Anatoly Fyodorovich Dobrynin
Birth: Nov. 16, 1919
Death: Apr. 6, 2010
Moscow Federal City, Russia

Soviet Diplomat. Born outside of Moscow in Krasnaya Gorka, he served as the Soviet Union's ambassador to the United States from 1962 to 1986. Trained as an aviation engineer, he was recruited to Moscow's Higher Diplomatic School following the Communist Party purges of the 1930s. From 1952 to 1955, he served in the Soviet embassy in Washington D.C., and also served as Under-Secretary for Political and Security Council Affairs at the United Nations from 1957 to 1960. He helped defuse tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, developing a back door channel of communications between Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. In 1972 he helped draft the anti-ballistic missile treaty with U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, effectively ending the arms race between the the United States and Soviet Union. He was the author of "In Confidence: Moscow's Ambassador to Six Cold War Presidents" published in 1995. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
