are primarily Russian; Grigory Agabehov, Oleg Gordievsky, Alexander Orlov, Alfred Redl, Lisa Zarubina, Reiss ,Krivitski, Umansky Brothers, George Weidenfeld, and Victor Yushichenko.

The editor of the series is Boris DeWall, hence the name of the publisher, Borwall. There is an editorial board consisting of Tennent H. Bagley (Brussels), Warren W. Williams (Wales), Marthin F. Dewhirst (Glasgow). and Oleg Gordievsky (London). Volodarsky's volume was approved by Ordievsky, who has written a Foreword which introduces us to the underground world of spies. Khoklov had the odd nickname "Whistler" because he put on an act of whistling. He refused to carry out a KGB order to kill a Russian migr in Germany in 1954, abandoned his family and settled in the West, Volodarsky goes into great detail, describing his interrogation in the US. He finally got a job as a professor of psychology at California State University at San Bernardino, where he recently became emeritus. On his retirement, he received a gold watch with this citation:

Professor Khokhlov's international reputation brought a measure of fame to our department. He remains quite active, currently finishing the revision of the first volume of his autobiography, and has begun work on the second volume as well. Swept but the winds of freedom and new-found hope, he is regarding as a folk hero in his native Russia and his autobiography is to serve as the basis for a television series, produced by Russian public television and the BBC, entitled "A Matter of Conscience" (the title of his book). That so few people are aware of the scope of Dr. Khokhlov's international stature and his intensely personal life struggle following his defection from the Soviet Union in 1954 is a testimony to his quiet humility in these and related matters. As we all know, his "old-world" European Russian gentility provided a touch of special class to the department.
