T. A. Bisson

During World War II, Thomas Arthur Bisson was an Asia specialist and alleged Soviet spy working in the United States Board of Economic Warfare (BEW) and later the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR). He was also a founding editorial board member of Amerasia and China Today.

In 1943 Bisson is alleged to have supplied Joseph Milton Bernstein, his GRU contact, confidential BEW reports including a joint British-American evaluation of the military situation on the Soviet-German front, as well as reports on American strength in the China theatre of operations, a report by the Chinese embassy in Washington D.C. on trade between Chinese nationals in Japan and Chinese mainland industrialists, a report by an American consul on conditions in Vladivostok, a report on Chiang Kai-shek's war with the Communist Party of China forces, and internal United States government discussions regarding direct contact with People's Liberation Army forces to arrange establishment of air bases in territories under their control.

His alleged code name in GRU intelligence reports and the Venona files is "Arthur".
