"29 Nov 62 NOTE TO FILE. In re 'SVERTLOW', _______ extremely sensitive, mentioned to an American non-Kubark officer in 1957 a Colonel SVERTLOV or SVATLOW in the United States under non-official cover. The conversation was hampered by linguistic barriers and the field speculated that this may have been a reference to SWIATLO. It is beginning to appear possible that the reference was to an illegal, stationed in the United States, not identical with SWIATLO."
