Fred Rose was a labor organizer, left wing politician, Soviet agent, and atomic spy. He was born in Lublin, Poland, and lived in Montreal where he joined the Young Communist League. Rose quickly became a member of Gaik Ovakimyan's North American NKVD network where he worked with Jacob Golos, Elizabeth Bentley's employer, providing Canadian passports for Soviet agents. In 1942 he switched to the GRU, Soviet military intelligence. Rose was elected to the federal Canadian parliament from a working-class district in Montreal. He was re-elected in 1945.

In September 1945 Soviet Embassy GRU clerk Igor Gouzenko defected, revealing an elaborate espionage operation to acquire American atomic research. Fred Rose was a major player in the scheme. Rose was found guilty of conspiring to turn over information about the explosive RDX to GRU chief Colonel Nicolai Zabotin, and was sentenced to a six-year prison term.

He returned to his native Poland in 1953 after his release from prison and died in Warsaw in 1983. David Levy lives in Montreal, Quebec.
